    Just noticed this today:

    Use either the Alaska Airlines or Southwest Airlines online shopping portals to place orders at Competitive Cyclist and earn 3 miles per dollar spent. The only worthwhile restriction is "Not eligible on Santa Cruz Nomad bikes & frames." So as long as you can find something you like that isn't a nomad, go ahead and blow $5K on a new bike and get 15K miles on either airline. In some cases that's enough to buy a round trip ticket. I've booked flights on Southwest for as little as 6K points each way.

    And have them ship the bike to your lodging in MT or OR so you don't pay sales tax, basically a free bike vacation! AK air doesn't charge extra for bikes on the flight home.

    A good deed never goes unpunished. :)

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'll return to lurker status... Maybe.

    Funny thing is I usually buy a new bike about once every five years. Summer 2008: Ibis Mojo. Summer 2013: Tallboy C. Summer 2018: Dunno. It ain't over yet, but what's not to like about scoring a boatload of airline miles. :)

    Alaska Airlines may be preferable to Southwest depending on how many miles you score!

    Alaska is always the one to choose if you get the option!
