Best Credit Cards For Alaska Airline Miles
Enter your spend across multiple categories and get a list of the best credit cards for earning Alaska Airlines Miles. Includes transfer partners.
None of the major bank rewards programs allow you to transfer points directly to the Alaska Airlines MileagePlan program. This means that the best method for earning Alaska Miles will be by using Alaska Airlines Credit Cards.
Other programs that transfer to Alaska Airlines will not give you too much help when it comes to building up your miles. At most, these programs can help you top off your account a few thousand points.
If you're looking to earn Alaska Miles beyond using their credit cards, you'll want to consider spending with Alaska's travel partners. Particularly, you'll want to put heavy focus on the Alaska Mileage Plan Dining program and Alaska Mileage Plan Shopping portal.
