Crediting to Alaska Airlines
Alaska Airlines is a fantastic partner to credit to because they’re offering anywhere between 250-475% bonuses for flying on British Airways. The long haul flights are “I” class flights, earning 50% class bonus and 100% redeemable bonus miles. The intra-Europe flights code as “J” class which means 150% class bonus, and 100% redeemable mileage. As a 75k member, you’ll also earn ANOTHER 125% bonus which is just a stupid insane number of miles. WOW!
Act Fast, this sale won’t last!
The sale is ending Sunday night at 11:59pm, so act fast. Remember, that if you want to buy the ticket and then confirm your plans, you’ll have 24 hours to cancel with no penalty. These sales happen every so often (there was another one a few months back) but they aren’t always good from so many cities.
