[Expired] Alaska Airlines Shopping Portal Offering 50x Miles Per Dollar On Magazines.com

This deal has expired. They are now only offering 15x miles per $1 spent.

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • The Alaska Airlines shopping portal is currently offering 50 miles per $1 spent on Magazines.com purchases

The Fine Print

  • Orders cancelled within 90 days are not eligible. Not eligible on gift card, certificates or any other similar cash equivalents.

Our Verdict

Unfortunately it looks like using a gift card will invalidate earning the miles (you can get second hand gift cards for 30% off, that would have made this deal amazing). This basically lets you purchase miles at 2¢ (actually a little less after you factor in the credit card rewards points) and get some free magazines (just remember to cancel). Personally I don’t think purchasing miles at 2¢ is a good use of your money, but everybody is in a different situation.

Hat tip to Running With Miles

    There’s no mentioning that you can’t earn miles when redeeming gift card in the terms.

  2. Matt says:

    I think the gift card restriction is referring to buying gift cards, not using them. I could be wrong though.

    This is great for magazine you would actually want to read, like “The Week”.

  5. Benjamin says:

    Figure you could probably donate the magazines to charitable organizations and claim the tax deduction? Or give to places that you frequently have to wait [doctor’s offices, hair stylists, etc.] as a nicety? Or to friends and family as nice thinking-of-you gifts? Just some thoughts, if the magazines are any good.

    it’s a great deal if you actually want the magazine

    Caveat Emptor. I went to order Time magazine but there is an “auto-renewal” option that is turned on by default. So if you don’t figure out how to cancel it afterwards you will be auto-renewed at a much higher rate. I decided it wasn’t worth the hassle for 500 miles.
