Tomorrow, August 18, 2017, four really good promotions are coming to an end! If you are doing any online shopping between today and tomorrow, you can earn up to 8,000 bonus miles amongst four different airline programs. Just make sure to spend that extra minute prior to your shopping and go through the airlines shopping portal first.
Here are the four offers where you can earn bonus miles just by shopping online!
- Southwest Airlines: Earn up to 2,00 points
- United: Earn up to 3,000 miles
- American Airlines: Earn up to 2,000 miles
- Alaska Airlines: Earn up to 1,000 miles
To earn the maximum number of miles requires you to spend a total of $2,000 ($550 with Southwest, $600 with United, $500 with American, and $350 with Delta). Clearly, this is not a small amount of money, but if you have some big purchases quickly approaching, I suggest seeing if you can maximize all four portal bonuses to earn as many bonus miles as possible. Or, just focus on earning the maximum amount of points with one airline where you typically accrue your points. You can also earn slightly less miles for less spend! Remember, these bonuses are also in additional to the normal miles you’d receive anyways by going through one of the online shopping portal sites first.
What is an online shopping portal?
I know for many people, the concept of an online shopping portal is extremely foreign. However, I want to ensure you that it is an extremely simple process and literally takes an extra minute to complete your shopping purchase. If you are not familiar with these portals, they are an online website that you go to first, search for the store, and then you are taken directly to the desired merchants website. You then continue to shop at that merchant the same exact was as if you went to the site first. Your purchase is tracked in the background and you’ll then earn points, miles, or cash back (depending on the site used) for your purchase. There is absolutely no reason not to earn these extra points/miles or free money!
