Earn 1,300 Alaska Airline Miles For $8.75

I know – 1,300 miles is not a huge amount. Not only that, it is basically buying miles and who likes to do that? 🙂 But, because Ultimate Reward points and Membership Reward points do not transfer to Alaska Airlines (SPG’s Starpoints do transfer) and because the sign-up bonus on their credit cards is only 25,000 miles, picking up Alaska miles is always a good idea.

The cost for these miles works out to .67 cents per mile. That is a really good deal for “buying” miles, even though it is a small amount of miles.

This deal involves getting a NY Times Digital subscription through the Alaska Airlines’ Mileage Plan shopping portal. The portal is paying out 1,300 miles for getting a subscription which costs $5 for 12 weeks. The terms of the payout indicate that they will reverse the miles if you cancel your subscription before 90 days, so you will need to use one additional week at $3.75.

So, for the total cost of $8.75, you can buy 1,300 miles to help pad your Alaska Airlines account. If you need a lot more miles, consider picking up an Alaska Airlines credit card (or more – they are quite accepting to those who wish to apply again and again for their cards!)

  • AA miles available at $8.75 for 1,500 miles. Same T&C. Good deal if you can remember to cancel. I set a google alert.

      • Hey there, checked out this offer as I love Alaska. Seems the price per mile is a bit higher though. The terms say that after the first 12 weeks you will be charged in advance of a 4 week period for 15$.

        * About Your Order
        “After the first twelve weeks, all subscriptions will automatically renew and your credit card or PayPal account will be charged in advance of each four-week billing period unless canceled. “
