You may recall that back in May we were the first to bring you the details of the new Groupon and Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan partnership. Well there is even better news now if you haven’t taken advantage of it yet as Groupon has now doubled the new customer first purchase bonus to 1,000 miles from 500!
earn rates are great with the direct partnership. New Groupon customers
will now receive 1,000 miles on their first eligible purchase of over $30
while existing customers will continue to earn 4 miles/dollar on eligible Groupon
purchases. That’s right 4 miles per dollar! That is a really good earn
rate, especially if buying a large ticket getaway! Compare this to 3
miles per dollar via the Mileage Plan online shopping mall and you can
see why you want to go direct.

save some money on local deals and even travel purchases and now you can
earn more miles for doing so! Will you start earning Mileage Plan miles
on your Groupon purchases?
