Alaska and Virgin America are merging, and as part of it, Alaska is offering new Mileage Plan members a quick 5,000 miles.

To earn them, join Mileage Plan™ before April 30, 2017, and complete your first flight on Alaska Airlines or Virgin America by September 30, 2017.

There’s no cost to join, so even if you’re not sure you’re going to fly Alaska or Virgin by September, it’s worth locking in the deal.

You can fly for as few as 5,000 miles on any Alaska route within the lower 48 that’s 700 miles or less in distance, like…

San Francisco to Seattle  


Seattle to Salt Lake City


Seattle to Reno


San Francisco to Portland


Alaska still awards miles based on how far you fly, not how much your ticket costs. So if you’re frustrated with the way American, Delta, and United don’t given as many miles on cheap tickets, it’s a great time to give Alaska a try.

Remember that you can earn Alaska miles when you fly its partner American Airlines.
