In the last few weeks we really have seen online shopping portals spring back to life with some increased payouts and bonuses. The American Airlines shopping portal is offering up to 2,250 bonus miles and now the Southwest Rapid Rewards shopping portal is offering blocks of bonus points for those who make cumulative purchases of certain amounts from 4/13/15 – 5/3/15.
Spend $125 get 500 bonus points
Spend $300 get 1,000 bonus points
Spend $750 or more and get 2,500 bonus points
These points are on top of whatever the payout is for your selected retailer, and on top of whatever payout your credit card awards you for your purchases.
Here is a sampling of some current retailer specific payouts via the Rapid Rewards shopping portal.
