AS giving 10k points to all VX members
« on: January 09, 2017, 03:09:19 PM »
I had seen reports over the last day or two of people getting 10k points added to their AS accounts and thought that I just wasn't targeted, but according the TPG everyone who has a VX account that was active as of December 5th will be getting the points, they've just been a little slow rolling it out to everyone. If you you don't yet have an AS account but have a VX account, they may have made you an account and sent you an email with a link to get 10k bonus points for signing up so check your email.

Is it better to wait for email before creating Alaska account to guarantee 10k bonus?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

I didn't get an email but on December 19th I got an email from them that said "On January 9, 2017, you will receive an invitation from Alaska Airlines to activate a new Mileage PlanTM account."

I guess according to their website they will be sending it out the week of the 9th.

"Beginning the week of January 9, 2017, we will invite you to enroll in Alaska's award-winning Mileage Plan, enabling access to book award travel on Alaska Airlines and Alaska Global Partners network to over 900 worldwide destinations. Plus, you'll receive more detail on how you can convert your Elevate points to Alaska Mileage Plan miles at a rate of 1.3 Mileage Plan miles per Elevate point. And for elite-level Elevate members, Alaska Mileage Plan will automatically match your elite status!"
