2020 Summer Olympics Buy Miles/Points Promos

Last Day: Buy Alaska Miles with Up to 50% Bonus for Great Premium Rewards

Written by Charlie

This is the last day to buy Alaska miles with up to a 50% bonus. This opens up a lot of premium rewards at low prices – great for flying to the 2020 Summer Olympics as well, in style.

Buying airline miles is not always the smartest value proposition. However, Alaska Airlines is likely one of the best airlines to buy from, thanks to all their partners and low redemption amounts for premium awards. When there are sales like this, it can just be too good to pass up – if you have a trip in mind and the awards are available!

On the airline side, it doesn’t get much better than a sale on Alaska Airline miles! This is thanks to the incredible airline partnerships they have with airlines like Cathay Pacific that let you use miles for business class or first class around the world at very reasonable prices.

Note: If you buy miles using the link above, I will earn a small commission. Thank you for that if you do but please only buy miles if it makes sense for your award travels now! I do not recommend you buy miles on speculative award redemptions as programs can and do devalue. But, if it makes sense for you, thanks for using my link! 🙂

Asia in Business Class From 50,000 Miles!

You can get deals like 50,000 miles one way from the US to Asia with Hainan Airlines or Cathay Pacific! Or fly Cathay Pacific in First Class for 70,000 miles! That could present some terrific value since you would essentially be paying $984 for a one way business class ticket on Cathay Pacific. That is certainly not for everyone (I won’t be doing it) but many people wouldn’t mind spending a little more than an economy ticket (for some destinations) to get a business class award!

Plus, this can be a great way to travel to the 2020 Summer Olympics in style and for not that much more than economy tickets are likely to cost!
