April 2017 Shopping Portal Bonuses United and Alaska

Alaska Mileage Plan Shopping Offer

Alaska’s Shopping Portal offer is relatively simple and straightforward and runs through 11:59 PM ET April 12, 2017. The key terms of the offer are as follows:

  • Earn 300 bonus miles when you spend $150
  • Earn 1,000 bonus miles when you spend $350
  • You can only receive a bonus once
  • Returning the merchandise will result in the miles being returned
  • The amount spent must hit the threshold before taxes and shipping charges

United MileagePlus Shopping Offer

The United MileagePlus Shopping Portal offer is similar to the Alaska offer but runs through April 14, 2017. Like Alaska the offer is tiered with the following earning options:

  • Earn 300 bonus miles when you spend $150
  • Earn 1,000 bonus miles when you spend $350

The other terms and conditions are nearly identical, with returns resulting in the miles being clawed back, and the earning threshold excluding taxes and shipping charges.

Our Take

If you're looking to pick up some bonus miles, be sure to route your purchases through the airline Shopping Portal of your choice. As a bonus, by earning miles, you can reset the clock on your account and prevent your miles from expiring if you are close to your deadlines. If you have a lot of shopping to do and are a member of both programs, then you are best served by maximizing your earning from both programs since there are no additional bonuses for spending over the thresholds.
