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 spend.
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.
The Alaska Mileage Plan shopping portal has just launched a new mystery bonus for online purchases. I’m a little confused, though — the bonuses are supposed to be targeted, so I figured you’d have to log-in before they show you the bonus, though I actually see them before logging in. So who really knows what’s going on here.
This promotion is valid for purchases between April 15 and April 19, 2019, and it appears that you can earn 500 bonus miles when you spend $200.
The bonus is based on cumulative spend during the promotion period, and bonus miles should post within 10 weeks of when the promotion ends. There’s no registration required to take advantage of this deal.
This can be a great way to stack a great deal with some bonus miles.
The above offer essentially earns you up to 2.5 additional miles per dollar spent online, in the right increments. These bonuses are on top of whatever miles are usually offered through the shopping portal, plus whatever points you earn through your credit card. That can really add up.
