Allegiant Air rewards program, myAllegiant™, allows you to earn points using the Allegiant World MasterCard® credit card. It's the only way you can earn myAllegiant™ points with the airline and you can't earn points by simply flying.

The Allegiant World MasterCard® credit card comes with a small 15,000-point sign-up bonus, 3 points on Allegiant purchases, 2 points on dining and 1 on all other purchases. Annual fee is $59. The value of Allegiant points is fixed at one cent each. So, the 15,000-point sign-up bonus is equal to $150 and can be used as a statement credit toward Allegiant Air purchases only.

You can't buy additional Allegiant points if you don't have enough points for a flight. Keep in mind that Allegiant points expire in 12 months of account inactivity.

While you might expect a co-branded Allegiant credit card to be the best way to earn myAllegiant™ points, you would be mistaken. Travel rewards cards that allow you to redeem points toward any travel purchase, not just those made with one airline, and have generous rewards, seem to offer more.
