I don’t normally pay attention to ads on the Internet, but I do when it concerns my own blog. It’s good to have some idea of what sponsored content is appearing alongside my own — and amusing to see what Google thinks I’d be interested in.
Update: A reader pointed out that this is only available to residents of Washington and Oregon. Sorry for not catching it earlier.
Offer Terms: The $25 Discount Code sign-up offer is valid for new Mileage Plan member sign-ups only. Must be a resident of Washington or Oregon to qualify. Offer is valid for sign-ups through September 30, 2014. Please allow 48 hours for Discount Code to be issued.
Just this evening I noticed Alaska Airlines is running a campaign that offers a $25 coupon toward a future flight when you join their loyalty program for the first time. It’s just one of a number of ways that you can save money on Alaska Airlines flights:
- An extra 5% off weekly specials if you subscribe to their email newsletter
- 5% off any fare for you and a companion when it’s your birthday (we’re going to Las Vegas for the big 30!)
- $25 or 5,000 miles if Alaska takes more than 20 minutes after arrival to deliver your checked baggage
Even if you didn’t need the extra money, Mileage Plan is one of the better loyalty programs for less frequent travelers because you can credit Delta and American flights to the same program. They’ve got some good redemption opportunities with their international partners as well as good redemptions on their own flights if you can redeem Avios for non-stop awards. Check out more reasons why I think Mileage Plan is one of the better U.S. loyalty programs.
So if you haven’t joined yet, I suggest you click on the ad if you see it, or just click on this link.
