If you are on a certain sellers items, they may have Alaska blocked.  Some sellers won't sell out of the 48 states. Sellers can block Alaska/Hawaii, Canada, or the US Protectorates. This is all on Site Preferences under Exclude shipping locations. I notice in the Answer Center where a lot of sellers won't ship to these places.
