Four Online Airline Mileage Bonuses!

Certain times of the year are popular seasons for the various online shopping portals to start throwing out bonus miles and points to complete for your online shopping dollars.  One of those times of the year is right now as many folks are stocking up on back to school and fall goods.

I pretty much never recommend buying buying things just for the miles or points, but I do recommend timing certain purchases with increased mileage payouts when possible.  So, if you were about to have to purchase new kids’ shoes, school clothes, etc. then you might as well do it now and take advantage of increased payouts, retailer sales, and even tax free weekends (which is this weekend for my fellow Texas shoppers – and you can do it online).

Keep in mind that the mileage amounts shown below are earned on top of any miles and points paid out by your rewards credit cards that you use to pay for your purchases, so you can potentially bump up earnings by paying with cards that have their own category bonuses such as 5x at Kohl’s via 3rd quarter purchases on the Chase Freedom®  and 5% cash back via 3rd quarter purchases at department stores on Discover cards.

With that in mind, here are four different online shopping portal bonuses you can pick from as you complete your shopping to-do lists.
