Bonus Alaska Airlines Miles For Shopping At Carrs Safeway

I never knew about this until I moved to Alaska, but you can earn Alaska Air miles just by shopping at Carrs Safeway. I grew up shopping at Safeway in Washington, then when I moved to Alaska I learned that anyone who lives in Alaska can earn free Alaska Air miles just by shopping at Carrs.

I do not expect too much from this offer, but over time I know these miles will add up, plus they are free airline miles. Here is the deal:

  • You have to live in Alaska.
  • You have to shop at Carrs Safeway.
  • You have to be an Alaska Airlines member.
  • You have to be a Carrs Safeway member.
  • You have to register for this offer here.

For every $250 you spend at Carrs Safeway, you will earn 125 free Alaska Airlines miles. As soon as you link up your Carrs Safeway rewards card to your Alaska Airlines account you will receive a bonus of 500 miles. If you do not see the bonus miles, then call or email Alaska Air and tell them about it. I had to, but got my free 500 bonus miles.

Sometimes they offer double miles promotions, the last one I know of was towards the end of 2011, I am not sure if they do the double miles promo yearly or if that was just a random bonus. With the double bonus miles, essentially you would earn 1 mile per $1 spent, without the bonus period its 1 mile per $2 spent.

You can find out all of the details, sign up for an Alaska Airlines account and Carrs Safeway account by clicking here.

I use this deal because its free and there’s nothing I like more than free airline miles! Right now my wife and I average about 500-625 free Alaska Airlines miles just by shopping at Carrs Safeway. This doesn’t include the number of miles I already earn just by putting all of our transactions on our rewards credit cards. In a years’ time we expect to earn 6,000-7,500 free airline miles without doing anything we would normally do.

About Derek

I currently live in beautiful Alaska with my wife! Living in Alaska i have learned that it cost so much more just to travel anywhere! In order to fly anywhere it cost us an extra $250+ a ticket.

    Hi Derek,  I don’t live in Alaska, but I am amazed at your level of knowledge and ability to find these deals.

       Well I never knew about it until one day shopping at the local Carrs Safeway and on my receipt was an offer for bonus miles for linking my Safeway card to my Alaska Airlines account. So just Googled it and found how to link my Safeway card to my Alaska Airlines account and from then on I started earning miles.. simple really 😉

        Well I was inspired by your site and recently cashed in my flyer miles for a round trip to Europe – I only needed to pay the tax A mere $128 . pretty good huh?

        • ThePointsGuide

          For a trip to Europe.. that’s sweet! You’ll always have to pay the taxes but its basically a free trip. I usually find out how much the ticket would have cost me. For instance, I just got 4 family members tickets to Anchorage from Seattle, cost 100,000 total miles, would have cost $2,505.. cost me $20 ($5/ticket)

          • AllThingsPondered

            certainly hard to beat $5 per ticket – well done. Do you ever purchase miles or do you just rack them up the ‘old-fashioned’ way?
            Is it sometimes advantageous to buy miles?

          • ThePointsGuide

            I never ‘purchase’ miles directly from the airline. I have purchased flights recently because the reward in gaining miles vs spending miles made more sense. Some flights from Alaska cost 50k+ miles and I find that hard to spend on an economy seat.
