Alaska Airlines Offers 5000 Bonus Miles To New Members

Airlines are looking for new frequent flyer members and are willing to front bonus miles to get them. Traditional frequent flyers aren’t traveling so much now, and flights have a lower proportion of members than airlines are used to. They need a marketing relationship with the people who are flying, in order to encourage them to fly more and take their credit cards.

We’ve seen 5000 miles for joining Aegean’s excellent program and 7500 miles for joining the recently-improved Qatar Airways program.

Now there’s an offer for new Alaska Airlines members to earn 5000 bonus miles.

  • Join by February 5, 2021
  • Fly by May 31, 2021. The first two segments earns 2500 bonus miles, and flying four segments in this timeframe earns a second 2500 bonus miles

Terms and conditions:

Bonus miles offer is valid only for new Mileage Plan members who enroll and register via the promotional landing page by February 5, 2021. Enrollment and registration must take place prior to the first qualifying flight.

Eligible members will receive 2,500 bonus miles after completing two qualifying flight segments and an additional 2,500 bonus miles for completing two more qualifying flight segments prior to May 31, 2021, for a maximum total of 5,000 bonus miles.

To qualify, the flight must be eligible to earn Mileage Plan miles and must be credited to the new Mileage Plan account; Travel is valid on Alaska Airlines flight 1-1999, 2000-2999, and 3300-3450. Codeshare flights and flights with partner airlines do not qualify.

An individual Mileage Plan member may receive a maximum of 5,000 bonus miles via this offer, even if they hold multiple separate Mileage Plan accounts. Offer is not combinable with other Mileage Plan enrollment or account activation promotions. All Mileage Plan conditions of membership apply.

With Alaska’s renewed partnership with American Airlines, oneworld membership starting March 31, distance-based earning (not revenue-based!) and pledge not to devalue their award chart without notice they’re likely a strong option for many.
