The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Alaska Airlines is offering 500 bonus miles when you spend $200 or more through the Alaska Airlines shopping portal between 5/9 and 5/16

The Fine Print

  • During the “Treat Yourself Bonus” campaign, which runs from 05/09/18 through 05/16/18 at 11:59:59 pm ET (the “Bonus Period”), Member will receive a one-time bonus of 500 Mileage Plan TM  bonus miles on cumulative qualifying purchases made through the Mileage Plan TM  Shopping mall or from purchases made through Mileage Plan TM  Shopping in-store offers. This one-time bonus award will be determined based on Member’s cumulative qualifying purchases made during the Bonus Period:  Earn 500 miles for qualifying purchases of at least $200 or more. All other terms apply. Void where prohibited by law.
  • “Qualifying purchases” do not include returns, cancellations, shipping and handling, taxes, gift card or other cash equivalent purchases, and certain products that are not eligible for bonus miles.  Please see the Mileage Plan TM Shopping site for details on product eligibility and other restrictions. Please allow 8-10 weeks after the Bonus Period for bonus miles to post to your Mileage Plan TM  Shopping account.

Our Verdict

Basically an additional 2.5x miles per $1 spent if you spend exactly $200. As always make sure you compare to other portals using something like cashbackmonitor to ensure you’re getting a good deal. American Airlines also has the same deal but for only 400 miles instead of 500.

hm. not bad as long as u use a good CC + normal AS portal rate + 2.5x AS bonus miles. pretty solid for $200. sux walmart only at 1x AS portal.

Doc, you forgot about the – Earn 100 extra bonus miles when you spend $50 at one or both featured stores (Macys / Kohls) – If the vendors work for you, then its double dip.

**During the “Featured Store Bonus” campaign which runs from 05/09/18 through 05/16/18 at 11:59:59 pm ET (the “Bonus Period”), Member will earn 100 Mileage PlanTM bonus miles on cumulative qualifying purchases of at least $50 or more at one or all of the designated “Featured Stores”: Macy’s, Kohl’s. Member is eligible for one bonus payout of 100 Mileage PlanTM bonus miles per designated “Featured Store.” All other terms apply. Void where prohibited by law.**

Meh. The merchants can reverse the points after the fact for no good reason, and Alaska won’t do a thing about it. I’m still fighting my Economist bonus clawback through Alaska shopping portal, with likely no postiive outcome, despite clear evidence of meeting requirements, and of course no outlet like CFPB. I’m done with all these portals. Buyer beware.

well what did u do with the economist sub? did u cancel it? what were the terms?

I had an issue with Alaska on miles for a purchase on eBags. At stake were 3500 or so miles. After a back and forth I sent the following and got the miles.

“Due to a lack of action on your part, I have prepared a formal complaint to be sent to the California Department of Justice Attorney General Office Public Inquiry Unit within the week. The complaint will outline the above issue and request consumer protection services as a resident of California. Of course, I will be submitting a detailed complaint to the Better Business Bureau as well.”

You need to find out the unit/division in your state that accepts consumer complaints against a business.
