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 a few shopping portal bonuses, which could be a great deal if you’re doing any online shopping.
Earn 1,500 bonus points with three 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 500 bonus miles when you spend at least $150 by February 13, 2023.
American AAdvantage eShopping bonus
American AAdvantage eShopping is offering 500 bonus miles when you spend at least $200 by February 13, 2023.
United MileagePlus Shopping bonus
United MileagePlus Shopping is offering 500 bonus miles when you spend at least $150 by February 13, 2023.
Between these three shopping portal promotions you can earn up to 1,500 bonus points for spending $500. You can take advantage of each 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 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.
