MyTravelNews: Alaska Airlines award sale

Alaska is running a sale (through tomorrow 4/18) on award flights. Just select the drop-down menu for your home airport and see what’s available. Some one-way flights are available for as low as 5,000 miles.

Alaska miles are worth about 1.5 cents apiece, so a 5,000 mile one-way flight is the equivalent of $75. If it’s cheaper than that to buy the flight, don’t use your miles.

Remember my travel-hacking mantra: Use your damn miles. They get less valuable with time.
