‘Tis the season of gift-giving and Alaska is continuing that by offering very generous gifts elites in their program. If like before, this is for MVP Gold and MVP Gold 75K elite members. If that is you, check out the great gifts they are offering!
Alaska’s Generous Gifts For Elites
Last year, I matched to Alaska’s MVP Gold 75K status and had full intent to give it a ride and requalify for this year based wholly on my use of the frequent flyer program and the redemption abilities. However, plans changed and I was not able to make it so this was my one year with the status.
However, that didn’t stop them from offering some generous gifts again this year! Here is what I received (and what you will have access to if you are a MVP Gold or MVP Gold 75K elite member).
The three gifts being offered are:
- 2 Gold Guest Upgrades
- 2 Board Room Day Passes
- 2 GoGo WiFi All Day Passes
Comparing the three of those offers, I think the best offer for me would be the upgrades (all of these expire 12/31/2016). These upgrades can be used for family or friends (or for blog readers, if I don’t get a chance to use them!) so that is a plus. With the other items, I already have quite a bit of lounge access thanks to status and cards and the GoGo passes can be purchased cheaply so I would not go that route either.

For Matched & Expiring Elites Too!
Here is a great thing about this offer – the last time I received the e-mail and gift offer it was January 12 of this year. That is past the expiration date for elites that do not retain their status (December 31). That means that only those elites who had earned/gained the status for this year would have been eligible for the gifts.
This year, the e-mail arrived before the December 31 cutoff and that means that even those elites who are expiring this year can pick up a couple of upgrade certificates! Not only that, but this works will all elites at those levels – including those that received the status based on a match! That is really generous as they had a lot of people matched to the program last year and they are giving all of those members one more shot at some of the great benefits of the program, even if they did not requalify.
So, what are you selecting for your gift?
