Update: Check your emails for an offer from Alaska Airlines to Virgin America account holders to open an Alaska mileage account and earn 10K miles or $100 off an Alaska flight.
Some people’s offers require that you open an account by today while other people’s offers are valid in February.
I got 10K bonus miles and my wife and kids did as well thanks to having Virgin America account from the JetBlue PointsMatch offer. Talk about the deal that keeps on giving!
If you had a Virgin America account as of 12/5 and didn’t get 10K miles in your Alaska account or get an email to claim 10K miles you can call Alaska and ask about the promotion.

In other news, people that had a Virgin America account as of 12/5 also got a nice surprise in their Alaska account. Here is the gift I found in my account:
If you only have a Virgin America account and not an Alaska account you should get an email asking you to open an Alaska account to claim your choice of 10K miles or $100 off a flight.
