I agree this gives us a chance to get some extra miles and plus it is fun. I used to collect stamps when I was a kid, now I'm collecting miles. Unfortunately my B class paid ticket is for Sep. 2-20 so I get only 50% of bonus points.

Does anyone anticipate getting all 100K?

Thanks for the heads up!

The way I read the fine print, I get 5 points per one way for using online check in at nwa.com. So a LAX-HNL-LAX would earn me 10 points just for printing my boarding passes online?

I won't make the 100K but already had HNL tix in hand, so at least a 1K bonus for doing something I'll already be doing anyway is a good thing.

I think now i'll buy my WC membership in January instead of March. The bonus miles + the plat rate (at that time) make it sooooooo worth it.

Right. Hopefully, that wasn't a real costly piece of creative. As for the promo itself, it's always good to have something to play around with.

Why not? Earning opportunity wise? I just checked and it is exactly same points to miles conversion rate as for Mile-A-Rama from last winter.

Yeah, although I think the dreadfully cheesy names are on purpose. I mean, Mile-a-rama? Mile-a-palooza? And now this? They're almost so bad as to be hilarious in their own right.

After reading all the T&C's, I couldn't find anything on earning points when flying partner airlines, i.e. CO. In mid September, I will be flying on CO metal, but I will be crediting my miles to my NW Worldperks account.

How does this work, if anyone knows?

Thanks.
