Joining American, United, Delta, and Southwest’s Back to School eShopping promotions, Alaska is now offering:

• Spend $125, Earn 300 bonus miles
Spend $350, Earn 1,000 bonus miles
It’s “only” 1,000 easy miles, but I value Alaska miles quite highly (even though I have never had the opportunity to fly Alaska’s own metal!) because of their generous award chart.
For one thing, you are allowed a stopover on a one-way award – something the legacy carriers have done away wth for the most part.
Interesting redemptions include Cathay Pacific from the US to Asia for 50,000 miles each way in Business / 70,000 in First, JAL for 60,000 miles each way in Business / 70,000 in First, and from the US to the South Pacific on Fiji in Business for 55,000 each way.
