You’ll Earn Alaska Airlines Miles Based on the Kind of Ticket You Bought

The miles you earn will also count toward Alaska Airlines elite status!

We don’t yet know when we’ll be able to redeem Alaska Airlines miles for Singapore Airlines flights, or Singapore Airlines miles for Alaska Airlines flights.  And because Alaska Airlines hasn’t released any redemption rates for Singapore Airlines flights, we don’t know how great of a deal this will be.  But more options for using miles & points is always a good thing!

You can only transfer Starwood points to Alaska Airlines.  But you can transfer points from all 4 flexible points programs to Singapore Airlines!  So eventually, you should be able to indirectly use Chase Ultimate Rewards, AMEX Membership Rewards, Citi ThankYou, AND Starwood points for flights on Alaska Airlines by transferring them to Singapore Airlines.

As One Mile at a Time points out, you will likely NOT be able to redeem Alaska Airlines miles towards  long Business or First Class flights.  But you never know, so keep your fingers crossed!

When the ability to use Singapore miles on Alaska flights does happen (soon?), do you know if they will be able to be used on Virgin/Alaska flights? I am eyeing a Virgin/Alaska flight to Hawaii from the West Coast which would appear from the latest chart to be only 12,000. Thanks.

This is Good News. I’m a huge fan of Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan’s versatility. Unfortunate we lost Delta as a partner (handy for Hawaii). But would love to see Singapore Airlines become a full-fledged Redemption Partner. Never flown Singapore Airlines, but everyone I’ve ever known who has considers is a World Class operation.
