Quick Thoughts

This is a nice deal if you’ll be booking a flight on Alaska Airlines. Note that this deal is targeted — I didn’t see it on any of my cards, but Stephen had it on one of his.

It is worth noting that unlike with many other offers, this one stipulates that you need to spend $300 or more in a single purchase. We often find that Amex Offers work with cumulative purchases, but it appears that is not the case with this offer.

I saw this on my offers a few days ago and now it’s gone 🙁
Anyone know if AMEX does a limited number of claims for some offers?

For multiple reasons (my booking may not hit $300, or I want to utilize this offer on multiple cards while my single booking is worth $600 or more) is there a good way to park these funds as Alaska Credits and use them for booking later – like booking a Main class ticket and then cancelling it for Alaska credits?
Do they expire? Can they be applied across multiple bookings?

I know that Alaska GCs (from retail purchase) allow you to (1) Use the value across multiple bookings and (2) lets you specify exactly how much you want to apply from the balance – if you want to leave a few dollars to pay by Alaska CC for free baggage or using a CSR for travel insurance coverage. Are refunded travel credits treated the same way?


No, you have to use the entire balance of your wallet for any new purchase. In theory Alaska wallet credit “expires” but you can always change the expiration date. You can just buy a ticket with wallet credit, wait 24 hours, cancel it and send it to your wallet, and the new wallet balance expires 1 year from the date you do that.

Also, if you have the patience, you can adjust your wallet balance downwards easily. If you have 1000 in your wallet and want to spend 600 on a ticket and 10 on a credit card, just buy a ticket for 400, then buy your actual ticket using your entire wallet balance of 600, then cancel that 400 ticket and send it back to your wallet.


Thanks! Nice for those of us in the PNW. I found it on both Amex Platinum and Amex Everyday.


I wish I got it on the plat :((( it only shows up for my non bonus earning cards

I got it on my AMEX Aspire and will easily use this. I travel from SAN-HNL twice a year for meetings and always fly the Alaska non stop.
