    Reader Robert emailed me to ask when Alaska will likely next offer a bonus on the purchase of miles. As y'all know, I'm a big fan of Alaska's Mileage Plan program, given that they have unique airline partners and allow stopovers on one-way awards. They're especially useful for award travel on Emirates, as Alaska is the only US airline which has a reciprocal frequent flyer agreement with Emirates. And I do love Emirates first class... As I've explained before, Alaska Mileage Plan typically offers bonuses on purchased miles four times per year, and they vary from 35-40%. With these bonuses, the cost per purchased mile varies from ~2.11 to ~2.19 cents per mile.
