Las Vegas-based low cost carrier Allegiant Air has introduced Allways Rewards, an airline loyalty program the carrier says is designed specifically for leisure travelers. The announcement coincides with the airline’s release of its winter schedule which adds 22 new nonstop routes.
Members in the new Allways Rewards program receive one point for every dollar spent at Allegiant.com, and two points per $1 for spending over $500 (excluding taxes and fees). Points are available for use 72 hours after travel on Allegiant and can be redeemed at the rate of 1ȼ per point.
There are no blackout dates or usage fees and no minimum requirements for redemption. And since points are awarded to the buyer rather than to an individual traveler, the Allways member will receive full credit for purchasing family travel, not just the cost of their own ticket.
Another key benefit to be added later this year, according to the airline: Allways Rewards members will receive a five percent discount on all airfare purchased at Allegiant.com.
