Alaska Airlines is currently offer 50,000 bonus miles for their card.  This is advertised as a “Exclusive Limited Time Only Offer”.  I am not sure who it’s targeted to but I’ve read Washington residents.  Although, it appears that anyone can apply as their is not a “code” required to access or apply for offer.  Many who are not from Washington have already applied and received their bonus.

Alaska is not a part of any alliance but they have many partners. and therefore you have access to fly on all their partner airlines.  There partners are:  Aeromexico, Air France, American, British Airways. Cathay Pacific, Delta, Emirates, Fiji, Korean, KLM, LAN, and Qantas. They only assess fuel surcharges for travel on British Airways.

You can book one-way tickets and they can even have a free stopover. Every partner airline has their own award chart when using Alaska miles and many are very good.  Additionally, Alaska is partners with Starwood, so you can transfer 20K Starpoints into 25K Alaska miles.

I’m a little bummed myself as I just applied for this card a few month back and only received 30,000 bonus miles.  Although, the timing was great as those miles came in handy when I just booked my families flight from Anchorage to Juneau which was only 7,500 per ticket and a total of 30,000 miles for the four of us. I also used American Airlines miles I earned from my Citi Platinum Select / AAdvantage to book our flights from LAX to Fairbanks.   It’s great when you get a larger bonus but sometimes timing is more important if you really need the miles for a trip your planning.  In this case, I needed those Alaska miles, so I planned ahead with my Alaska Airlines card application.  Can’t wait for June in Alaska!

So if you haven’t had this card for over 12 month, I would highly recommend it!
