Making online purchases through airline or hotel shopping portals is an easy way to earn bonus miles, points, or cash back. Especially if you prefer online shopping like me!
Plus, most airlines and hotels have their own shopping portals. So you have many choices when deciding which one to use!
I’ll share some of my favorite current shopping portal bonuses and offers.
Airline & Cash Back Bonus Offers
Here is a look at some current shopping portal bonus offers.
With back-to-school shopping coming up, many airline shopping portals are offering bonuses after meeting certain spending requirements. These bonus points are in addition to miles you’ll earn per dollar of spending.
I wrote about the potential to earn up to 2,000 United Airlines miles when you spend $1,000+ on eligible purchases by August 12, 2016.
Southwest is offering bonuses for purchases made by August 15, 2016:
- 250 Southwest points when you spend $150
- 750 Southwest points when you spend $500
- 2,500 Southwest points when you spend $1,500
And Alaska Airlines has a bonus offer for purchases made by August 14, 2016:
- 400 Alaska Airlines miles when you spend $200
- 1,500 Alaska Airlines miles when you spend $750
Other airline portals may have similar back-to-school bonus offers coming up including:
Cash Back Deals
There’s also a promotion on Discover Deals to earn 5% cash back on online purchases at Apple. This means big savings if you’re purchasing a new computer or device.
Remember, if you pay with the Discover It card, Discover will match all the cash back you’ve earned at the end of your first year, for new card members only. So new cardholders could get 10% cash back on your Apple purchase!
Fat Wallet also found a targeted Amazon offer to earn $5 when you reload your Amazon gift card with $100+. Just log into your Amazon account to see if you’re eligible!
Let me know if you find other good shopping portal deals!
