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.
Earn 1,200 bonus miles with three portal bonuses
At the moment three popular airline shopping portals are offering additional bonuses, should you have any online shopping to do. These aren’t the most exciting bonuses we’ve seen, though if you’re going to make online purchases anyway, you might as well take advantage of them.
Here’s what you need to know about these offers:
Alaska Mileage Plan Shopping bonus
Alaska Mileage Plan Shopping is offering 400 bonus miles when you spend $200 on purchases by February 17, 2020.
American AAdvantage eShopping bonus
American AAdvantage eShopping is offering 400 bonus miles when you spend $200 on purchases by February 17, 2020.
United MileagePlus Shopping bonus
United MileagePlus Shopping is offering 400 bonus miles when you spend $200 on purchases by February 17, 2020.
Between these three promotions you can earn up to 1,200 bonus miles. You can take advantage of each of these three promotions, and for each promotion the bonus is based on cumulative spending during the promotion period, so you can earn the bonuses based on multiple transactions.
There’s no registration required, and the bonus miles should post within 10 weeks of when the promotions end.
The above offers can earn you up to an additional two 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 (make sure you’re using the best credit cards for everyday spending). That can really add up.
