Stupid question probably: When I sign up for mileage accounts with airlines, am I supposed to add all my other airlines membership numbers and then go back to my existing memberships and add the new membership I just got? If yes, why? For example, I just signed up for Alaska - should I be putting in my Virgin America account info and then go to Virgin America and do the same?

Rep decided to just give me 5k even though my account didn't meet the "activity requirement"

Call back tell them they gave you 5k when the email said 10k

BUMP
Oy! please don't bump this...
I think this is when you take an Alaska flight and you wish to credit to miles to any of these programs, you can have it on your profile

Is it better to choose the $100 off or the 10,000 miles bonus ? I do have 10-15k miles in virgin already .

10,000 is definitely the better option.

needed to book an AS reservation, so I gave up on getting an email and opened an account, then tried to transfer, and got an error message that my "There is a problem connecting your account. Please contact our Customer Care team." Is there a waiting period?

I have 5 Virgin accounts.  I accepted the 10K on my real account because the miles will accumulate on that account.  As far as the others, does it make sense to take the $100 instead because I can definitely use it for a very cheap flight, but if I take 10K, it's hard because most awards start at 12.5K, and the miles will never accumulate.  On the other hand, even if I take miles, I can use 10K for a 50% discount of $100 on a paid flight.  Anyone have any insight?

if they are all on your name maybe take the 10k and later combine the accounts
another thing is there are awards from 5k
