I’m working on a larger post about earning miles and points while doing online back to school shopping that is scheduled for the morning, but in the meantime, I wanted to share some specific back to school promos I have run across in researching that post. I think the United promo is clearly the most lucrative, though it is capped at $75. It is certainly the one I would work on first if it were me, since 500 miles is worth about $10 plus you can earn additional miles for the purchase on top of that bonus.
Earn 500 bonus United miles when you spend $75 via their portal by 8/18/13.
Spend a cumulative total in the portal by 8/28/13 and earn the following bonus points.
$100 = 200 bonus points
$200 = 400 bonus points
$400 = 800 bonus points
Get 250 bonus miles for every $100 spent via SkyMiles shopping through 8/31/13, up to 2,500 bonus miles.
Let me know if you run across additional promos for back to school shopping and stay tuned for a more comprehensive post scheduled for the morning!
