Buy Cheap Alaska Mileage Plan Miles – And Why You Might Want To…

Some links to products and partners on this website will earn an affiliate commission.

Alaska Mileage Plan is back with another ‘Flash Sale’ – this time offering a bonus of up to 40% when you purchase Mileage Plan Miles.

Good deal?

If you max out the promo and buy 84,000 miles, you’ll pay ~£1,440 ($1,773.75):

That works out at about 1.71p per mile. The cheapest that I can remember Alaska Miles being on sale for is ~1.58p per mile, so this is slightly more expensive.

I wouldn’t be tempted to buy speculatively at these prices, but if you have a high-value use for Alaska Miles in mind (there are lots), it could make sense to take advantage – just make sure the award space you want is available first!


If you are in the market for Alaska Miles, this isn’t a terrible price. Unless you have an immediate use in mind though, I wouldn’t be in too much of a rush – I’m sure we’ll see similar (or better) sales again soon.

      It’s a truly great redemption (particularly to MAN on the A350 for those of us in The North)… but I’ve actually just discovered something even better. Post out soon 😉

          Haha – it’s a genuine cracker. I’ve just been running some tests tonight to make sure it all works in practice as theory suggests (and it does 🙂 ). First instalment out early tomorrow morning. The REALLY good stuff will be shortly afterwards – hopefully all by tomorrow afternoon, but could be a little later.
