NWA PerkChoice Changes
||:: Late-Breaking News
(Posted: Sep 19, 2008)
Earlier this year, Northwest WorldPerks introduced PerkChoice, a flexible award option that allows members to use miles for one way of a roundtrip flight and cash for the return.
More than one WorldPerks member found out the hard way that although PerkChoice offers members a welcomed alternative to miles only, the 'part miles part cash' awards had some rather unpleasant restrictions, such as no miles on the paid segment.
WorldPerks responded to members' disappointment by making a few adjustments, including adding mileage accrual, and members will now earn EQMs on the paid portion of PerkChoice flights.
In addition, WorldPerks elite members will now receive complimentary space available upgrades on the paid portion and all members can use miles to upgrade to First Class on the cash portion of the itinerary.
When booking awards on nwa.com, members can view the lowest PerkChoice fares along with award availability and mileage amounts, making it easier for members to decide whether to use miles for the entire roundtrip or a combination of miles and cash.
