MaxInsights offers a numerical analysis and recommendation of how to best use this reward system.
Allegiant’s rewards program is very lean – you earn points based only on co-branded card spend, and miles flown with the airline play no part in your rewards (unless flights are paid for with an Allegiant card). Points are worth approximately 1 cent apiece, and you get the most bang for your buck when purchasing vacation packages from the airline.

Allegiant Air’s myAllegiant is an unusual rewards program in that you cannot earn points by flying and the airline has no elite status; rather, points are earned for spend on Allegiant co-branded credit cards and can be redeemed for airfare and vacation packages. Basically, your earning a free flight has nothing to do with how much you fly Allegiant, unless you are paying for your flights with an Allegiant co-branded card.
What exactly are the points worth?
Points are worth 1 cent apiece when redeemed for travel booked with Allegiant. Vacation packages bought from Allegiant can value your points at more than 1 cent apiece, however, as you earn free companion fare with a package that includes 4 nights at a hotel or a car rental of 7 days.
