Alaska Airlines is running a promotion with their online shopping portal where you can earn 1,000 miles by taking an extra minute and finding your online retailer through their site first. The spend to earn these miles is really low as well, so earning these miles should be relatively easy, if you are an online shopper that is! This promotion is in addition to the American Airlines online shopping portal offer where you can earn 1,500 bonus miles and the United Airlines online shopping portal offer where you can earn 1,000 bonus miles! If you plan on doing a bunch of online shopping over the next few years, you can take advantage of all three offers and earn up to 3,5000 bonus points! This particular offer expires April 12, 2017 (while the other two expire April 14, 2017).
- Spend at least $150 and earn 300 bonus miles
- Spend at least $350 and earn 1,000 bonus miles
For those not familiar with an online shopping portal, essentially you go through the shopping portal first (in this case Alaska Airline’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 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!
