Online shopping portals can be a great way to pick up additional miles & points for purchases you’d make anyway. Just for following a specific link you can earn bonus points in addition to the ones you’d earn for credit card spending. Whenever I make an online purchase I always check to see which shopping portal has the best bonus.
Apple is a retailer that generally doesn’t discount much, though at the moment there’s an opportunity to earn bonus points for Apple purchases. This is one of the best shopping portal offers I ever recall seeing for Apple purchases.
Through Saturday, August 24, 2019, the British Airways Avios eStore is offering 12x Avios per dollar spent with Apple.
There are some terms associated with this, though.
This reward is valid for the following purchases:
Stated reward is for purchasing: the new iPad Air, new iPad mini, Mac mini, new MacBook Air, new iMac, new iPad Pro, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, new iPad with support for Apple Pencil, HomePod, new iMac Pro, Apple TV 4K, Apple iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, Apple Watch Series 4, Apple Watch Edition, Apple Watch, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, new 9.7-inch iPad (5th Generation), new 10.5-inch iPad Pro, new 12.9-inch iPad Pro, iPad mini 4, new MacBook Pro, iMac with Retina 5k display, Mac mini, iPad Pro, iPad Pro 9.7 inch, Apple Pencil, Apple Watch Series 3, New MacBook, New Mac Pro, Retina 4K 21.5 inch iMac, Retina 5K 27 inch iMac, iMac, new iMac, Mac mini, Mac Pro, Macbook Air, Macbook Pro, iPod Nano, iPod Shuffle, iPod Touch, Beats, Beats X, Accessories, Software, Apple TV (old model) and the new Apple TV.
However, no rewards are given on new products when launched, including the new AirPods or on one-to-one membership, shipping and tax charges, Bose products, Apple Developer Programs, Apple Employee Purchase Programs, iTunes gift cards, Apple gift card purchases, and gift wrap.
There are also the following limits:
Rewards will only be available for up to 2 iPhones and 5 of all other products per order within a 30 days period. Apple sells and ships products to end user customers only; you may not purchase for resale. Apple reserves the final right to refuse rewards should they suspect a transaction being trader’s activity. This applies to all products sold on Apple.
So if you do take advantage of this you’ll want to check all the terms.
Keep in mind that the 12x Avios are in addition to the points you’d usually earn for these purchases using your credit card.
Anyone plan to take advantage of this Apple shopping portal bonus?
