Earlier yesterday I received an email from Alaska Airlines’ shopping portal, promising a *mystery bonus* on hundreds of stores throughout the week. As everyone knows, any opportunity to earn a mile sends my heart racing, so I eagerly clicked through on the email to find out the secret.

Ok, it wasn’t that amazing. Still, it’s better than a sharp stick in the eye, and if you already had shopping planned, this is a good opportunity for you to earn a nice bonus on your spend. In addition to this, there are tons of stores with increased bonus miles on offer this week, so it’s worth taking a look.

The Details

  • These increased miles are good through 4/19/2019.
  • Over 850+ stores have increased earnings.
  • You can check your email for the mailer, otherwise click here to get to the offer page.
  • Make sure to maximize your rewards by using a card that earns rewards based on your spend. For everyday spend, you can use a card with a flat 2% cash back, like the Citi Double Cash, or if you happen to fall into the office store category, take advantage of the Chase Ink credit card for 5% back.
