In our Best Point Earning series, we focus on different ways to build our points and miles through online shopping opportunities. One of the hardest parts of knowing which online shopping portals to go through is trying to figure out which shopping portal is offering the best point opportunity. These values can change daily sometimes, so can be difficult to stay on top of.

Enter evreward.com. This is an online aggregate of shopping portals where you can put in a product or store and it will tell you which portals offer what points. It can be a huge help in helping you determine which portal to use. I use it all the time, as a starting point, before I shop online. Note: there are times when it will not have some portals listed for one reason or another. So, it is smart to check your favorite portals yourself if they are not listed on evreward.com.

How it works is simple: put in your item you are looking for or your store and it spits out the current values of point/mile rebates. For instance, yesterday, I had to purchase something from MacMall. Now, they used to be a store available through the (Chase) Ultimate Rewards mall – and at 2 or 3 points per dollar! When I was having to purchase some large ticket items from MacMall, this came in very handy! However, they have stopped being a partner of the UR mall, so I was not content with leaving points on the table for the purchase I was about to make. So, I went to evreward.com and put the store name in (MacMall) and it gave me my options:

evreward.com

 

There were not that many great options. Obviously, something is better than nothing, but instead of going for miles in my different accounts at 1 mile per $1, I opted instead to go with BigCrumbs and their cashback program. While I value 1 United mile around 2 cents, I was actually going to get 2.8% back instead by using BigCrumbs, so I actually passed on miles to get some cash instead! 🙂

There you go – a simple, quick way to know at a glance what the different portals are offering in exchange for your link to your desired destination. Remember, if you do not see your desired portal listed, check it out on your own, but for a big picture look, you can’t get any better than evreward.com
