Alaska Airlines has re-introduced their online shopping portal – Mileage Plan Shopping. This is a great way to rack up Alaska Airlines miles, for online shopping that you would normally do. Just log into the portal, and start shopping. Most of the famous retailers are available at the portal, such as Home Depot, Nordstrom’s, Groupon, and much much more… This is a great way to double dip on mileage, and if you have the Alaska Airlines VISA card, it’s even better, because you get more miles. Currently they are running a ‘grand opening’ promo, in which you get 250 miles for signing up for their emails, and then an additional 500 for your first purchase from the mall, for a whopping 750 miles!! I know..I know..that’s not a lot, but consider this –those free miles, could also save your existing miles, if they are about to expire. Also, the holiday season will creep on us soon, so this is a great way to do your gift shopping, and score something for yourself!
