Some news was released that you can transfer miles from your ELEVATE account to your Alaska Air mileage plan at a rate of 1:1.3 which is AMAZING!

My measly 1410 miles at elevate turned into 1833 at Alaska which is super beneficial since I have much more on my Alaskan account. 

BUT WAIT…THERE’S MORE (buy one today and receive your second one…HAHA, just kidding) Today I received an email stating that you can actually LINK your account with an additional benefit of 10,000 miles or $100 dollars off your next Alaska operated flight!

AT FIRST I was thinking this meant I could only take advantage of the offer if I hadn’t had an Alaska airlines account until I read this…

Considering me being so computer savvy & having to work my way through this I figured i’d send out a blog! Also who’s to say you haven’t checked your email today?! 🙂

THAT BEING SAID…IF YOU ALREADY HAVE AN ALASKAN ACCOUNT 

Here’s the HOW TO on linking them!

  •  Log in to my Mileage Plan account. If you chose to link an existing account, Alaska will automatically deposit the 10,000 miles in your account — you won’t have a chance to opt for the $100 discount.

  • Once logged in, my Virgin America Elevate account information populated. I made sure to check the Yes, link my accounts option and then go on to select continue.
  • After you click continue you will get a notification of information received &  another email stating it was processed. Remember it wont show your 10k miles right away, be patient.

Keep in mind they are BOMBARDED right now and it did take me a couple tries for it to go through!
Don’t give up!

LAST BUT NOT LEAST

TRANSFERRING MILES!

I mentioned earlier that the first bit of news was transferring your miles at a 1:1.3 ratio

HERE’S HOW! 

First head on over to this link

  • Once you log in, you’ll be able to select the option of transferring to Mileage Plan.
  • You will then need to register both of your accounts before your first transfer.

  • Right after completing the transfer, I got an email saying that it was being processed.

I hope this helps you or perhaps informs you of a nice little travel surprise in your email and if you’re not a member of either of these NOW YOU KNOW why the right place at the right time can really pay off!

Happy Traveling and Thanks for reading!
