Up To 13,500 Bonus Miles With New Airline Shopping Portal Bonuses

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.

Alaska, American, Southwest, and United, have all just introduced new bonuses for their online shopping portals, which can earn you thousands of bonus miles. Here are the details:

Bottom line

These are some solid bonuses if you’d be buying stuff online anyway. The bonus with each shopping portal 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 these deals.

You can take advantage of each offer once, so that means if you were spending a lot for online shopping you could earn up to 13,500 bonus miles. These bonuses are on top of whatever miles are usually offered through the shopping portals, plus whatever points you earn through your credit card. That can really add up.

With these offers you’re earning an average of about three bonus miles per dollar spent in certain increments. At a valuation of ~1.3 cents per point, that’s an incremental 4% return on online shopping.
