    As said above, I've seen some great Flights on Alaska. Missing are 15k Alaska Miles.
    Is there any Idea, how to get them the cheapes way possible?

    For the current 40% bonus buy mile promotion, you can buy 15k miles for about $3190.

    Of course you can get part of that by credit cards, like BoA AS credit card, or Amex SPG credit card.

    I think your math is off. :oops:

    For 15k miles @Blue2 would need to spend $357.50 to get 13,000 Miles plus the bonus 2,600 (15,600 total).

    Definitely not $3,190 for 15K miles. :eek::D

    The 40% bonus is definitely the way to go and after taxes it costs $384.31 (if you're Canadian then add the GST/HST).

    Oops. You are right, I cannot count. I was thinking 150k instead of 15k :(

    The Alaska airline shopping portal (cartera) is currently offering 3x miles on American Express Gift Cards. You can then use to buy VR or Visa gift cards at CVS. 1 $5k order will get you 15k miles. Use code FPVALAF to waive the purchase fees. Shipping and handling is $8.95

    Hi, does using any code nullify getting the Alaska miles? Thank you.
