About Mileage Plan

Benefits - Mileage Plan Membership

Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ membership is free, and you can start earning your way toward benefits, like worldwide award travel, right away. Join Mileage Plan™ today.

Earn Miles and Reap the Rewards

With Mileage Plan™, you'll earn miles every time you fly Alaska Airlines or any one of our airline partners. But flying isn't the only way to earn miles. By taking advantage of our numerous partnerships you'll find hundreds of ways to earn miles without stepping foot on an airplane. Even things you normally do, like eating out, ordering flowers, or shopping.

Apply for an Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® credit card and you'll receive 25,000 Bonus Miles upon approval. That alone is enough for a Coach Award** ticket within the U.S. and Canada.

Redeem Miles for Award Travel

Once you've earned the miles, you'll have your choice from a full suite of award options to use them. When your award travel is solely on Alaska Airlines, you have multiple award levels to choose from - giving you flexibility when and where you need it, or combine Miles and Money for a discount off of a purchased ticket ... and you'll even earn miles when traveling on it.

Plus, you can redeem miles with any of our airline partners for trips to anywhere they fly — whether it be Naples, Florida or Naples, Italy.

Stay Up-to-Date With Your Account

When you join Mileage Plan™, we'll automatically create a My Account profile for you. You can use it to keep your travel preferences up-to-date, so that the next time you book your travel at we'll already know whether you want a window or aisle seat.

You can also use My Account to keep track of your Mileage Plan activity any time, any place. We'll also email your Mileage Plan™ activity statement to you every month if you want. Our convenient E-Statements also contain immediate access to special offers from Alaska Airlines, and our Mileage Plan partners.

You can subscribe to e-Statements when you join Mileage Plan™, or if you are already a member, click here to subscribe.

Earn Special Elite Privileges

Spend enough time flying with us (or select airline partners) and you can qualify for elite status. As an MVP®, MVP® Gold, or Gold 75K member you can enjoy great benefits, special treatment, and even bonus miles on every flight. You'll find a whole range of benefits that make it well worth the effort.

Keep Your Account Active* and Your Miles Won't Expire

As long as you keep your account active* — that is, as long as you earn or spend at least one mile every 24 months you'll keep all the miles that you earn. Spend them as soon as you have enough for a one-way domestic ticket, or save up for a First Class ticket to a far-flung destination. It doesn't matter how long it takes you to accrue miles, they'll be there when you're ready to use them.


* If no mileage is credited to your account during the first 9 months after opening, or if your account is inactive for longer than 2 years, the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ reserves the right to delete your account and reassign the number. If mileage has been deleted from your account, you can reinstate it for up to one year by paying a $75 fee.

**Award seats are limited and may not be available on all flights. Passenger is responsible for the following taxes and fees on award travel: September 11th U.S. Security Fee of $2.50 per enplanement. Taxes and fees of up to $180 apply to international travel .
