    I will be making purchases on Amazon.com and would like to get FF miles through an airline shopping portal. Do any airlines offer points for Amazon other than US Air? (I don't fly with US Air.)

    Thanks.

    By the way, I rarely fly US, but I like their miles nevertheless, since I can use them for tickets on lots of other airlines (via *A for example), including my primary carrier UA.

    Hawaiian's my preference because they're 2mi/$ & can be converted to HHonors points later if desired. I did make a cursory purchase through US Airways for a "hit."

    Wow, news to me (verified & true). If it wasn't for this community, I'd really know nothing :) For what it's worth, I think 1mi is still better than the 0.5mi/$ I saw yesterday on US.

    It really depends. I have zero Hawaiian miles and about 400k US miles. How long will it take me to build up a big enough balance with Hawaiian that's usable? As I understand it, I need 5000 miles for the transfer into 10k HHonors points. That would take quite a while even though I spend quite a bit on Amazon (but certainly not $5k worth.... If I did, I'd get the Amazon Visa, I think). I'd probably have to direct other earnings to my Hawaiian account to make it worthwhile before the next HHonors devaluation ;)

    Some folks would say that Hawaiian Miles are worth about half a US Air mile. :oops:

    I use the Amazon Visa and take my 3% rebate in cash once I have accumulated enough. No annual fee for the Amazon card.
