American Airlines is running a promotion through their online shopping portal where you can earn up to 2,000 bonus miles by taking an extra minute and finding your online retailer through their site first. This promotion is slightly different than previous offers we’ve seen in the past. For every $75 you spend, you’ll receive 500 bonus miles, up to 2,000 miles. The money spent, however, is not cumulative and your single purchase must be $75+ to earn the miles. You also must register for this offer to earn the bonus miles (which is unique to this type of offer). This bonus goes through September 16, 2019.
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 an extra minute and allows you to earn points or miles on the way.
Always check out Evreward.com to see what other shopping portals are awarding. While the 500 bonus miles are great, you might find another portal paying out more making the bonus not as valuable.
