Earning miles for online purchases is a great way to add to your mileage balance; you simply must you remember to visit an online shopping portal first. The rebates from airline portals aren’t always competitive with cashback websites such as Topcashback. But this can change when a bonus offer is available. Three such interesting offers are available now:
Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan
Alaska Mileage Plan Shopping is offering 500 bonus miles if you spend $200+ through the portal before Wednesday, June 22, 2022.
American Airlines AAdvantage
American AAdvantage eShopping is offering 500 bonus miles if you spend $200+ through the portal before Friday, June 17, 2022.
United Airlines Mileage Plus
United MileagePlus Shopping is offering up to 1,000 bonus miles if you spend $300+ through the portal before Friday, June 24, 2022.
You earn 500 bonus miles for spending $100 and another 500 bonus miles (for a total of 1,000 miles) for spending $300.
How to Easily Meet the Spend Targets
The easiest way to meet spending targets is to book a hotel stay via the shopping portal.
Marriott is now available through Alaska Mileage Plan’s shopping portal. You can earn 1 mile per $ spent. The same applies to the United shopping portal.
The question comes up occasionally, so I’ll be as clear as possible. When you use a cashback website or airline shopping portal to click through to a hotel chain website, you are definitely booking DIRECT and qualifying to earn points, elite status credit, etc.
And, naturally, you don’t have to actually stay at the hotel during the period of the bonus mile promotion. What matters is the date of making the reservation…
