Seeing Gary’s post today, it reminded me that the wife and I have a lot of expiring Upgrade Certificates on Alaska Airlines.  It seems like the four Alaska MVP Gold Guest Upgrade Certificates went pretty fast.  Since my wife and I are an Alaska Airlines power couple (both MVP Gold75K’s), we can be a little more generous.  We have 15, yes 15, upgrade certificates that we can give away.  I’ll give away one or two (max, need to let everyone have a chance) to each person who replies to this post.  Remember that the certificates can only be used this month and, most importantly, you must see “U” class availability for your flight.  See the example below:

Alaska Upgrades

If you have a flight that qualifies, leave us a post.  For those of you asking why we have 15 excess upgrades, it is because we usually book the lowest fare knowing that as Gold75Ks we will probably get upgraded even without the upgrade cert.  The wife is 19 for 22 upgrades this year and I am 14 for 19.  Being a Gold75K is pretty nice!

  13. Angela says:

  14. Allen says:

    Please please please , I’m taking my wife and kid on a ski trip in Jan, I’ll sit in economy they can seat in the good seats! Please and thanks

  15. Benji says:

    Please don’t take this as a slight to your generosity, but for my situation this would be an awful deal. I’m disappointed in Alaska Air. I wasn’t sure if I had to search for MVP upgrade or gold upgrade. The price was more than twice the lowest available non upgrade fair. Being curious I searched for first class. It is cheaper for me to buy a first class ticket than a coach ticket that one can upgrade.

  16. Jason says:

    My wife and I are flying Alaska in three weeks and would appreciate 2 upgrade certificates. I checked and it does have “U” class availability. Thanks.

  23. David Singer says:

    My wife and I can use two upgrade certificates for our flight on Alaska a week from Saturday. Thanks!

    • glenn says:

      Alright, everyone, that’s all there is! Demand was pretty overwhelming. I will watch our account for the next couple of weeks and see if the upgrades are used. If not used by the 20th, I reserve the right to give them to someone else. I will give out any in the order of requests received to date so no need to reply again. Thanks for playing!

  24. Emi says:

  26. Elizabeth Haglund says:

    we do not qualify for these upgrades, but are just getting involved in the miles and points game and trying to figure it all out. We have Alaska flights to Hawaii next July so hopefully you will think of us next year. Love all your posts and help with the miles and points game.
