Online shopping portals can be a great way to pick up additional miles & points for purchases you’d make anyway. Just for following a specific link you can earn bonus points in addition to the ones you’d earn anyway for credit card spend.
Sometimes it gets even better than that, as shopping portals have promotions with even better bonuses than usual. Well, there’s one such promotion now.
Through 11:59PM ET today, Friday, January 20, 2017, you can earn 15 bonus Alaska miles per dollar spent at select retailers.
I value Alaska miles at ~1.8 cents each, so to me the 15 miles per dollar are the equivalent of a ~27% return on your spend, not including any points earned with a credit card.
Eligible retailers for this promotion include the following:
- Lord & Taylor
- Neiman Marcus (Check Amex Offers to get $50 back when you spend $200 or more)
- Old Navy
- Rosetta Stone
- Saks Off Fifth
- Under Armour
If you’ve been considering making a purchase with one of the above retailers, I’d certainly consider doing so today. Taking advantage of this offer is the same as a 25%+ return, as far as I’m concerned. When you click through the retailer you’ll just want to read over the terms to be sure your purchase is eligible. For example, with most retailers, the purchase of gift cards doesn’t qualify for the bonus.
Anyone plan on taking advantage of the excellent 15 mile per dollar bonus through Alaska’s shopping portal today?
