Halloween may still be a day away, but the 2017 holiday airline shopping bonuses have already arrived! Most of us probably see an uptick in our online shopping totals this time of the year, so we might as well get a bunch of airline miles for our efforts by going through one of the airline shopping portals to earn potentially thousands of bonus miles.

 

For those not familiar with this process, you can earn one of these holiday shopping bonuses per airline shopping portal, so if you spent $750 from today through November 19th in the United shopping portal you would earn 2,500 bonus miles. You would not earn the 500 mile and 2,500 mile bonuses. However, you would still earn the regular number of miles per dollar from your selected retailer(s), and that can add up very quickly. Right now I see Shoes.com at 15x United miles per dollar, eBags at 15x American AAdvantage miles per dollar, and Barnes and Noble at 8x miles per dollar via both American and United. You will also earn the miles or points from paying with your rewards credit card of choice. In other words, you can easily turn your holiday shopping into thousands and thousands of easy miles and points by going through these shopping portals and paying with a rewards earning credit card.

  1. I’m a native San Franciscan who loves to see the Dodgers lose, but it is great how the Astros are giving Houstonians something to be happy about. Hope they wrap it up tonight; not sure I can endure another game like Sunday’s. Bring that beautiful trophy to Houston!

  2. I love to see these bonus payouts. I didn’t see Boxed under American or United Shopping which is a bummer since there is an Amex offer. Has anyone here heard who is going to have the new iPhones at the best deal around the holidays? I’m looking to get the new iPhone 8. Thanks for any info on that.
