[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.

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

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”.

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.
