According to this post on Milepoint, Alaska Airlines is offering 5,000 bonus miles for all travelers who sign up for Board Room memberships by December 31st. Alaska brands its club lounges as Board Rooms (in the same way that Delta calls its lounges Sky Clubs). A complete list of locations can be found here.

Standard one year memberships are $450 (this price includes the initiation fee) and are reduced for Alaska MVP and Gold members.

Board Room members actually have access to all domestic Delta Sky Clubs when traveling same day on an Alaska or Delta ticket. Even with that perk, this isn’t a good deal. Alaska only has five Board Room locations, and the best way to get access to Alaska and Delta lounges is still with the American Express Platinum card. That card has been discussed several times on MileValue, including here and here. It also ranks highly on our Best Card Offers by Absolute Value.

With the American Express Platinum card, you have access to Delta and American lounges when traveling same day on those carriers. You also have access to US Airways lounges anytime. The card even comes with Priority Pass Select membership, giving you access to the Alaska Board Rooms. You get all of this access for a $450 annual credit card fee, the same price as signing up for an Alaska Board Room membership only.

Note that with the Priority Pass Select membership, you must pay $27 per guest. At American, Delta, and US Airways lounges, up to two guests are admitted for free.
