Delta Air Lines has been offering rollover Medallion Qualifying Miles for Medallion members, who reached their Medallion level, but not quite enough miles for the next level, or for any Diamond Medallion who excited that threshold. It turns out that Alaska Airlines wants to get in on this game, and has offered targeted MVP members rollover miles.

How does it work?

When you travel on Alaska Airlines flights in 2016, each elite-qualifying mile you earn on Alaska Airlines flights beyond the tier requirement for your highest elite status attained will roll over towards next year’s elite status requirement.

Terms and Conditions:
Only Mileage Plan™ members who receive this offer directly from Alaska Airlines via email are eligible to participate.The difference, if any, between the number of miles flown by an eligible member on flights operated and marketed by Alaska Airlines (AS1-999, 2000-2999 or 3300-3499) in 2016 and the number of miles required for the highest 2017 elite status level achieved by the eligible member as of December 31, 2016, will be applied towards 2018 elite status qualification.

Mileage for all segments accrued toward this promotion must be flown by December 31, 2016 and credited to your Mileage Plan account by January 15, 2017. Elite-qualifying miles will post to the member’s account no later than February, 2017. Award or free travel is not valid for this offer.

Bottom Line

I think its’s in an interesting strategy to make their rollover miles targeted, rather than for all MVP members. Report if you were targeted for this offer below!
