Link to buy gift certicates

As of around June 2017, multiple reports indicate that gift certificates are no longer being reimbursed.

According to this thread in the Alaska forum the reimbursement of Alaska Club memberships is no longer a problem.

Just to add a data point for others: Used my PRG to purchase two $50 gift certs on Jan 1 and Jan 4. Both were reimbursed within a week of purchases.

I've been using Delta, easy process, buy 4 x $50 all at once, reimbursed right away, certificates emailed right away.

Switched to Alaska this year.

My experience:

Don't try to buy these while you are logged into your Alaska account, it errors out every time.

The first one I bought at $50 I selected the email option. Never received the email with the PIN code. Called customer care and they were to email me a copy. Never received it. Called again and did get the PIN emailed. Customer care agents have been very good to deal with.

Second and third $50 was purchased using the print feature. Was able to print with a PIN code on the certificate right away. This option worked the best for me.

Credit has been hitting my account 3 days after purchase.

Purchased 2 x $100 on Jan 24 and 25.
One was reimbursed on Feb 3. Nothing yet for the second one.

Anyone else experienced slow reimbursements recently for AS?
Last year they were credited within 1-2 days.

Mine must have just posted, dated yesterday, Feb 9. It wasn't there late last night.

Give it a little more time.
