Airline Shopping Portal Bonuses: Earn 8,700 Bonus Points

Airline Shopping Portal Bonuses: Earn 8,700 Bonus Points

3

Online shopping portals can be a great way to pick up additional miles & points for purchases you’d make anyway. For following a specific link you can earn bonus points in addition to the ones you’d earn for credit card spending.

The number of bonus points you earn per dollar spent varies greatly by retailer, though in addition to those variable bonuses, there are often promotions that are available on all purchases. At the moment there are several shopping portal bonuses, which could be a great deal if you’re doing any online shopping.

Earn 8,700 bonus points with four portal bonuses

Some airline shopping portals are currently offering promotions for online purchases, should you have any shopping to do. If you’re going to make online purchases anyway, you might as well take advantage of these offers. Let’s go over what you need to know.

Alaska Mileage Plan Shopping bonus

Alaska Mileage Plan Shopping is offering a tiered bonus of up to 1,200 miles for purchases through the portal by Monday, August 15, 2022. Specifically, you can earn the following (all spending amounts and bonus miles are cumulative):

  • 300 bonus miles when you spend $150
  • 600 bonus miles when you spend $300
  • 1,200 bonus miles when you spend $600

American AAdvantage eShopping bonus

American AAdvantage eShopping is offering a tiered bonus of up to 2,000 miles for purchases through the portal by Sunday, August 14, 2022. Specifically, you can earn the following (all spending amounts and bonus miles are cumulative):

  • 500 bonus miles when you spend $150
  • 1,000 bonus miles when you spend $300
  • 2,000 bonus miles when you spend $600

Delta SkyMiles Shopping bonus

Delta SkyMiles Shopping is offering a tiered bonus of up to 1,000 miles for purchases through the portal by Thursday, August 11, 2022. Specifically, you can earn the following (all spending amounts and bonus points are cumulative):

  • 500 bonus miles when you spend $200

Southwest Rapid Rewards Shopping bonus

  • 250 bonus points when you spend $125
  • 900 bonus points when you spend $300

United MileagePlus Shopping bonus

United MileagePlus Shopping is offering a tiered bonus of up to 2,500 miles for purchases through the portal by Monday, August 15, 2022. Specifically, you can earn the following (all spending amounts and bonus miles are cumulative):

  • 500 bonus miles when you spend $100
  • 1,500 bonus miles when you spend $350
  • 2,500 bonus miles when you spend $600

Bottom line

Between these five shopping portal promotions you can earn up to 8,700 bonus points for spending $2,750. You can take advantage of both of these promotions, and each is based on your cumulative spending through a particular portal during the offer period. The bonus points should post within 10 weeks of when the promotions end.

If you make purchases in the right increments you could be earning over three bonus points per dollar spent, not even factoring in the points usually being offered through the shopping portals, plus the points you usually earn through credit card spending (make sure you’re using the best credit cards for everyday spending). That can add up.

Beyond airline shopping portal bonuses, also keep in mind that Rakuten is pretty awesome, as it offers a great bonus for new members, and you can earn Amex Membership Rewards points with the portal. Personally that’s what I use for most of my online purchases.

Do you plan on taking advantage of these shopping portal bonuses?

    Do those AA miles count as Loyalty points

    1. DiogenesTheCynic New Member

      Pretty sure no -- these bonuses don't count as LPs, but when a shopping outlet has increased earn rates (e.g., 3 miles per dollar, up from 1 normally), you do get 3 LPs per dollar.
