The easy miles you can earn by adding one simple step to your online shopping process are changing super quickly these days, and I’m committed to keeping you in the loop as possible.  Here is a round-up of some of the current portal bonuses, plus some temporarily increased payouts in the portals.  Remember that all of this stacks, so if you needed a $175 in purchase from Macy’s you could go through the Southwest portal to earn 8x (1,400 points) on the purchase + 300 bonus points for spending $175 in the portal + 5x points if you paid with the Chase Freedom since it is giving 5x (875 points) at department stores this quarter.  That means the $175 Macy’s online holiday purchase could net you 2,575 points that you otherwise would have left on the table if you didn’t use a little bit of strategy.

  1. will the southwest bonus points post in Dec or Jan and count for the companion pass ? payment due date is 1/3/15 will they post then or now?

    • Lisa, points from the shopping portal are separate from any payment date on your credit card. The 8x miles you earn from Macy’s should count for the CP, but I’m not sure about the 300 point bonus in my example. At this point they would likely post for 2014 if I had to guess.
