How to earn Alaska Airlines miles? I don’t want to buy them, just want to earn for the ticket.

You can earn Alaska Airlines miles flying on Alaska Airlines and its airline partners, with non-airline partners or earning miles on all purchases with Alaska Airlines credit cards. These cards come with 3x miles for every $1 spent on eligible Alaska and 1 mile on all other purchases. As you see, to earn more miles you should fly Alaska Airlines a lot. Note, that miles expire in 24 months.

However, you can consider applying for a travel rewards credit card. For example, the Discover it® Miles can be a good option for you. There are no annual fees and no foreign transaction fees. Earn unlimited 1.5 miles on all purchases. All miles you’ve earned will be matched at the end of your first year (provided you are a new cardmember). This means, if you earn 30,000 miles, you will get 60,000 miles. Miles do not expire and can be redeemed with any airline including Alaska Airlines, provided a ticket is bought with the Discover it Miles card.
