Alaskan Miles: its value and use
« on: January 14, 2014, 11:23:49 PM »
The Alaskan CC thread talks mainly about the credit card itself. How about opening a new thread on the value and use of the miles. What do you think?
I will start...what partner airlines work with Alaska? Are they easy to transfer?

They seem to have great partner Asian airlines. Shouldn't this be a great program for those that travel to Asia?

And yes, it is a very good program.

Does this link go to that bow tie guy site? Why is he wearing that tie? I need to know that before I can even concentrate on uses for 50k Alaska miles.

He's a cultured young man, and therefore, he wears a bowtie.
You'd look good in a bowtie as well.

No, I prefer an ascot. I always put on an ascot (and smoke a pipe) when I'm at my computer.
