A renewal deadline
is coming up this weekend, and if you miss it, you will no longer receive
Alaska Airline Miles with your purchases at Safeway.
Jay Barrett has more:
Alaska, most residents do whatever they can to build up as many Alaska Airline
Miles as they can, to take the edge off high-priced airplane tickets. One way
is the 125 miles Safeway awards its customers for every 250-dollars they spend
- if they use the Carrs-Safeway Club Card. But if you don't act quickly, you
may find that avenue to airline miles has dried up. For some reason, the change
has not been publicized very widely.
until Saturday to update your Safeway Club Card, either online or at the store,
according to Kodiak Safeway Manager Mike Murray:
-- (Murray deadline 18 sec "Now while the ... complete this process.")
the store is hoping to update everyone's Club Card accounts:
-- (Murray Updates 28 sec "The
company's had a need ... that's already existing.")
though there's not a lot of publicity from the store, it's not a secret, and some
managers at Carrs and Safeway stores have had their clerks informing customers
during check-out that their miles may soon stop accumulating:
-- (Murray encouraging 19 sec "Of course we have ... you might as well get it.")
Carrs-Safeway customers have received e-mails telling them that the company has
taken care of the renewal for them. It's unclear why more haven't, or why it's
not an automatic renewal. Calls to Safeway's public relations department in the
Seattle area have gone unanswered.
find the renewal form on the Safeway dot com website, but in keeping with the
low-key approach Safeway is taking with the program, it's not an obvious link.
It's located at the bottom of the page as "Airline Renewal" under "Services."
