Happy September 1st – a new month means that it is time for an update on shopping portal payouts!  Payouts don’t all change on the 1st, but some do go up or down with each new month.  Doing your online shopping via a shopping portal is an insanely easy way to really rack up the miles for purchases you were going to make anyway.

The numbers below show how many extra points or miles you will earn for your purchase.  For example, if you buy something for $100 from a portal that says it is paying out at that retailer for 12x then you will get 1200 extra miles or points for that purchase on top of the ones that you earn for using a credit card.  Some portals even have extra bonuses on top of that!  It can take a purchase that would have only earned a handful of points on the credit card to one that earns a significant number thanks to using an online portal.

You can often stack coupon codes, free shipping, or in-store pick-up on top of 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.

I will cover many of the top shopping portals, but my personal favorite is generally the Chase Ultimate Rewards portal.  In case you aren’t overly familiar with how the Chase Ultimate Rewards shopping portal works, then head to this post for detailed instructions.  While the Ultimate Rewards portal doesn’t always have the best payout (or the most retailers), they do seem to have some of the better customer service when something goes wrong with the points posting, so keep that in mind.

To access the Ultimate Rewards card you must have a card that earns Ultimate Rewards such as the Ink Plus® Business Card, Chase Freedom Visa, or Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card.

Ultimate Rewards:

Kohl’s 10x (this stacks with the third quarter 5x bonus category on the Chase Freedom for a total of 15x on that card up to the $1,500 quarterly limit!)

Staples 3x (this stacks with the 5x office supply store bonus category on the Ink Plus or Ink Bold for a total of 8x on that card)
