5000 Bonus Alaska Mileage Plan Miles for New Members Who Fly by September 30


Earn 5000 bonus Alaska Mileage Plan miles for new Mileage Plan members who sign up by April 30, 2017 and fly a paid flight on Alaska Airlines or Virgin America by September 30, 2017, via Reddit. While most readers likely already have an Alaska Mileage Plan account for themselves, this could be a good time to sign up a spouse, partner or child for Mileage Plan if you're likely to book a paid flight for them for travel by September 30.

Here's the link to the Alaska Airlines 5000 bonus miles promo page and the link to signup for a new Mileage Plan account to be eligible for the 5000 bonus points.

5000 Bonus Alaska Mileage Plan Miles for New Members



I Have an Alaska Mileage Plan Award Flight Before September 30, 2017; Does That Count?

No, only paid Alaska and Virgin America flights that are eligible to earn Alaska Mileage Plan miles count.


If the Flight Has an Alaska Flight Number But is on American Airlines Does That Count?

No, Alaska codeshare flights don't count.


What if I enrolled in Mileage Plan March 22, 2017--Can I Receive 5000 Bonus Points If I Fly By 9/30/17?

Unfortunately no--you must enroll as a new Mileage Plan member between March 23, 2017 - April 30, 2017. Enrollments before March 23, 2017 don't count for purposes of the promotion.

What Are Good Awards to Book with Alaska Mileage Plan Miles?

Now that it's so much more expensive to book Emirates First Class awards with Alaska miles, I consider some of the best awards JAL First Class or Cathay Pacific First Class to Asia, which is just 70,000 miles each way. Or if flying to Africa, try to redeem for Cathay Pacific Business Class to Africa via Hong Kong, for just 62,500 Alaska miles, with the option to include a stopover in Hong Kong, even on a one way awards.

Will you be signing up a family member to earn 5000 bonus Alaska Mileage Plan miles?
