Alaska Airlines has responded to Delta’s award flash sale with a sale of their own, sending out an email with some nice deals like San Francisco to Dallas for 5,000 miles one-way and New York to Dallas from 7,500 miles one-way. Even Midwest markets like Indianapolis, Kansas City, and Minneapolis have sale flights from 9,000 miles one-way. If you’re going to try to take advantage of the Quick Deal we posted a little while ago on the Kimpton in Seattle (See: Book Fast: 1 Night In Seattle + 10,000 IHG Rewards Club Points For $73), you might be able to save on your award flight home.
- Alaska Mileage Plan flash sale, with awards to many cities available from 5K one-way
- Direct link to promotion landing page (choose your city out of the drop-down to see deals)
- Purchase by 11:59 pm (PT) on February 19, 2018, and at least 21 days prior to travel.
- Travel is valid on select days from March 6, 2018 to May 16, 2018. Blackout dates apply.
- $125 fee for changes made within 60 days of departure
There are a lot of cities on sale in this one. For example, here are all of the cities available for 5K each way from San Francisco (and keep in mind that there are other cities available from 9K and 10K).
There are also sales from Delta cities like Atlanta and Raleigh-Durham to Seattle from 10K miles.
And of course there are plenty of West Coast options like a number of cities from San Jose for just 5K miles one-way.
This is a nice award sale with some great deals. Some of them are on routes that are often inexpensive for cash tickets (like New York to Dallas), while others are on routes that are probably even stronger values. As noted, these need to be purchased by February 19, 2018 — but many of the best rates may not last. I’d suggest booking sooner rather than later if you find a date that works with your schedule.
