Or does it stack? 1000 x 1.75 x 1.5 = 2625
It stacks: 500 + 375 + 438 = 1313 one way / 2626 roundtrip

Nice, I may have to book up a couple more after work SEA-PDX mileage runs for $111.20 in I fare first.

You could basically hit MVPG for $1,780 just doing that run 16 times. That's pretty crazy... and 4.2 per mile isn't even the best rate you can find right now... it's just that run is just a quick & easy routing.

based on that promotion, one will get 1500 EQM for a RT.

so MVPG 40000/1500 = 27 RTs.

27*40 = $1080

At the same time, a MVPG can get 80000 RDMs...

just a hypothetical situation!
dude you have to have a lot of free time to do that many turns lol

When you put it that way, I could hit MVPG for around $800 by the end of March (with the fare sale that ends today). It seems like a bargain!

dude all of the conference I would have gone to in SF have either been cancelled or changed to a online format.

stanford university has gone online with all of their classes and requesting employees work from home. San Francisco is under a state of emergency and even Salesforce went the online route with one of recent trade shows. Whatever SF Conference it is, its going to be cancelled...no way is the city gonna want to bring thousands of people from other hot spots to SF.

I take that SoCal-NorCal flight should net 750 EQM (500 min EQM + 50% EQM bonus)?

I might just do some SEA-PDX RT mileage run. $34.4 for 1500 EQM and 2000 RDM is a great deal.

I just tried doing an LAX-SJC booking on the $20 Saver fares and for some reason when you go to check out it tells you the total due is $34.40. Alaska IT strikes again?

I booked a bunch of these (just before this promo) between PDX and SEA and noticed that round-trips were pricing slightly lower than two one-ways.

I don't ask why, I just ask often!

Likely due to only needing one $5.60 security fee if you are doing a quick turnaround (I think under 4 hours).

Oh! Well that makes sense and it's certainly something to remember if I need to do any more quick turns in the future. Thanks!

Is it doable to book 30 min-ish turnaround at PDX and SEA airport? I am not familiar with both airports (mostly flying through SFO and LAX). It sound like 1 r/t Y transcon + 2 days of SEA-PDX F/Y run should be sufficient to hit MVPG.
