  1. Thanks for posting! Another great offer right now is FTD, which is offering 30x points/$1 on American and 20x points/$1 on Delta! Not really “holiday” shopping, but everyone has an excuse to gift flowers, right? Also offering 10x points/$1 through Ultimate Rewards and a few others.

  2. I’m still comparing my usual shopping needs (dog food, toothpaste, etc.) to see how to maximize. I also don’t care about Southwest points right now. Not a huge Delta collector so it boils down to UA and AA. United seems to have a few sweet spots on the spending at around $400 or $700 but the vendors I use a lot like Petco, Walmart and Drugstore.com are a bit better on the spending at AA overall. Tough call still.

  3. Are the bonuses for certain stores or all spend through the portal? For instance, with AA do you have to buy Backcountry items or anything you buy at AA counts towards the 450/2000/5000 bonus points?


  4. I’m waiting this out until I see higher earn for diapers.com and Carter’s, since I’m trying to double dip with several current Amex Offers. As of today, both AA’s and United’s shopping portal are only offering 1 point for diapers.com and Carter’s purchase. So not worth it for me today, but I’ll keep checking every day…

  5. Be advised, many retailers will be starting Black Friday deals on Thanksgiving Day and some will have all of the brick & mortar deals available online as well (e.g. Walmart). So since these bonus offers are good through Thanksgiving this could be a great opportunity!
