American is running a promotion through their online shopping portal where you can earn 500 miles by taking an extra minute and finding your online retailer through their site first. All you have to do is spend a total of $200 through the portal by April 30, 2017.
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 takes about 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!
