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

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.
