Thumbs up AS Mileage Plan New Enrollment Bonus - Exclusively for Canadians

There is currently an undocumented enrollment bonus for Canadians. Recieve 3,500 bonus miles upon enrolling in the Mileage Plus program.

New members recieve:

Web Enrollment Bonus - 500
Canadian Web Enrollment Bonus - 2,500
Web Newsletter Opt In Bonus - 500

For a total of 3,500 miles.

This bonus works for Canada-wide postal codes. It does not work for new USA accounts (although, you can get the miles if you have a nice Canadian friend who is willing to let you virtually move-in for two weeks).

Enjoy!

Apparently no links necessary.

Just goto the Alaska site and signup for Mileage Plan but make sure that you list ur address as Canada with a Candadian zip code.

then make sure that you check off to receive the newletter box.

hit enter and voila you will see on the sign up page 500+2500+500

no kidding.

thank roadtrip man for the hidden bonus!

That's right, no links necessary. This is a completely unadvertised promotion - I've looked for an official announcement everywhere.

Glad to help everyone! Enjoy!

Does AS have any issues merging accounts later?

AS far as I'm concerned, AS had this promotion all the way back in 2001. In fact, I signed up my AS account with this promotion back then.

That very well may be. I just found out about it when enrolling my family last week.

If you are referring to buy/share miles, then I am pretty certain AS has a 5,000 mile minimum buy/sell restriction. So, you'd have to earn 1,500 before being able to transfer to someone else's account (I think).

I meant. If I happen to have two AS accounts, do they have issues merging them together into one and combining the miles? it is common practice on AA, when a CitiCard or other promo gives you a second AA account that you don't need to track?

Oh, I'm not too sure about that kind of situation. I thought it was impossible. I know it's impossible on UA. I had a dormant UA account with no miles in it that I forgot about, and when I signed up with UA with a friend's referral (3000 mile bonus) I recieved an email telling me they weren't allowing me to open the account because I had one already from a couple years back (with a balance of 0). They cancelled the new account and made me stick with the old one (which is probably the reason why I am not an avid UA flyer - seems silly on their part).

I guess you could sign up for the promotion, then give them a call. The worst they'll say is "no".

BoA opened a new MP acct for me when I got the sig card on the 20k promo last winter. I just had to call up the MVPG line and they merged them with no problems - after I'd figured out (with some help from this board) that this was the reason my bonus had not posted.

I have some Canadian friends. Will they mail a welcome kit or something like that?
