Earn Bonus Miles through United and American Holiday Shopping Promos

Article By:




Online shopping portals are an extremely valuable tool to increase your ability to earn miles and points. You just click a hyperlink which forwards you to your retailer’s online website, you make an online purchase as normal, and you earn extra miles just for using the link! Airlines often have online shopping portal bonuses which offer even more points than usual. Both United and American announced bonuses for this year’s holiday season.

 

United


United’s is offering up to 5,000 bonus MileagePlus miles for using its shopping portal between October 30-November 19, 2017. You’ll earn 500 bonus miles when you spend $150, 2,500 bonus miles when you spend $750, and 5,000 bonus miles when you spend $1,500.



The bonus amount is calculated based on your cumulative spending over the eligible period. The miles should post to your account within 8-10 weeks. United’s shopping portal partners with countless retailers, including Barnes and Noble, T-Mobile, Apple, JC Penny, and more!


American Airlines


American is offering up to 4,000 bonus AAdvantage miles for using its shopping portal between October 30-November 19, 2017. You’ll earn 500 bonus miles when you spend $150, 2,50 bonus miles when you spend $600, and 4,000 bonus miles when you spend $1,200. The bonus amount is based on the cumulative spending over the eligible period, just like United’s promotion. The miles should post to your account within 8-10 weeks.



This is a great opportunity to earn some bonus miles for early holiday shopping. These bonuses are in addition to the normal online shopping portal bonuses. I’m guessing they’ll be offering similar promotions in December when the current promo period ends.
