Through December 31, new annual Board Room airport lounge memberships come bundled with two bonuses: 5,000 bonus Mileage Plan miles for the buyer, plus a donation on the buyer’s behalf of 2,500 Mileage Plan miles to the Make-A-Wish charity.
The bonus is only valid for new members who have not been active Board Room members in the 60 days prior to enrolling — membership renewals are not eligible for the bonus.
Deal or No Deal
New annual memberships start at $450 for non-elite Mileage Plan members.
Glaringly apparent when contemplating a Board Room membership is the paltry number of Alaska-operated lounges in the network: just five, in Anchorage, Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
Sure, Alaska has relationships in place, mostly with Delta, that allow Board Room members access to around 50 other lounges. But those lounges may or may not be convenient to Alaska’s gates at those airports.
Bonus or no bonus, a Board Room membership only makes financial sense for those who fly Alaska regularly, and to or from the airline’s main five airports.
