I just got my Alaska Airlines credit card and would like to use it to book my flight to Hawaii. A few questions. 1) I will use my points to get 2 free tickets and use the companion ticket to buy 2 tickets. Is it correct to use the points for the 2 tickets for my children and to spend full price on my ticket and the $99 ticket for my wife in order to add miles to my account? Is that the best way? 2) Can the $99 companion ticket be used to book a flight via the Alaska site on an American flight? Thanks!
