The Alaska MileagePlan shopping portal is offering 10 miles per dollar spent at Raise.com. This is likely to only be available today (6/17/19). Keep in mind that you are not eligible to earn Alaska miles on Raise purchases once you surpass a $10,000 lifetime transaction maximum with Raise. If you haven’t yet reached that threshold, this is a really nice return. You can also stack this with Alaska’s summer portal promotion to spend $200 through the portal and earn a bonus 500 miles (meaning that a $200 purchase through Raise would net you a total of 2,500 Alaska miles).

This is a great deal if you’re eligible — I can’t remember ever having seen a mileage payout this high on Raise.com purchases. We did see a 20% cash back deal through TopCashBack last month for one day, but apart from that I can’t think of a more valuable Raise payout in recent memory. Indeed, the 15-month history at CashBackMonitor.com supports that.
Alaska miles are particularly valuable in that Alaska offers very competitive award pricing to many regions and allows a stopover on a one-way award ticket. Domestic awards within the US start as low as 5K miles one-way, but some of the better deals include 70K one-way in Japan Airlines first class to Asia or 55K one-way to Australia in business class on Fiji Airways or Qantas. I wouldn’t speculatively buy discounted gift cards from Raise just to earn the miles, but I’d certainly consider buying gift cards today rather than tomorrow if I had a use in mind.
Speaking of that, I generally suggest only buying second-hand gift cards through services like Raise when you have a near-immediate plan to use them. While I’ve had good experiences with Raise (and indeed with most secondhand gift card sites), there is the risk of it getting drained if you let it sit unused. If you know you will use the gift card, this can be a great way to stack a bundle of miles on top of cash savings.
