Earn 10x Miles Over 4th of July Weekend by Shopping

In addition to lots of fireworks and red, white, and blue being on display over the 4th of July weekend, there are also lots of sales happening in the retail world.  As retailers compete for your cash, the online miles and points portals often up the mileage payouts at some retailers to entice you to make your purchases using their portal.  This means increased mileage payouts up to 10x miles at many popular retailers this weekend!

This means if you spent $100 on a retailer offering 10x miles via a mileage portal you would earn 1,000 airline miles for a purchase you were going to make anyway, which is great!  This is on top of whatever miles or points the credit card you use will offer.  You can often stack coupon codes, free shipping, or in-store pick-up on top of the points or miles earned for shopping through a portal, but that isn’t always the case.  I recommend getting the best deal possible for an item first, and then worry about the miles and points second.  Usually you can do both at the same time.

Here is a sampling of some of the higher than average payouts currently available.

If pure cash back is more your style right now, Ebates is offering “double cash back” at many retailers this weekend.  Before making any substantial online purchase I would take a look at Cashback Monitor and compare the payout rates from many portals at once.

Ebates Double Cash Back

Looking forward, I expect that as we inch toward “Back to School Shopping” that we will see increased mileage payouts from related clothing, shoe, and school supply retailers and likely even some site-wide bonus miles promos from the various portals.

Have you had any big payouts from doing your shopping online recently?

  1. I sure hope gift cards count for the Macy’s AA miles. $500 for 5000 miles. Enough for an inter-island flight.
