After confirming your membership number you will be given the airline/hotel specific promo code. For e.g. below is what you would see for Alaska Airlines.
While on the surface the program looks interesting you might be better off getting discount using frequently provided Groupon promotions for 10% to 20% off using a promotion code. Also you can earn miles or cashback today by going through various cashback site. Using the special promo code for airline miles/hotel points would potentially invalidate the cashback earning through cashback sites. Still at times it might be useful to earn valuable miles with Alaska Airlines or American Airlines by using the promo code with this new Groupon feature.
So, remember this additional feature when you are looking to bank on useful miles and there are no other handy promotions available at that time.
