Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members can save up to 50% on select award redemptions booked in April 2024 with the Global Getaway promotion. This new recurring promotion will offer new deals every quarter.

First up, Global Getaways is offering discounts on partner award travel to select tropical destinations. Let’s dive into the details.

Alaska Airlines Global Getaways — Q2 2024

The new Global Getaways promotion from Alaska Airlines allows Mileage Plan members to save up to 50% on select international award redemptions. This new recurring promotion will offer new destinations and deals 4 times per year in which you can save on redeeming Alaska miles for flights.

“That once-in-a-lifetime trip is even closer with our quarterly Global Getaways promotion for discounted award travel to fabulous, far-flung locales. We’re continuing to invest in making Mileage Plan the most rewarding loyalty program with the industry’s most valuable currency.”

Brett Catlin, vice president of loyalty, alliances and sales at Alaska Airlines

For its first offering, Mileage Plan members can save on international partner awards to select tropical destinations booked between April 3 and April 30. These deals are good for travel in September and November of 2024.

Here’s a look one-way prices for the current Global Getaways promotion:

How to Earn Alaska Airlines MileagePlan Miles

Historically, Alaska Airlines MileagePlan miles have been relatively hard to earn since they couldn’t be transferred 1:1 from any major program. However, that changed when Bilt added Alaska as a 1:1 transfer partner in March. (You can also transfer Marriott Bonvoy points to Alaska Airlines, but only at a 3:1 ratio.)

So now, in addition to earning Alaska Airlines miles through flying, Alaska Airlines credit cards, Mileage Plan Shopping, Mileage Plan Dining, and transferring from Marriott, you can transfer Bilt points to Alaska Airlines.

Hot Tip:

Periodically, you’ll be able to buy Alaska miles at a discounted rate, and it could be well worth the price if you find it’s cheaper to redeem miles than pay the cash rate. Bookmark our monthly purchase point promotions guide so you know when the next sale comes around.

Final Thoughts

Alaska Airlines has a new promotion called Global Getaways that promises to offer new and exciting deals 4 times per year. The first set of deals features discounted award bookings on partner airlines to tropical destinations around the world, so take a look at the possibilities before the end of April!
