If you haven’t installed the Google Chrome extension for the Alaska Shopping portal yet, for the next week you can get a 250 mile bonus when you spend $50 in the portal.
250 miles won’t get you very far, but deals like this are useful to extend the expiration date of your miles. Alaska Mileage Plan miles expire with 24 months of no activity, so this would qualify as a mile earning activity to keep your account active.
The button lets you know when to activate and earn miles per dollar as you shop online at participating stores. To get the 250 mile bonus you need to install the button (for the first time), make a $50 purchase, and then keep it installed for 30 days.
Here are the Terms and Conditions:
During the “October 2019 Button Install Bonus” campaign, which runs from 10/12/19 through 10/18/19 at 11:59:59 pm ET (the “Bonus Period”), Members will earn a one-time bonus of 250 Mileage PlanTM bonus miles when they successfully install the Mileage PlanTM Shopping button (browser requirements detailed on button page) and use the button to spend $50 or more in qualifying purchases during the Bonus Period. To qualify, members must also keep the button installed for a minimum of 30 days after the end of the Bonus Period and must not have installed the button previously before the Bonus Period. The Bonus Miles are in addition to the standard Mileage PlanTM miles earned from shopping online through the Mileage PlanTM Shopping mall. “Qualifying purchases” do not include returns, cancellations, shipping and handling, taxes, gift card or other cash equivalent purchases, and certain products that are not eligible for bonus miles. Please see the Mileage PlanTM Shopping site for details on product eligibility and other restrictions. Please allow up to 10 weeks after the Bonus Period for bonus miles to post to your Mileage PlanTM account. Limit one bonus redemption per member. Void where prohibited by law. Subject to Mileage PlanTM
The Wrap Up:
Alaska Mileage Plan Shopping is again offering a 250 mile bonus for installing the browser extension button, and spending $50 between now and 10/18. This is a nice simple bonus for anyone that hasn’t done it before, or if you need some account activity to keep your miles active.
