More Information: Oines says that he originally approached Alaska Airlines about becoming a Mileage Plan Partner to benefit other Alaskans, but most of the responses so far have been from customers outside of Alaska.

"Living on an island in Southeast Alaska, my only option for air travel is Alaska Airlines, and this is true for most people in the state. Here in Alaska, almost everyone is an Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Member, because it's the only airline we fly! Most of us use Alaska Airlines credit cards too-anything to get free travel!

"What I've learned in the short time the program has been in effect is that it's not just Alaskans who are mileage plan members. In fact, most of the responses so far have been from our customers in Washington and California."

Oines says that what started as "An Alaskan Jewelry Store" now does business all over the world.

"We've sent orders to England, Australia, Japan, and Spain-just sent a gold nugget ring to one of our soldiers serving in Iraq. Actually, we just finished an engagement ring for a soldier coming home from Iraq as well."

"Really, it's a benefit to anyone who buys jewelry and also flies, because the miles can also be used on any of Alaska Airline's partner carriers as well, which effectively span the globe. American Airlines, British Airways, Continental, Delta, Hawaiian, Northwest-they're all partners."

"I think that offering bonus miles is a huge benefit for our mutual customers."
