New Airline Shopping Portal Bonuses Offer Up To 6,060 Bonus Miles

Filed Under: Alaska, American

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 6,060 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. If you’re going to make online purchases anyway, you might as well take advantage of these offers.

Do note that unlike how these offers usually work:

  • You need to register for these promos
  • The bonus miles you earn are based on your spending in each transaction, rather than your cumulative spending with a given portal

With that in mind, here’s what you need to know about these offers:

American AAdvantage eShopping bonus

American AAdvantage eShopping is offering up to 2,020 bonus miles on purchases through May 18, 2020 (registration required):

  • Earn 500 bonus miles for each $50+ purchase, for up to four purchases
  • If you make four purchases of $50+ each, you’ll earn an additional 20 bonus miles, for a total of 2,020 bonus miles

United MileagePlus Shopping bonus

United MileagePlus Shopping is offering up to 2,020 bonus miles on purchases through May 19, 2020 (registration required):

  • Earn 500 bonus miles for each $50+ purchase, for up to four purchases
  • If you make four purchases of $50+ each, you’ll earn an additional 20 bonus miles, for a total of 2,020 bonus miles

Alaska Mileage Plan Shopping bonus

Alaska Mileage Plan Shopping is offering up to 2,020 bonus miles on purchases through May 19, 2020 (registration required):

  • Earn 500 bonus miles for each $75+ purchase, for up to four purchases
  • If you make four purchases of $75+ each, you’ll earn an additional 20 bonus miles, for a total of 2,020 bonus miles

Bottom line

Between these three promotions you can earn up to 6,060 bonus miles. You can take advantage of each of these three promotions, and this promotion is based on how many individual purchases you make, as you can potentially earn bonuses for a total of up to 12 transactions.

The bonus miles should post within 10 weeks of when the promotions end.

If you make purchases in the right increments you could be earning up to an additional 10x miles per dollar, not even factoring in the miles usually being offered through the shopping portals, plus the miles you usually earn through credit card spending (make sure you’re using the best credit cards for everyday spending). That can really add up.

For all of these promotions taxes, fees, shipping, and handling, don’t count towards the $50-75 spending requirements.

Comments
  1. AS link is working for me fine. I have to say not a big fan of these multiple smaller offers. Too much effort. I’ll likely sit these out.

  2. Only a few days to do it in and gift cards are not applicable per the aa site. Not enough time and other than home depot, what else do people need right now from the limited merchants they have?
