With Alaska Airlines acquiring Virgin America, they’ve set up the ability to transfer points at a ratio of 1 to 1.3 from Virgin American to Alaska Airlines.
They are also handing out Alaska Airlines miles like candy.
If you’re a Virgin America Elevate member (and had the account open by December 5) then when you join Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan they’ll give you your choice of 10,000 miles or $100 towards a ticket.
The deadline for this offer was January 31.
(If you had active Alaska Airlines and Virgin America accounts already you’ll also get 10,000 bonus Alaska Airlines miles.)
askmrlee points out that the deadline has been extended to February 28.
So if you haven’t picked up your 10,000 miles yet, it’s not too late.
