This is a very popular time of the year for shopping thanks to back to school needs, as well as stocking up on summer clearance items for next year. Or at least that is what I like to buy in August… Anyway, if you have some online shopping to do then you might as well earn bonus miles for it. I recently did a post that listed lots of different shopping portal bonuses, as well as some general tips on using shopping portals for those who are new to the concept.
However, just today a new 1,000 mile bonus from American Airlines AAdvantage shopping has been released, so here are details on that new offer as well as recap on the other shopping portal bonuses that are still available.
Earn 1,000 bonus American Airlines AAdvantage miles for spending a cumulative $200 in the AAdvantage eShopping portal from 8/17/14 to 8/25/14 11:59 PM EST. Returns, shipping, taxes, gift card purchases, and certain products are not eligible for bonus.
Let’s say you needed $200 in school clothes from JCPenney for your kiddos, and you made that purchase via this promo. You would earn the 6x at JCPenney via the AAdvantage promo (as of 8/17) plus an additional 1,000 miles for a total of 2,200 miles for your $200 purchase just for going through the shopping portal. This is in addition to the miles you would earn by paying with a rewards earning credit card.
Other current shopping portal bonuses:
Bonus: From 7/14/14 through 8/31/ receive 500 bonus miles with every $125 spent online through MileagePlus Shopping; up to 2,000 bonus miles.
Bonus: From July 21, 2014 – August 31, 2014 receive a one-time bonus of up to 1,000 bonus points in addition to the standard points earned from Rapid Rewards Shopping. Bonus points will be issued based on cumulative spending: 250 bonus points for $150; 500 bonus points for $300; 750 bonus points for $450; and 1,000 bonus points for $600 or more.
Bonus: From 7/14/14 through 8/31/14 11:59 receive 250 bonus miles with every $150 spent online through SkyMiles Shopping. Spend $150, earn 250 bonus miles, spend $300, earn 500 bonus miles, spend $450, earn 750 bonus miles, spend $600, earn 1000 bonus miles.
