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 anyway for credit card spend. 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 today there’s an opportunity to score quite a few miles on Apple purchases, and the terms are also more favorable than in the past.
Today (Wednesday, June 26, 2019) several shopping portals are offering bonus miles on Apple purchases:
- Alaska Mileage Plan is offering 8x miles
- United MileagePlus is offering 8x miles
- American AAdvantage is offering 6x miles
- Delta SkyMiles is offering 4x miles
- Southwest Rapid Rewards is offering 4x points
We see these promotions every so often, though this is one of the best we’ve seen on Apple purchases. Not only do you have your choice of a lot of shopping portals, but 8x miles is one of the best bonuses I recall seeing.
I’d definitely go with Alaska or United here, and in particular with Alaska, since I value those miles most of all of these currencies.
The terms on this offer are as follows:
Please note these terms & conditions: Rewards are issued by this site, not Apple. Products not eligible for rewards are gift cards, gift wrap, Bose products, Apple Developer Programs and shipping. Apple sells and ships products to end user customers only; you may not purchase for resale. Eligible only to a customer for up to five (5) units per eligible product, except iPhone, in which case only two (2) units within a thirty-day (30-day) period are eligible. Not eligible on purchases made with coupon or discount codes that are not found on this site. Not eligible on gift cards, gift certificates or any other similar cash equivalents. Purchases made with a gift card may be ineligible.
What’s exciting is that this is significantly less restrictive than in the past. The only things that don’t qualify for the promotion are gift cards, gift wrap, Bose products, Apple Developer Programs, and shipping.
Also keep in mind that the up to 8x miles are in addition to the points you’d usually earn for these purchases through credit card spending, so when you add it all up, this could translate to a pretty significant return.
Anyone plan to take advantage of this Apple shopping portal bonus?
