American Airlines is running a promotion with their online shopping portal where you can earn 500 miles by taking an extra minute and finding your online retailer through their site first. Spend $200, earn 500 AAdvantage bonus miles. While this isn’t as lucrative as some other promotions in the past, it is still a quick and easy way to earn some extra miles if you happen to be shopping online over the next few days anyways. This promotion runs through January 18, 2017.
What is an online shopping portal?
For those not familiar with an online shopping portal, essentially you go through the shopping portal first (in this case American’s), search for your online merchant, and you’ll then be taken directly to that merchants online website. At that point, you’ll shop how you normally would as if you went to the merchants site to begin with. It literally takes an extra minute and allows you to earn points or miles on the way. The bonus described above is for cumulative spend and doesn’t need to be in a single transaction.
Enjoy your bonus points!
