Maximizing The Promotions

With so many promotions you need to do some research to maximize your earnings. Use a site like evreward.com, to determine how many miles per dollar you will earn for your purchase with the various shopping portals. For instance, if you want to purchase an item from Overstock, your best option would be going through the AA shopping portal.

Going through the AA portal would earn you 3 miles per dollar, while the other portals would earn you 2 miles per dollar.

Our Take

Holiday season shopping promotions are a great way to boost your mileage balances with various airline programs. Remember to shop around since it is pointless to pay over the odds to pick up some bonus miles, and make sure to go through the portals that maximize your earnings for every purchase.

AwardWallet Tip of The Day
Did you know that you have a personal referral link in your AwardWallet profile? If you invite people to AwardWallet using your referral link, you will receive an AwardWallet upgrade coupon for every five members you invite. Also, if these users ever purchase an upgrade, we will credit your AwardWallet account with AwardWallet Bonus points, which can be redeemed for points and miles in your program of choice. We spend roughly 50% of the revenue we receive from those referrals to purchase those miles for you. All of this can be tracked via the Invite to AwardWallet widget in the left navigation bar on your Accounts page.
