Any gate at Sea-Tac is reachable from any other gate without passing through TSA security again. You can walk between concourses A, B, C, and D, but if you are traveling to or from the N or S gates, (you should be as they serve international flights) which are in separate buildings, then you can't walk; you must take the train.

No, you cannot. Frequent flyer programs are traditionally designed to reward the traveler, not the purchaser. They were a differentiator at a time when fares and routes were tightly regulated, and the high cost of tickets made non-business travel a rarity; most frequent flyer programs are still aimed at attracting business travelers, who fly more frequently ...
