Over the past few weeks I’ve written about some amazing bonus offers by going through an online shopping portal to do all your shopping online. Currently, there are three offers that I know about:
- Southwest: Earn up to 3,00 points; expires November 20th
- United: Earn up to 5,000 points; expires November 20th
- American Airlines: Earn up to 5,000 miles; expires November 20th
To earn the maximum number of points/miles does require a decent amount of online spend – $4,000 to be exact! But, if you have some large purchases you are looking to make, I highly suggest you take these bonus offers into consideration. These bonuses are also in additional to the normal miles you’d receive anyways by going through one of the online shopping portal sites first.
What is an online shopping portal?
I know for many people, the concept of an online shopping portal is extremely foreign. However, I want to ensure you that it is an extremely simple process and literally takes an extra minute to complete your shopping purchase. If you are not familiar with these portals, they are an online website that you go to first, search for the store, and then you are taken directly to the desired merchants website. You then continue to shop at that merchant the same exact was as if you went to the site first. Your purchase is tracked in the background and you’ll then earn points, miles, or cash back (depending on the site used) for your purchase. There is absolutely no reason not to earn these extra points/miles or free money!
