With Christmas just a bit over 2 weeks away, online shopping is going pretty heavy right now! If you plan on doing any online shopping this week, make sure (extra sure!) you do it through a shopping portal. Three airline portals are all trying to get your shopping clicks and willing to pay you bonus miles for that spending.

  • Ah I was hoping for higher tiers. I remember last year they had shopping portal bonuses around this time too. You’re right though that 500 bonus points for an extra click for a purchse you were going to do anyway is not bad.

    • You and me both! A few years ago, I picked up over 100,000 AA miles with these bonuses and payout increases for buying and flipping GoPros, I think they were?
