Most of you might be feeling the holiday hangover right now (and you wallet probably is too!). Still, the airlines want us to keep shopping for the new year, and what better way to ring in the new year than with a few bonus miles. Shopping portal bonuses come around every few months, and right now you have the opportunity to snag an extra 1,000 miles with Alaska, American, and United!
Here’s the important Stuff:
All of the bonus offers are identical, so here are the details:
- Spend $150, earn 500 bonus miles (3.33x bonus miles)
- Spend $300, earn 1,000 bonus miles (3.33x bonus miles)
- Must make a qualifying purchase between January 2nd and January 10th.
Here are the links to the promotions:
What do I need the extra miles for?
American Airlines is a mixed bag, while there’s no doubt the miles are valuable, they’re also very easy to get for many of us. Still, if you can snag an extra 1,000 AAdvantage miles with virtually no effort, why not?
United and Alaska miles tend to be a better bang for your buck, but for different reasons. United’s award chart makes great use of stopovers, zones, and open jaws. (Check out this awesome post on the United Island Hopper from Travel Codex.) The Alaska Airlines chart offers some fantastic partner awards. The award chart itself is easy to navigate, but sometimes we wish they were more specific!
If you’re a regular over at Cashback Monitor, be sure to add this into your calculations when online shopping.
