My Take on This Sale
Alaska Airlines has the best mileage program in the business because mileage earning is still based on actual mileage (distance-based) and not on ticket price (revenue-based). If you fly 1,000 miles, the minimum mileage earning will be 1,000 miles with multipliers of up to 75% depending on class of service. The minimum mileage accrual is 500 miles. I fly between Portland (PDX) and Seattle (SEA) often with a distance of just 129 miles. The minimum that I receive for those flights is 500 miles with multipliers applied based on class of service bonuses.
Long-haul mileage redemptions usually begin at 12,500 and top out at 50,000 miles in economy depending on time of year and day of week.
During this sale, you can book coast to coast for as little as 10,000 miles. Are you looking to travel to someplace warm this winter? There are excellent mileage redemptions to Kona starting at 12,500 miles and Maui beginning at 15,000 miles each way.
