If you’ve not already taken advantage of this ongoing sale, do note that the 40% bonus from miles purchased with Alaska MileagePlan will end on 9 Apr. If you purchase the maximum of 60000 miles, you’ll receive a bonus of 24000 miles, bringing your total to 84000 miles, at a cost of 2.1 cents per mile.
Alaska MileagePlan miles are great for redemption on Cathay Pacific and Japan Airlines. Specifically, you can take advantage of intra-Asia sectors through Japan, where a ’round trip’ ticket on Japan Airlines Business Class will cost you less than S$700!
While this isn’t the best sale we’ve seen, it might be worthwhile to purchase miles if you’ve got a redemption in mind.
