I can earn up to 6,000 Alitalia MilleMiglia frequent flier loyalty program miles — and you can as well, as this offer does not appear to be “targeted.”
I received an e-mail message from Alitalia inviting me to register with the MilleMiglia frequent flier loyalty program by March 30, 2013 and I will earn an extra bonus of 2,000 MilleMiglia frequent flier loyalty program miles. All I have to do is “click on the special link” which appears here.
If I then fly on a flight operated by Alitalia by April 30, 2013, I will earn an additional 2,000 bonus MilleMiglia frequent flier loyalty program miles which — when added to the 2013 Welcome Bonus awarded to my by Alitalia for having completed a transaction within three months of registration — will increase the balance of my MilleMiglia frequent flier loyalty program account up to 6,000 miles in total.
All booking classes will be considered valid for obtaining the bonus MilleMiglia frequent flier loyalty program miles.
Considering that a standard award ticket can be obtained for as few as 20,000 MilleMiglia frequent flier loyalty program miles, this offer gets you close to a third of the way towards that goal. You can then transfer Starpoints from the Starwood Preferred Guest program into your MilleMiglia frequent flier loyalty program account and receive one Starpoint for every MilleMiglia frequent flier loyalty program mile to top off your account — and you receive an extra 5,000 bonus MilleMiglia frequent flier loyalty program miles if you are able to transfer a minimum of 20,000 Starpoints to get you closer to award travel. However, be forewarned of the likelihood of having to pay a fuel surcharge on your award ticket, so this may not be a good deal — and I believe that Starpoints are more valuable than MilleMiglia frequent flier loyalty program miles, so I would not personally use this option.
Rather, I would recommend that — for as few as 10,000 MilleMiglia frequent flier loyalty program miles — you can upgrade on flights from Italy to Albania, Algeria, Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Libya, Malta, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Switzerland or Tunisia.
Although Alitalia has treated me well on virtually every flight on which I have been a passenger and I have enjoyed each of my experiences, I am going to pass on this offer as I have no plans to travel back to or through Italy anytime before April 30, 2013…
…but if you plan on traveling as a passenger on Alitalia before April 30, 2013 and you are not yet a member of the MilleMiglia frequent flier loyalty program, I recommend taking advantage of this offer.

    I don’t know what you have been smoking but
    “Starwood Preferred Guest — You can transfer your 6,000 MilleMiglia frequent flier loyalty program miles into the Starwood Preferred Guest program and receive 6,000 Starpoints — and you receive an extra 5,000 bonus Starpoints if you are able to transfer a minimum of 20,000 MilleMiglia frequent flier loyalty program miles”
    does not make any sense. As far as I know you can only transfer from Starwood into MilleMiglia.

    The scary part is that I have not been smoking anything. You are correct, cvarming – the reverse is true. I have corrected that part of the article. Thank you.

    Really not a great deal unless you live in Italy. But I love any story with my photo in it. 🙂

    Did you click on your photograph, JGfromOC? This is an unpublished feature of The Gate when a photograph from a trip report is used…

    I did! Thanks. This is awesome. Glad to see those pics going to some good use. I’ll have another AZ J trip report + some Puglia and Rome adventure pics to share later this June. For future AZ stories 🙂
