As with most airlines and hotels facing cash crunch one of the easy way to raise cash is by selling miles/points at a discounted price. On that note Alaska Airlines is currently offering certain member's ability to purchase miles with additional "up to 60% bonus" miles based on the amount of points purchased.
Alaska Airlines partners with many airlines including best in class such as Emirates, Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific. So if you have any planned trip for which you can find award space then it may be a good deal to top up or buy Alaska Airlines miles for this trip. To see what is your targeted bonus you need to use your Mileage Plan details and check here.
So, if you purchase 40,000 miles you will receive bonus miles of 24,000; so for a total cost of $1,100 you will receive 64,000 miles. For 62,500 miles you can travel one way to/from South Asia to Contiguous U.S. /Alaska in Cathay Pacific Business class! You can look up the award chart for different airlines here by selecting your region of travel.
Below are the published terms for the bonus miles promo:
Purchase miles only if you have trip planned in near/distant future as speculative buying may not be the best bet at this time.
