Southwest Airlines is now also running a promotion with their online shopping portal where you can earn up to 1,000 miles by taking an extra minute and finding your online retailer through their site first. This is in addition to the 3,000 mile bonus with United, the 2,000 mile bonus with American, and the 2,000 bonus points with Southwest. If you are shopping online a bunch in the next few weeks, you could definitely rack up a ton of bonus points/miles for something you’d be doing anyways! This bonus goes through August 3, 2017.
- Spend at least $150 and earn 500 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 Delta), 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!
