Today Only: Earn Bonus Miles On Apple Purchases

Today Only: Earn Bonus Miles On Apple Purchases

7

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.

There’s one promotion on online purchases today that I think is worth being aware of.

Earn up to 4x airline miles on Apple purchases

Apple is a retailer that generally doesn’t discount much, though at the moment there are some opportunities to earn bonus miles for Apple purchases. This promotion is available for a limited time, so you’ll want to act fast.

Today (Monday, August 15, 2022) you can earn the following number of bonus miles for Apple purchases:

Of these options, I think the best values are with Alaska Mileage Plan and American AAdvantage. Mileage Plan miles are the most valuable, while with AAdvantage you can earn Loyalty Points.

While up to 4x miles might not sound like that much, the reality is that we don’t often see bonuses for Apple purchases, and this is just about as good as it gets. Also keep in mind that you can stack this with shopping portal spending bonuses currently being offered.

What Apple purchases qualify for this bonus?

If you do take advantage of the opportunity to earn bonus miles on Apple purchases, note the following terms about excluded products, how many products you can purchase, etc.:

To qualify for rewards you must complete your purchase within the same session you start the purchase without exiting your browser. Opening a new tab or returning later will result in rewards not tracking. Products not eligible for rewards are Mac Studio, Studio Display, MacBook Air (M2), MacBook Pro, Apple Pro Display XDR, gift cards, gift wrap, Apple Developer Programs, and shipping. Orders purchased on the Government or Veterans and Military Stores are not eligible for rewards. 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.

Bottom line

Today only it’s possible to earn up to 4x airline miles on purchases with Apple. We see an offer like this roughly once per month, so this is a great opportunity if you have any eligible purchases to make.

Anyone plan to take advantage of this Apple shopping portal bonus?

    I need some AirTags - every little bit helps. One Mile At A Time - amiright?

    Ben, if the purchase is made using the Apple Education discount, does it still qualify for 4x miles?

    1. Andrew Diamond

      They do, in my experience. Note that carve-outs for specific products, though. That's where they get you. :)

    Typically, when these kind of portal bonuses appear, do they still stay attached when the item purchased doesn't ship for several weeks?

      If you click through the portal and purchase the day and have the receipt, then you should be good. The portals seem to be good about their system tracking the multiplier for that day and making sure the points are correct.

    I was going to take advantage of it until I found out it excluded the MacBook Air M2.

      Exact same bummer for me too.
