2 Day Sale from Alaska Air – Starting at 5,000 Miles or $39

Written by Charlie

With a new airfare sale from Alaska, you can fly from just 5,000 miles or $39! This could be a good deal to use 5,000 miles for flights up to a couple of hours or more, or you can pay $39 for some flights!

Tuesday is the day that many carriers in the US launch airfare sales – these include Southwest, Spirit, Frontier, and Alaska (and sometimes JetBlue). To mix it up this week, Alaska is also running a 2 day sale on award tickets.

While using Alaska miles for premium cabins on partner airlines is really a tremendous value, it could also be a nice deal to use just 5,000 miles for a 2 hour flight! The above example would give your Alaska miles a value of 1.68 cents each. Not bad!

If you would rather pay with cash, check out that sale here from just $39.
