How To Earn 12,000 Miles Doing Your Normal Holiday Shopping!

Today may be Halloween, but it apparently is the early early start to the holiday shopping season.  Three major airline shopping portals announced holiday bonus offers that can net you up to 12,000 in miles/points.  That’s in addition to any individual promotions different stores are running.

Before we get into each of the promos, don’t forget that you can set up alerts for when your favorite online store increase mileage payouts with American (and now United).

Earn Up To 4,000 Miles With The American Airlines Advantage eShopping Portal Bonus:

Spend at least $150 and earn 500 miles

Spend at least $600 and earn 2,000 miles

Spend at least $1,200 and earn 4,000 miles

It’s worth noting that these (and the other promos I’ll mention) are all cumulative spending numbers.  That means you can shop at different stores to get to these totals. The promotion runs from October 30th – November 19th, 2017.

Earn Up To 5,000 Miles With The United Airlines MileagePlus Shopping Bonus:

Spend at least $150 and earn 500 bonus miles

Spend at least $750 and earn 2,500 bonus miles

Spend at least $,1500 and earn 5,000 bonus miles

The promotion runs from October 30th – November 19th, 2017.

Earn Up To 3,000 Bonus Points On The Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Shopping Portal Holiday Bonus:

Spend at least $150 and earn 500 miles

Spend at least $500 and earn 1,000 miles

Spend at least $1,000 and earn 3,000 miles

The promotion runs from October 30th – November 20th, 2017.

The Final Two Pennies

Holiday shopping bonuses are always an easy way to pick up miles, especially for folks who don’t travel for a living.  You can earn miles and points for buying items you were already planning on buying, from the store you were planning to buy them from.  In some cases (Best Buy and Sears come to mind) you can order online and pick-up in the store.

The only downside is that all 3 portals are running the promotion at the same time.  In the past, they’ve sometimes run them in different timeframes, making it a bit easier to max out.  As it is, you’d need to spend $3,700 to earn all 12,000 points.  Obviously, it makes sense to pick one to start with.  Once you’ve maxed it out, move on to the next one.
