Shopping portals can be a great way to earn some extra miles for shopping that you were already planning on doing.  Last month, nearly every shopping portal had a bonus miles promotion going on as part of Black Friday

New American Airlines holiday shopping portal bonus

I was doing some gift card purchases this afternoon on the American Airlines shopping portal and noticed that there appears to be a new holiday shopping portal bonus


Details are

  • Spend $100, get 300 bonus miles
  • Spend $300, get 1200 bonus miles

It’s for purchases made from 12/6 through 12/13 (Sunday).  I got this popup when just going to visit a store’s detail page on the American shopping portal page (specifically ebay)

Portal bonuses at other sites?

Since all of these shopping portal sites are run by the same company (called Cartera), I thought I would go to the other airlines’ sites, and see if there were any similar shopping portal bonuses.  I did not find any on Delta, Southwest or Alaska, but did find (almost) the same deal at the United shopping portal

  • Spend $100, get 300 bonus miles
  • Spend $300, get 1200 bonus miles

It’s for purchases made from 12/8 (Tuesday) through 12/15 (Tuesday) so it hasn’t technically started yet


Good luck and happy shopping out there!
