What is an online shopping portal?
Online shopping portals are third-party websites that allow you to earn points and miles for your purchase. All you do is go to the site first, search for the retailer you are looking to shop for, and then you’ll be taken directly to that merchants website. You’ll then shop online as you normally would as if you went straight to the merchants site first. In the background your purchase will track and you’ll earn points, miles, or cash back (depending on the portal) for the dollars spent. It really takes no extra time (maybe a minute at most) and it is free. The bonus points are then on top of the normal miles you are earning. Every merchant offers a different number as miles and it can change day to day.
If you are planning on doing any shopping over the next few weeks, this is a great opportunity to earn free American Airlines miles. Earning 2,000 bonus miles is worth about an extra $35.
