There are two current promotions which can potentially net you tens of thousands of Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan frequent flier loyalty program miles and help you earn MVP elite status for next year faster.
First, you can earn double elite qualification miles towards elite status for next year and double Mileage Plan frequent flier loyalty program miles on select non-stop flights marketed and operated by Alaska Airlines from now through May 31, 2014 — at least a full six months — but you must first register for this promotion prior to your first qualifying flight.
The qualifying non-stop flights are between Seattle and the following six airports:

  • Las Vegas McCarran International Airport
  • Los Angeles Los Angeles International Airport
  • San Francisco San Francisco International Airport
  • Oakland Oakland International Airport
  • San Jose San Jose International Airport
  • Santa Rosa Charles M. Schulz–Sonoma County Airport

 
According to FlyerTalk member eponymous_coward, this offer appears to be “stackable” with the Easy as 1 2 3 promotion where you can earn up to 10,000 bonus Mileage Plan frequent flier loyalty program miles when you fly as a passenger on three round-trip flights by November 12, 2013 between Seattle and the following five cities:

  • Boston
  • Las Vegas
  • Los Angeles
  • Philadelphia
  • San Francisco

 
…and between Portland and the following six cities:

  • Atlanta
  • Chicago
  • Dallas
  • Las Vegas
  • Los Angeles
  • San Francisco

 
If you fly as a passenger on two round-trip flights instead of three, you earn 5,000 bonus Mileage Plan frequent flier loyalty program miles.
The routes between Seattle and Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Francisco qualify for both promotions. This means that if you can take advantage of both offers simultaneously — and I see no verbiage in the terms and conditions for either promotion to suggest otherwise — you can really rake in the Mileage Plan frequent flier loyalty program miles and qualify for elite status in a shorter period of time.
Here is an example: register first for both promotions and then fly between Seattle and Los Angeles on the non-stop flights marketed and operated by Alaska Airlines three times by November 12, 2013 — and you can earn:

  • 1,908 Mileage Plan frequent flier loyalty program miles for each round trip of the three round-trip flights
  • 1,908 bonus Mileage Plan frequent flier loyalty program miles for each round trip of the three round-trip flights
  • 10,000 Mileage Plan frequent flier loyalty program miles after three round-trip non-stop flights
  • 1,908 elite qualification miles towards elite status for next year for each segment of the six segments
  • 1,908 bonus elite qualification miles towards elite status for next year for each segment of the six segments

 
…which means that you could potentially earn 21,448 Mileage Plan frequent flier loyalty program miles plus 11,448 elite qualification miles towards MVP elite status for next year on those three round-trip non-stop flights…
…and these bonuses do not include what you would earn as an MVP elite member of the Mileage Plan frequent flier loyalty program.
Neither promotion is valid on free or award travel. Other terms and conditions apply.
