Earn 1,000 bonus miles for back-to-school shopping

In addition to paid travel and credit card sign-up bonuses, another great way to earn points is through shopping portals. For those of you who may not know, shopping portals give you additional points for buying products through them. We buy a lot of things online these days, why not be rewarded for it?

It’s back to school shopping season. Like UnitedAmerican and Southwest Airlines who are offering bonus miles for online shopping, Alaska Airline is joining the party by offering up to 1,000 bonus miles. The bonus is tiered:

  • 300 bonus miles when you spend $125;
  • 1,000 bonus miles when you spend $350;
  • promotion ends August 18, 2017.
  • simply go to MileagePlan Shopping here and start your shopping.

Earn 3,000 bonus miles with Take the Dash for Miles Challenge

Starting today, Alaska Airlines are also launching “Take the Dash for Miles Challenge” where you can score 1,000 bonus miles for each partner you earn with through September 30, 2017. The promotion requires registration which can be find here.a screenshot of a website

Dash for Miles Challenge Offer Terms & Conditions:

  • Limited time offer valid August 7, 2017 through September 30, 2017;
  • Mileage Plan™ members who register for this offer and complete at least one transaction with each of Mileage Plan Dining, Mileage Plan Shopping, and Miles for Surveys during the promotional period will receive 1,000 bonus Miles for each partner they earn with.
  • Registration is required prior to the first qualifying transaction.
  • Bonus Miles do not count towards Mileage Plan Elite Status.
  • Bonus Miles will be awarded within six weeks of the last qualifying transaction posting to a member’s account. 


Bonus miles are always nice, especially if they don’t require too much effort to obtain. It is interesting that Mileage Plan Shopping are included in both promotions. I think they will stack! I am going to register for the Take the Dash for Miles Challenge for my family’s accounts, and spread my kids’ back-to-school shopping to about $125 each. It should earn me 1,300 bonus miles for each account, without even leaving my house!
