If you still like to order magazines, this deal may appeal to you. Even if you don’t read them yourself, you can still get them as a gift or to donate – and earn a whole bunch of miles in the process!
Earn 40 Miles Per Dollar with Alaska, American, and United at Magazines.com
We have seen payouts of 50 miles per dollar from magazines.com in the past but normally it is just one airline at a time. This time, you can choose one of three airlines you want to earn 40 miles per dollar from. It did come around last year at 45 miles per dollar, just for your reference.
500 Mile Bonus
If you do the spending through American Airlines and their portal or United Airlines and their portal, you can earn even more with this bonus of 500 miles when you spend $200. That would mean a $200 purchase(s) through one of those portals would earn 8,500 miles – or you could it at as letting you buy those miles at 2.3 cents each. That isn’t a great deal but it is sure pretty nice to be able to buy less than 10,000 miles at that price – and getting magazines at the same time!

Give or Donate
You can buy magazines as gifts or even to donate to your library/hospital/school. They would likely be happy to receive them and you will get 45 miles per dollar for your kindness!
If you would like an example, check out this page for the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital. It tells you what kind of magazines they would appreciate the most so it could be a good way to get some for something good without waiting to hear back from the organization as to what would be best.
This is a portal bonus that does come around a couple of times a year and is always a good way to buy miles for less than retail without having to buy up to a certain tier like mileage sales require. Plus, you can get more gifts, donate items, or even get a nice magazine for yourself while you are at it!
