Alaska Mileage Plan
The Alaska Mileage Plan online shopping mall closed its doors earlier this year and there were rumors that the airline was in negotiations with a new vendor, but it doesn’t look like Mileage Plan members will be able to earn miles for holiday shopping this year. An Alaska Airlines spokesperson explained to milepoint members wanting to know when the new shopping mall would launch that, “It looks like contract discussions were halted indefinitely, but Mileage Plan is actively looking for options. Basically … it’s going to be a while.”
