50K bonus mile posting

Searched for a thread on this but couldn't find one. Mods please move if there is.

Does anyone have insight into when your 50K bonus miles post after achieving 75K? Been almost a month for me and no joy. Wife is trying to book a family trip and can't do so without these.

Thanks.

Typically within a day of the new status reflection. I'd contact the MP (tomorrow - Monday) - unless you achieved status through some promo other than flying a full 75/90K. (Did the GGUs and Lounge Passes post?)

Yep, four of each. And yes, 75K+ all on Alaska metal. Probably just a glitch. Thanks.

Posted during the night after I reached 75k in November.
Just to be clear the 50k bonus is for the current 75k members that re-qualify for 75k. you don't get the 50k the first year you reach 75k.

I think I have to disagree with your assertion.


I was (almost) immediately awarded 50k bonus miles the FIRST time I achieved 75K and EACH time I have requalified since then.

I'll first presume innocence and say...

those who are status matched do not qualify for the 50K bonus during their status match year.

From the AS website, 50K bonus when you attain status, not maintain status, organically.

James

Enjoy a 125% bonus on base miles earned with Alaska Airlines and our elite-qualifying airline partners and 50,000 bonus miles when you attain status.

Members granted complimentary status, including status matched from another program, are not eligible for the 50,000 bonus mile offer.

I've been getting my 50K bonus back before G75K was around.

That was the only real perk for flying to that level at one time...

Confirmed to be a glitch. Hopefully it posts soon. 30 minute wait on MVP customer care though.

Bay Area cancellations bogging them down maybe?

Definitely a longer wait than I am used to. No biggie, just worked and listened to the awesome loop music. Alaska should invest in one of those phone systems that will queue you up and call back with an available agent.
