Alaska Airlines has had a rough start to 2024, so it is looking to boost sales after having 20% of its fleet grounded for most of January.
This is good news for Mileage Plan members who are chasing elite status, as this latest promotion will earn 2x to 3x elite qualifying miles for flights in February — which can be quite lucrative.
Let’s take a look at the details.
Earn 2x to 3x EQMs
There is no registration necessary, but flights must be on Alaska Airlines or Horizon Air; partner airlines and saver fares (X class) are excluded.
All Mileage Plan members will automatically earn 2x EQMs in February, but Mileage Plan members who book fares with corporate rates will earn 3x EQMs!
This promotion could prove to be quite lucrative for corporate travelers.
Is This Promotion Worth It?
Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan is one of our favorite and most lucrative loyalty programs out there. So, being able to earn 2x or even 3x EQMs is easily is a big deal.
Having elite status with Alaska Airlines can unlock many travel benefits, both on Alaska and on partner airlines, including free checked bags, priority boarding, complimentary upgrades, and even access to Oneworld first class lounges.
To earn elite status with Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan, you need to earn:
- MVP: 20,000 EQMs
- MVP Gold: 40,000 EQMs
- MVP Gold 75K: 75,000 EQMs
- MVP Gold 100K: 100,000 EQMs
As you might imagine, reaching MVP Gold 100K can be difficult, so you wouldn’t want to miss the chance to double or triple your earnings.
This is a great promotion being offered by Alaska Airlines.
Mileage Plan members can earn 2x or even 3x elite qualifying miles in February with very few restrictions and no registration necessary.
With Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan elite status being so valuable, this could be a great opportunity for travelers to earn elite status quickly … or at least get a good jumpstart for the rest of the year!
