New Airline Shopping Portal Bonuses

6

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.

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. We’ve just seen some of those bonuses introduced.

Earn 16,000 bonus points with five portal bonuses

Several airline shopping portals are offering good promotions for online purchases, should you have any online shopping to do. If you’re going to make online purchases anyway, you might as well take advantage of these offers. Here’s what you need to know about these deals:

Bottom line

Between these five shopping portal promotions you can earn up to 16,000 bonus points. Admittedly the spending requirements are substantial to max out the points you can earn, but hopefully some people will get value out of this.

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 miles should post within 10 weeks of when the promotions end.

If you make purchases in the right increments you could be earning an average of 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.

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

Or would I receive 5 loyalty points (4/$1 Macys shopping portal + 4/$1 cc spend).

    Your reporting is great. I have enjoyed business class for many years and since the pandemic has made it difficult for me to travel, I like so much reading your excellent reports. I read you every day and you are responsible for my getting the Sapphire Reserve card. which I am very pleased to use for not just my travels.
