Check Your Alaska Account! 10K Bonus Miles Appearing For Many!

Written by Charlie

Check your account – 10,000 bonus Alaska miles are showing up for many people! This is a great bonus that has some real value within Alaska’s great award program.

Now, it is possible to begin transfers of miles between Virgin America and Alaska MileagePlan. With a transfer ration of 1:1.3 for Virgin to Alaska, this is a great way to build up your Alaska account to book some of the great awards available.

10,000 Bonus Alaska Miles Appearing In Many Accounts!

However, some people have received a little bonus ahead of these transfers! I am certainly  not sure what the criteria is, but many people (my father included) have received 10,000 bonus miles in their Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan account! This is a nice beginning to the transfer window but it is strange as to why there is not mention of anything via e-mail or by what criteria this bonus has been issued.

Still, take 30 seconds and check your Alaska account – you could find a nice 10,000 mile bonus there to start out your week!

I do want to say this – do not be calling and complaining if you did not get them! While it should be ok to simply ask if there is some way these miles could be issued to you as well, things like this happen sometimes and people getting mad that they were not targeted can ruin it for everyone else. And I am saying this as one who was not targeted! 🙂
