Alaska Airlines is currently offering a promotion of 50% bonus elite miles on all flight. All flights currently earn 150% elite qualifying miles for all classes. Even saver fares earn 150% base elite miles. First class fares and fare classes Y,B,M,H all earn additional bonuses, but this is normal year round.
With fewer people flying, Alaska is trying to lure their elites with bonus miles and a way to make it easier to qualify for status. It’s also a way to thank people for flying during these slow times.
The promotion which was announced on March 6 for travel through April 11, 2020 has now been extended. All Alaska and Horizon air flights now earn the bonus through May 31, 2020. An extra 6 weeks of 50% bonus miles!
You must register for this promotion before flying to earn the 50% elite bonus miles. If you previously registered, you do not need to reregister.
Celebrate 50% With Caution.
Thank you, Alaska for extending this promotion. This is among the first promotion any major airline has announced for domestic US Flyers. Many of your frequent flyers who will hopefully be back in the air soon for both work and pleasure will appreciate the bonus.
Remember, if you are flying right now. Please adhere to the CDC’s warnings and adhere to all local laws and bans.
