As good as it gets: Alaska Mileage Plan sale now on with 50% bonus miles

From now until 19 May 2019, earn up to 50% bonus when you purchase miles on Alaska Mileage Plan.

Note that the sale is tiered, and you’ll have to purchase at least 40000 miles to trigger the additional 50% bonus.


You can purchase up to 60000 miles at a time, and with the 50% bonus, this means that you can receive up to 90000 miles at just under 2 US cents a mile. This is more or less the best sale that we’ve seen, and it’s definitely good enough if you need some additional miles for an upcoming redemption. The maximum number of miles you can purchase (including bonuses) per calendar year is capped at 150000.


Alaska Mileage Plan is perfect if you wish to give the Japan Airlines ‘one-way’ trick a go, or even snag First or Business Class seats on Cathay Pacific.


Use your UOB Visa Signature card to earn 4 mpd for S$1000-S$2000 spend per statement cycle, or your DBS Woman’s World Mastercard, to earn 4 mpd up to S$2000 per calendar month. Alternatively, you can earn 3 mpd when you use your BOC Elite Miles World Mastercard, and also 3 mpd when you use your Standard Chartered Visa Infinite (subject to a minimum spend of S$2000 per statement cycle).
