Still have yet to buy that special someone their Valentine’s Day gift? You could be in luck thanks to several new airline shopping portal promotions. So, not only could you walk away with that gift, but also some bonus miles to help top off your mileage account.
With three airlines — Alaska, American and United — offering shopping portal bonuses for the winter, you could earn up to 1,200 bonus miles for a limited time.
Alaska Airlines is offering members of its Mileage Plan program the opportunity to earn 400 bonus miles for spending through its online shopping portal. As part of the Winter Bonus promotion, you can earn 400 bonus Alaska miles for spending $200.
Based on TPG’s most recent valuations, those 400 bonus miles are worth $7.20. Plus, you’ll earn miles for each dollar spent with the retailers on the way to meeting the minimum $200 in spend. You must meet the spending requirement on the shopping portal by Feb. 17, 2019, at 11:59pm ET in order to get the bonus miles.
Earn bonus American Airlines AAdvantage miles during the Winter Bonus promotion. In all, you can earn 400 bonus miles for spending $200 through the carrier’s online shopping portal.
This promotion isn’t tiered, meaning you’ll get the 400 bonus miles for spending $200. You’ll earn the miles based on cumulative purchases made by Feb. 17, 2019, at 11:59pm ET. Based on TPG’s most recent valuations, the 400-mile bonus is worth $5.60. Keep in mind, too, that you’ll also earn bonus miles for each dollar spent on those purchases.
Like American and Alaska, United is also offering its MileagePlus members the opportunity to earn 400 bonus miles. As part of the Winter Bonus promotion, you can get the 400 bonus miles after spending $200 through the United shopping portal.
Based on TPG’s most recent valuations, the 400 United miles are worth $5.60. Like with the other promotions, you’ll earn the 400 bonus miles if you spend $200 on cumulative purchases by Feb. 17, 2019, at 11:59pm ET.
Use the Right Credit Card
When shopping online, you’ll want to make sure you use a credit card that has high earn rates on non-bonus spend. The Chase Freedom Unlimited, Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card and The Blue Business℠ Plus Credit Card from American Express are great options, but make sure to read our guide The Best Credit Cards for Everyday Spending to see which cards will maximize your returns for online purchases.
