AS 10,000 Mile Bonus
Like many people in the comments I had not yet received my 10,000 bonus miles from Alaska. I do have good news, I just recieved an email from Alaska inviting me to joing Mileage Plan as an Elevate Member and a link to activate my account and get 10,000 miles. However at the bottom of the email it said:
Already a Mileage Plan member?
No need to activate a new Mileage Plan account if you already have one. Just let us know your existing account number here [Link Removed]. We’ll automatically deposit 10,000 bonus miles in your account.
I think there was a slight name mismatch and AS didn’t automatically pick it up. So now I linked the accounts and have an extra 10,000 AS miles. So if you had an Elevate Account you should still be able to manually link the accounts and get the miles.
I just got the same email too. Looking forward to 10K additional AS miles!
I completed the linking but I did not see 10,000 miles post. Do you know how long it takes?? All I see was that the linking has been processed, no mention of 10k miles like the email. Any help appreciated
Does anyone know if I’ll likely get the 10k bonus if I only created an Elevate account in late December (apparently 12/5 was the cutoff)? No emails received.
Should I hold off on linking the two accounts & hope for an email offer?
Just feel left out for being loyal to AS!

I don’t think it’s an immediate thing. Give it a day or two – at least an overnight to process. I couldn’t get the website to work for me and the AS Twitter reps had me DM my two numbers to them so we’ll see what happens.
