In 2011, Alaska Air launched a special mileage plan for residence of Alaska known as Club 49. Club 49 comes with the added benefit of 2 free check bags when traveling to, from or within Alaska and a Travel Now voucher providing 30% off a full Y fare class for last minute travel. Now, Alaska Airlines has upped the ante and is offering DOUBLE redeemable miles on ALL Alaska Air flights this spring and summer for Club 49 members!
Do take note that ONLY Club 49 members are eligible for this promotion and the double miles do not count towards elite status. To be eligible for this promotion, you must be a resident of Alaska and sign up for Club 49 before flying. Alaska residence who are Alaska Mileage Plan members are NOT automatically registered for Club 49, and one must apply for the additional benefits. Alaska Air does use state public records to verify residency, therefore non-residence will not be approved.
