I believe this one is widely available, though a bunch of readers in the comments did not get this. Pretty nice deal for cash flights.

Does AS process their own gift cards or do they use cashstar?

By looking at the list on CasStar (https://www.cashstar.com/company/merchant-clients/full-client-list/), Alaska Air is not noted. This doesn’t necessarily mean that buying a gift card from their website will code as a regulator Alaska Air transaction.
Hopefully, someone will confirm based on past experience.

0/3. Wonder if those w/ gold or platinum getting the offer have Alaska selected as their airline for fee refund?

Don’t think so I selected SW 2018 & 2019 on Per Gold – but also mainly book tickets on CSR (but did book an AS flight recently – possibly on an a different Amex card to meet MSR – but 1W from home hub).

Offer on Per. Gold card

Got it on my Platinum card. My airline setup is American Airlines though. Would love to know if GCs work.

Got it on my Gold and Everyday cards. I sometimes get it on one card with statement credit and another card with bonus points. This time, both are $40 statement credit. To answer Derek, I have Southwest as my selection on my Gold card.

The offer is back with expiration 1/31/2020. I got it on my Hilton Surpass and Amex Gold, and another Amex Platinum AU and Gold AU got it this time. Last time, I used it on one of my other Platinum AUs.

Anyone have DP on whether this will work with a gift card? What about spending $200+ on a fully refundable flight several months out?
