Alaska Airlines Giving away 10 million miles!
Alaska Airlines is running a very unique promotion in partnership with their credit card and their shopping portals to give away 10,000,000 miles this holiday season.
Alaska Airlines has a great credit card for its companion certificate. A buy one get one ticket on any route, any time, is awesome, but where they lack any sticking power is in the day-to-day use of the card. One Alaska Airlines mile per dollar spent isn’t terribly rewarding, and 3 miles per dollar on Alaska flights is awesome, but there are better cards out there that earn 3, 4, or even 5x on travel.
In an interesting promotion (I imagine in order to drive use of the credit card) you can get one entry to win up to 1,000,000 miles (for a total of 10,000,000 miles) from November 14th to December 24th.
The grand prize winner will win 1 million miles. 5 winners each get 500,000 miles, 20 will walk off with 100,000, the next 100 people get 30,000 each and finally 150 winners leave with 10,000 miles each.
Honestly, I’m OK with winning at any level, and the fact that over 275 people will be winning miles in this promo is awesome.
You don’t have to have a credit card to play the game, but the way to enter to win doesn’t seem too exciting or rewarding. Those who remember back to the IHG Priceless Surprises promo, entering was a sure thing. You could mail in your entry and get an email with a small guarantee of 500 miles with the chance to win a freight of tens of thousands of miles. This one is just an “enter for a chance…” But, if you have a small army and a lot of postage, you can do it!
