Alaska Airlines partners with Greenlight® to empower the next generation of financially savvy kids

At Alaska Airlines, we believe there are tremendous benefits in teaching kids how to save and invest starting at a young age. That’s why we’re welcoming Greenlight® as a new Mileage Plan partner.

Our loyalty program already offers great benefits for parents and their children, including family seating and boarding that guarantees one adult will be seated next to any child 13 or younger; parental leave that allows our elite fliers to put their status on pause; kid-friendly food items on board; car seats that fly for free; and more.

Greenlight shines a light on something we all think about: money. It offers financial tools to help parents raise financially smart kids. The company’s award-winning debit card and app teaches kids and teens how to earn, save, invest and spend wisely—all with parental supervision. Kids can also access Greenlight Level Up™, an in-app financial literacy game with a best-in-class curriculum, educational challenges, and rewards.

As a father of two young children, my spouse and I have used Greenlight since 2021 to help educate our kids about money management,” said Brett Catlin, vice president of loyalty, alliances and sales at Alaska Airlines. “We’re always looking for best-in-class brands to partner with and I’m excited for our members to experience the Greenlight platform.”
