I have had rewards credit cards offer limited time bonuses in certain categories many times before, but this may be the first time I have gotten such a high bonus offer for one specific store. Via an email I received yesterday, my US Airways MasterCard is paying out 15x US Airways miles at Petsmart both online or in-store from December 15 – January 14th. This may be a targeted offer, but check your email for the subject line “Limited Time Offer: You Could Save 15x at Petsmart” if the bonus may help your family earn some extra miles.
Clearly 15x is a big bonus that adds up quickly, especially when you have a big dog that eats big amounts of pricey dog food. This would stack with the payouts in shopping portals to potentially take your earning even higher. I have seen Petsmart as high as 8x in the portals recently, though the highest level I see today is 4x via the AAdvantage Shopping portal. That means earning a total of 19x on some of life’s exciting purchases like dog kibble. $100 in pet supplies could quickly and easily turn into 1,900 airline miles by taking advantage of the 15x offer and going through a portal.
Taking advantage of these sort of opportunities as they come along is how my family turns every day purchases into amazing miles and points fueled vacations.
Did you get an offer like this from your US Airways card?
