Purchase Mileage Plan Miles between 15 May 2017 and 01 July 2017 and get up to 50% more! As a quick reminder, Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Miles are great for usage on Japan Airlines and Cathay Pacific even intra-Asia where a flight will cost only 25,000 and 22,500 miles respectively. I have mentioned previously how it is possible to travel from within Asia in Business Cabin of Japan Airlines for just 25,000 miles (with a complimentary stopover in Tokyo).
The amount of bonus Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Miles you get with this promotion varies depending on the amount you purchase - in order to get the maximum offer of 50%, you should purchase at least 40,000 Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Miles (which will give you 60,000). The maximum number of Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Miles you may purchase in one transaction is 60,000 and this will give you 90,000 Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Miles after including the 50% bonus:
- 10,000 – 19,000 = 20% bonus
- 20,000 – 39,000 = 35% bonus
- 40,000 – 60,000 = 50% bonus
Each block of 1,000 Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Miles is priced at US$27.50 (S$38.50) and there is a 7.5% Tax Recovery Fee which is applicable - this increases the approximate price to US$29.57 (S$41.30). With that being said, this 50% bonus is still a great promotion and it is a step up from the previous 40% promotions that were running. If you are thinking about checking out Japan Airlines' latest SKY SUITE III will cost you only around US$493 (S$689) one way (remember you get a free stopover in Tokyo too where you can spend the weekend in Tokyo Disneyland or at the Conrad Tokyo).
The best number of miles to purchase in order to take advantage of this 50% bonus miles promotion truly depends on your travel plans and the number of companions. While the purchase of a minimum of 40,000 Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Miles is generally required, it is worth looking into whether breaking it down into multiple transactions make sense. For example, if you require 120,000 Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Miles altogether, it makes more sense to buy 40,000 Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Miles (which gives 60,000) twice instead of purchasing 60,000 Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Miles (which gives 90,000) and then purchasing another 23,000 Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Miles (which gives only 31,050 since only a 35% bonus is applicable).
United Airlines is currently offering up to 60% more miles when you purchase United Airlines MileagePlus Miles before 22 January 2018. While there was previously the opportunity to receive up to 100% more miles, the minimum number of miles required in order to trigger the highest bonus is significantly lesser this time - 30,000 miles versus 70,000 miles.

It is important to check whether your account has been targeted with the 100% bonus (it has been for mine) and stacking this expense with the right credit card can present a double-dipping opportunity.

The Citi Rewards Card is one of the best credit cards in Singapore to hold in my opinion - it offers 4 miles per dollar on shopping expenses (this includes spend in departmental stores as well) and from time to time it partners up with a merchant to offer 20X Rewards which is equivalent to a whooping 8 miles per S$1. From now until the end of 31 December 2017, cardholders will be able to earn 8 miles per dollar on all eligible transactions made on Lazada or via the Amazon Prime Now App.
Singapore Airlines will soon allow KrisFlyer members to redeem their KrisFlyer miles for award tickets on Star Alliance and other partners on singaporeair.com or via their mobile applicable from 07 December 2017.

A couple of months ago, I wrote about the opportunity to purchase United MileagePlus Miles with a 100% Bonus. In case you have missed out on that, United MileagePlus is currently offering up to 100% Bonus on purchased miles. Depending on your purchase and flight history with United Airlines, the bonus may be lower than 100%. While traveling on United Airlines may not be the most enticing way to travel for most people, using these United MileagePlus Miles are a great way to get from Singapore to Australia in a premium cabin.
