United MileagePlus Shopping

United Shopping Portal Info

The United MileagePlus Shopping portal isn't currently offering a reward for spending. However, the MileagePlus Shopping portal is offering bonuses for new members. General United MileagePlus members will earn 500 bonus miles after spending $125 in the next two weeks.

The deal is even better for United MileagePlus Credit Cardholders. Cardholders will earn 1,000 bonus miles after spending $150 in the next two weeks. The terms and conditions don't list which United MileagePlus credit cards are eligible. So, it's likely that all United cards—both current and legacy cards—are eligible. This includes cards like United℠ Explorer Card, United℠ Business Card, and United Club℠ Infinite Card

Key Terms

  • These bonuses are only available to new members of the MileagePlus Shopping site
  • You'll receive a welcome email from MileagePlus Shopping with the specific expiration date for this Bonus Offer
  • Member must login and make the qualifying purchase(s) through the Site during the Bonus Period
  • Please allow up to 10 weeks for Bonus Award Miles to post to your MileagePlus Shopping account
  • “Qualifying purchases” do not include product returns or cancellations, gift card purchases, and certain products identified by the individual merchant.

American Airlines eShopping Portal

The American Airlines eShopping portal isn't currently offering a reward for spending. However, it's currently paying higher rates than normal at selected stores, such as:

  • Restaurant.com: 20X AAdvantage miles (formerly 7X)
  • GrubHub: 10X AAdvantage miles (formerly 2X)
  • Backcountry: 7X AAdvantage miles (formerly 5X)
  • UnderArmor: 7X AAdvantage miles (formerly 5X)
  • HelloFresh: 2,000 AAdvantage miles (formerly 750 miles)

Delta SkyMiles Shopping Portal

The Delta SkyMiles Shopping portal isn't currently offering a reward for spending. However, it's currently paying higher rates than normal at selected stores, such as:

  • Macy's: 2X SkyMiles (formerly 1X)
  • Backcountry: 5X SkyMiles (formerly 3X)
  • Lookfantastic: 5X SkyMiles (formerly 1X)
  • Patagonia: 4X SkyMiles (formerly 2X)
  • Overnight Prints: 6X SkyMiles (formerly 1X)

Some Thoughts on These Deals

For the Alaska bonus, the 500 bonus miles will be awarded once you reach $200, and you don't get more bonus miles for additional purchases. Thus, you can maximize this deal by keeping your purchases just above $200. While 500 bonus miles isn't enough to earn you a free flight, it's a nice bonus if you're shopping online anyway.

However, the true points maximizer will 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.

    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 🙂

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

  • Always on the lookout for a shopping deal.

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

  • 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!

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

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

  • Very helpful list!

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

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

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

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

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