Is there any way to use 10k alaska miles? I don't want to transfer SPG and didn't have anything in my elevate account, and I don't plan on opening an Alaska cc?
I found a $300 flight for 5k miles.

So what you are saying is that it is not a no brainer, as it depends on what you are looking for, but in general the points are more beneficial?

Unless you have a particular flight you're going to book that's under $100, the points are a no-brainer.

In your case, if you want to buy that $69 flight, of course go for the $100.

the new round appears to be for children accounts that have to be called in by a parent to activate

I think I just linked accounts.
If they don't show up by tomorrow, I need to call?

And if spouse doesn't have VX, it's too late to sign up to be eligible?

I got some emails today saying that the offer (to choose between $100 or 10K) is available until Feb 28.

Probably for kids, which you need to call in

I still haven't opened an Alaska account, and haven't received an email. What's the recommended practice?
