[EXPIRED] Another great offer: Alaska Airlines – spend $250, get $50/5K back [Targeted]

Alaska Airlines Companion Fare

Miles to Memories is reporting on another new Amex Offer that I didn’t receive on any accounts this morning: Spend $250+ with Alaska Airlines, get 5,000 Membership Rewards points. #jealous (no, that’s not a Twitter sync). The best play here would be to use it in conjunction with an Alaska Companion Certificate if you are an Alaska Airlines credit card holder (you don’t have to use your Alaska Airlines credit card to make that booking). I didn’t get targeted for this one,…

My strategy given BOA 2/3/4 rule

You may have read this week that Doctor of Credit has confirmed a new rule with regard to Bank of America approvals that is being dubbed the 2/3/4 rule. Greg is currently on vacation, eating his way through Italy on what looks like an epic food tour. At any rate, I’m sure he may have some analysis on the new rule when he returns next week. In the meantime, here’s my strategy going forward. 2/3/4 Explained…

11.5K to Hawaii: Now use Singapore miles to fly on Alaska

Singapore Airlines and Alaska Airlines recently announced a partnership. Today, Singapore released its award chart for travel on Alaska, and it results in the new cheapest awards to Hawaii from the middle of the country westward, with travel as low as 11,500 miles one-way (which should include flights from places like Denver, Pheonix, Boise, Bozeman, Calgary, and more). While British Airways has long been a good redemption for Alaska flights departing the west coast at 12.5K one-way, this…

Alaska Airlines has a new promotion out that incentivizes the use of three different mileage-earning methods and it stacks with promotions currently being run by each — meaning that you can earn a minimum of just over 3,000 Alaska miles, but you could easily earn 5,750 or more if you stack the promotions right. Furthermore, there is what appears to be an unadvertised opportunity to win 150,000 Alaska Mileage Plan miles through one of the promotions. Dash for Miles Challenge…

Alaska allowing guests again with Priority Pass

Back in May, Alaska airlines stopped allowing Priority Pass holders to bring guests into its Boardroom lounges (and access even for primary cardholders was often being restricted due to space constraints). However, effective yesterday, access has been expanded and Priority Pass holders are now permitted to bring two guests into Boardroom locations in Seattle, Portland, and Los Angeles. Of course, lounges could (and probably will) still be capacity-controlled. However, this change is obviously a net positive…
