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.
Three airline shopping portals have just announced new bonuses for online purchases.
Alaska, American, and United, have all just introduced new bonuses for their online shopping portals, which can earn you up to 1,200 bonus miles. Here are the details:
Between February 8 and February 17, 2019, earn 400 bonus Mileage Plan miles when you spend $200.
Between February 8 and February 17, 2019, earn 400 bonus AAdvantage miles when you spend $200.
Between February 8 and February 17, 2019, earn 400 bonus MileagePlus miles when you spend $200.
This can be a great way to stack a great deal with some bonus miles.
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 $600 for online shopping you could earn up to 1,200 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 up to an additional two airline miles per dollar spent, which is pretty good.
