As we approach the end of the year, and start to scramble around to make sure we are on track to re-qualify for elite status, it’s always nice when airlines offer double elite qualifying mile promotions. Alaska Airlines launched a double EQM promotion for select flights from Seattle from now through May 2014.
To get started you must first register for this offer before you take a qualifying flight. Once registered, you’ll earn double miles on Alaska Airlines flights from Seattle to Las Vegas (LAS), Los Angeles (LAX), Oakland (OAK), San Francisco (SFO), San Jose (SJC), or Santa Rosa (STS).
Offer Terms & Conditions:
- Registration is required prior to your first qualifying flight in order to receive Double Miles. Double Elite-Qualifying Miles offer is valid only on qualifying paid nonstop flights from October 22, 2013, through May 31, 2014, between Seattle and the following cities: Las Vegas (LAS), Los Angeles (LAX), Oakland (OAK), San Francisco (SFO), San Jose (SJC), or Santa Rosa (STS).
- Flights must be marketed and operated by Alaska Airlines. Flight miles must be credited to your Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ account in order to earn Double Elite-Qualifying Miles. All travel must be completed by May 31, 2014.
- Not valid on free or award travel. Double Elite-Qualifying Miles will count towards Mileage Plan™ Elite Status. Please allow four to six weeks for miles to be credited to your Mileage Plan™ account. All terms and conditions of the Mileage Plan™ program apply. Offer subject to change without notice.
I can’t help but think, Alaska came up with this promotion to follow in the footsteps of Delta, who recently announced a double miles promotion from Seattle as well. If you’re an Alaska flyer, and have upcoming travel plans to/from Seattle then be sure to register!
