Year-end #MileageRunner

Now is the time travelers call me looking for a cheap flight to top off their Alaska Airlines mileage plan…in order to make “MVP” status or “MVP Gold.” Most folks who are close to the “MVPGold75K” status, frankly, know the program better than I do!

Just to review, you have to fly 20,000 miles on Alaska Air to reach MVP, or 40,000 to hit MVP Gold. And yes, it’s 75,000 miles to get to MVP Gold 75K. You can fly partner airlines like American, British, Qantas and such…but those miles don’t count as much.

Below, I’ve listed some of my favorite city pairs, along with the miles you’ll earn.
