Alaska Airlines Rewards Customers for Tagging Their Own Bags

Airline passengers are always looking for a quicker way to get through the hassles associated with the airport, and Alaska Airlines has taken those requests to heart and is doing its part to help its customers.

According to the company’s official website, Alaska Airlines is offering its passengers the chance to earn 1,000 Bonus Miles by simply tagging their own bags before getting to the airport and dropping them off with a customer service agent at a specified bag drop location.

By using, customers will be able to print out bag tags, attach them to their luggage and leave it with employees at the drop area in the ticketing lobby. The company also provides a reusable bag tag holder for passengers, which can be mailed ahead of time or picked up at the airport.

Upon completion of all the aforementioned steps, Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members will be credited with 1,000 Bonus Miles. Not only will customers save time at the airport, but they will also be rewarded for helping to speed up the overall process.

For passengers considering Alaska Airlines, the mileage plan memberships are free and members can begin earning rewards immediately. Of course customers will be able to earn miles for flying, but they can also earn credit for common expenses like eating out or even shopping.

With the chance to earn a substantial amount of airline miles by simply tagging your own bag in hopes of speeding up the process, this is truly a win-win situation for passengers and the airlines themselves.

Let’s hope Alaska Airlines starts a trend that all other companies follow.
