January 19th, 2010
Alaska Airlines has just launched a special offer for new members from Oregon and Southern Washington. When they join the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan, new members get 5,000 mile signing bonus.
In order to benefit from the free flight, you need to accumulate miles. Only one round trip on Alaska Airlines or Horizon Air to, from, or connecting in Portland will get the new member another 20,000 miles. In order to get the miles you need to choose a qualifying flight, which means any paid ticket on Alaska Airlines or Horizon Air, excluding “Hot Deal” fares. Make sure to join and fly before April 1, 2010.
Once you get the total of 25,000 miles (singing bonus and the qualifying flight miles), you can redeem them for a free award ticket anywhere Alaska or Horizon fly in the Continental U.S. and Canada. Alternatively, you can also use the miles for an award ticket on their 12 major airline partners, including Delta or American Airlines .
Mare sure to also check out the airline’s special web fares .
