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. One new airline shopping portal promotion has just been launched.
The Alaska Mileage Plan Shopping portal is offering 500 bonus miles when you spend $200 by June 26, 2019.
This isn’t the only shopping portal bonus, though. Since last week, and through June 23, 2019, the United MileagePlus Shopping portal is offering 500 bonus miles when you spend at least $150, and 1,000 bonus miles when you spend at least $300.
The bonuses are 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 the offers from each portal once.
This can be a great way to stack a great deal with some bonus miles.
The above offer essentially earns you up to ~2.5-3.3 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.
