Are you looking to leave your current loyalty program or are you planning on flying Alaska Airlines several times in the next year? Alaska is offering a one-time status match promotion (with some fine print that I’ll cover below). The best part? If you match now, you’ll receive the status through the end of 2019! I haven’t been able to find any information that says if and when this promotion is going to end, so act fast.
Alaska will match your status you hold with Aeromexico, Air Canada, American, Delta, Frontier, Hawaiian, JetBlue, Southwest, or United. To match your status, simply go to to https://www.alaskaairstatusmatch.com/, choose your program, and provide a screenshot of your current status and year to date miles flown.
This is a GREAT deal! It’s not very often that an airline (or any loyalty program for that matter) will match your status for an entire year. I have one final trip this year and plan to do it myself once the miles get annotated on my account. I’m flying Alaska a couple times early next year, so this is a perfect time to try out their program. Check back in a couple months and I’ll have a full review of my status match experience and my thoughts on flying with status on Alaska.
Terms and conditions (Directly from Alaska’s Website):
