The huge airline mileage shopping bonuses are continuing this week, with the American AAdvantage shopping portal leading the charge with some increased bonuses to stores that rarely offer increased bonus mileage offers, such as Apple.


Until 11/8/2017, Apple is paying out at 6x AAdvantage miles per dollar spent via the AAdvantage Shopping site. This is great news if there is a new Apple gadget you have been meaning to order, though unfortunately the iPhone X, Apple Watch Series 3 and Apple TV 4K are listed as not eligible. Typically Apple excludes the most recent product releases from the portal payouts for a few months.

If nothing at Apple is on your shopping list, the AAdvantage portal has also increased payouts at these retailers:

  • eBags 20x through 11/12/17
  • Land’s End 12x through 11/12/17
  • Macy’s 10x through 11/12/17
  • Saks Fifth Avenue 10x through 11/12/17

These offers also stack with earning up to 4,000 bonus AAdvantage miles for cumulative purchases made via AAdvantage Shopping from October 30 – November 19, 2017.

If United miles are more your style, then United also has the following increased retailers available this week:

  • Macys 10x
  • Saks Fifth Avenue 12x
  • Land’s End 10x
  • eBags 20x

Those amounts will also stack with United’s holiday shopping bonus of up to 5,000 bonus United miles.

On top of all of that, if you shop at a department store such as Saks.com or Macys.com and pay for your order with a Chase Freedom that has activated the 4th quarter 5x bonus of department stores (up to $1,500 quarterly max), then you are now in some pretty crazy mileage earning territory.

I’d love to hear more about your holiday shopping strategy as it relates to racking up miles and points!
