Our Take

You'll have to spend at least $3,800 between the Southwest, Delta, Alaska, United, and American Airlines shopping portals to earn the full 15,000 bonus points. That's going to be more than most consumers are probably planning to spend in the next couple of weeks. So, you'll want to focus on the shopping portals that earn the miles you're trying to accumulate for your next award.

A true points maximizer will also want to check a site like CashBackMonitor or Evreward to make sure there isn't a better portal bonus for the same retailer. In situations where the total number of bonus points is comparable, earning Membership Rewards through Rakuten (formerly Ebates) may be the highest value option for online purchases.

Another thing to keep in mind is that shopping portals are a great way to prevent your miles from expiring.

    this is great. with covid my family probably won’t plan have a trip any time sooner. I was just worried about where to use off all the miles that we accumulate. with holiday season coming up, good way to prepare some gifts. just the leadtime is a little bit long ….

  • Avatar

    So two weeks to see if there is some shopping to do and earn the bonus.
    I will think about.

  • Avatar

    This is so great! The portals are so easy to use and now are a great way to gain a bunch of extra points to use when things open back up!

  • Avatar

    My typical use case of shopping portals is to renew expiration dates. This is, well, a bonus 🙂

    American shopping portal is one of the best out there. It has a small glitch when buying through a mobile device but customer service is pretty good to allocate the missing miles.

  • Avatar

    Just in time for early Christmas shopping! And more people will be shopping online due to COVID restrictions. The only drawback will be if miles are devalued due to the extent of time travel has been restricted.

  • Avatar

    Love using shopping portals and getting to double dip! They used to allow the bonus on gift cards but does anyone know if gift cards still work for the shopping portals?

  • Avatar

    I use shopping portals as much as I can. It is always good to check beforehand which ones are offering the most points, if you are in multiple points programs. I have found checking cashbackmonitor helps me figure out which one would be the most lucrative for me. It even includes my favorite, the flexible points portals.

    I had all these emails come through but since I use these anyway it’s just a nice reminder. I quickly had signed up for the shopping buttons on another post ya’ll had and have been eagerly trying to boost my AS miles since. AS is a little harder to get miles up to higher numbers when you have more than 2 ppl traveling, so their shopping tab helps. I have also adding them to my Chrome to pop up when I go to a website that I can get miles on. Sometimes I can be forgetful ;o)

  • Avatar

    It never fails; they always post these promotions right after I make a large online purchase for the home. I don’t want to spend money just for the sake of spending to earn points bonuses, but it’s good to keep in mind should something come up in the next few weeks.

  • Avatar

    I use AA shopping portal to make small purchases at Home Depot all the time! I make the purchase online through the AA portal and select in store order pick up at customer service . I earn a few miles and I don’t have to wander the store looking for one item. Also, the miles from Home Depot always post very quickly! Thanks for this airline shopping portal run-down! SO helpful!

  • Avatar

    This is a good thing to take advantage of but there seems to be more and more of these at different times of the year. So if you miss this one, wait for the next one.

  • Avatar

    nice promos, indeed. Also good to check https://www.aadvantagedining.com

    This is great! I wish I can fly again soon.

    A year ago, we could not imagine that we would need to exclusively rely on shopping and dining to earn airline miles.

  • Avatar

    Ooh this is like a black Friday shopping portal special in July!

  • Avatar

    Nice to see bonuses even if minor ones.

  • Avatar

    This is really good, but American Airlines E-shop does not work in Argentina sadly

  • Avatar

    Thanks for this post. It would be interesting to read a parallel post for non-American airlines. Can you please recommend some options?

  • Avatar

    Thanks for the tip! looking forward to rack up more AA miles.

  • Avatar

    Thanks. Always good to have a reminder to use portals whenever possible. Also to check cashbackmonitor.com. It has proven very helpful.

  • Avatar

    GrubHub bonus is great for those staying at home during COVID and ordering more than usual.

  • Avatar

    Gotta love the shopping portal bonuses…they add up quite a bit.
    I already earned more than 5K miles from these websites this year.

  • Avatar

    Very helpful list!

  • Avatar

    It would be nice to publish another article to directly compare all the sites mentioned in this article.

    • Avatar

      They all run on the same backend, created by a company called Cartera — that’s why these promos always launch at the same time — and have consistent point levels. It’s just up to you which airline’s points you’d prefer.

  • Avatar

    Such an easy way to get extra points and keep FF accounts active if they expire. Just have to remember to go through the portals before buying things online!

    • Avatar

      Yes, AA still has not changed its expiration policy, though this website can delay the account expiration date.

    What a great way to get my shopping done without leaving the house. And miles awarded is a bonus!!

    i got the american airlines card and have been eshopping alot since pandemic. its a good deal. good information

  • Avatar

    Thanks for posting this. Sometimes you just don’t have enough points for a trip.

    • Avatar

      Just note that you might be waiting a while for the points to come through, so this probably isn’t the best option if you need points to make an immediate booking.

  • Avatar

    Always on the lookout for a shopping deal.

    American Airlines eShopping Portal is the plan that i always use!!

    Hello Award Wallet bloggers!

    Thank you for compiling both shopping portals. I always wanted to compare both bonuses programmes as a Delta and AAdvantage user.

    Another thing that is not mentioned in this post is that even though shopping portals are a great way to double-dip, keep in mind that these shopping portals tend to double rewards haul during holidays like Mother’s Day, Christmas and Valentine’s Day. So make sure you check them around those seasons to obtain even better bonus mile points 🙂
