The airline shopping portals are back for the holidays, and you stand to earn a nice bonus on your shopping!  (That is, if you were planning on spending the money anyway, don’t let them convince you to part with your hard-earned cash for stuff you don’t need.)

These shopping portal bonuses come around every few months, and offer a great way to juice your mile balances.  Last time we saw one was in August for the back to school season.  This time, I got emails from Southwest, United, and Alaska Airlines, though it looks like Delta and American are also offering bonuses.

These are super easy to use.  You don’t have to sign up for anything, just shop through your favorite airline’s shopping portal like you usually would, and they’ll give you a nice boost to your earnings.  The usual items are excluded from earning:  “returns, cancellations, shipping and handling, taxes, gift card or other cash equivalent purchases, and certain products that are not eligible for bonus miles.”  Otherwise, have fun!
