This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here. Additionally, some of the offers on this page may no longer be available through Deals We Like.

Both American and Delta have announced bonus promotions by shopping online via their shopping portal. With both airlines you can earn up to 2,500 bonus miles. With American you only need to spend $250 to get the full 2,500 bonus miles, while with the Delta promotion you need to spend $1,150 to get the full bonus! Obviously the American promotion is better, but also consider the number of miles you earn per dollar spent. Each portal offers a different number of miles per dollar spent.

The bonus miles are after a cumulative amount of spend in $115 increments, each purchase does not have to be $115+. Miles can take 8-10 weeks to post. Thanks to Points, Miles, and Martinis for sharing this promotion!

  1. In Sept, American had a promotion if you spent $35 or more through their shopping portal you received a 2,000 mile bonus. I’m still waiting for that!!!!

  2. The T&C say

    Returns, shipping, taxes, gift card purchases, and certain products are not eligible for bonus;

    does that mean if you use a gift card to buy something or if you buy gift cards via the shopping portal?

  3. Kathleen, I remember that promo but I think it was for a $50 purchase. Well, I made that purchase as well and still haven’t gotten the bonus points. It’s been 2 full months now.

  4. Same here. I finally had to email them with my order number and get it credited. And yes, it was for $35 or over. I was waiting since September. Apparently, AA separates themselves from the AA shopping mall.
