Currently the only shopping portal offering bonus points on purchases is American Airlines, with their “Spring Bonus” promotion.
American Airlines Spring Bonus Promotion
This bonus runs from now until March 17th, and gives you 300 bonus American Airlines points when you spend $150 and 1,000 bonus American Airlines points when you spend $350. That’s not as great as their promotion earlier in the year (spend $300 and earn 1,000 bonus points), but a bonus is a bonus, and if you planning on making a large purchase, it may make sense to buy through the American Airlines eShopping portal to earn more points.
On the promotion landing page, the website also gives you some sample places where you can shop and earn even more points per dollar on your portal purchases.
If you spend all $350 required at Nike, for instance, you’ll earn 7 points per dollar (2,450 points) plus the 1,000 points for the promotion, for a total of 3,450 points!
Will you be earning these bonus points? Do you take advantage of these shopping portal bonuses in general? Let us know below!
