Mileage shopping portals are a great way of getting bonus miles for purchases that you’re going to make anyways. Rather than going directly to the store’s website, just a few more clicks through a shopping portal can earn you hundreds — if not thousands — of additional points. In fact, shopping through a portal is so useful that it earns the #6 spot on our Essential Travel Tips for beginners.

And, today, we have some good news for travelers seeking Avios: Now through May 31, British Airways’ shopping portal is awarding 3x the standard earning rate.

My favorite Avios redemption so far was transferring 25,500 BA Avios to Iberia Avios at 1:1 and booking Iberia’s excellent premium economy product from New York’s JFK to Madrid (MAD) — netting me a 12+ cent per Avios value on the last-second booking on the inaugural flight.

It’s wild to think that you need to spend just $1,063 at either eBags or Sunglass Hut to earn enough Avios for a one-way premium economy flight to Europe!
