Alaska Airlines recently completed their merger with Virgin America. Apparently as part of the merger (or possibly as a mistake), they have deposited 10,000 miles into many member accounts. While neither my wife nor I have received any miles (BOO!), several readers have reported in the Miles to Memories Facebook group that they have received them.
Apparently the miles are coded as follows:
SPECIAL SERVICES ELEVATE MEMBER OTO 10K BONUS
I have seen enough reports of this bonus posting to believe it is fairly widespread, however there are some people including myself who haven’t received it. The use of the term “Elevate Member” certainly refers to Virgin America’s loyalty program. At the very least it is probably worth checking your account to see if it has posted.
Did you receive this 10K bonus? If so, do you have any idea what triggered it?
