Earn Extra Miles for Your Online Shopping This Holiday Weekend!

During the holiday weekend, many of the airline shopping portals are running promotions for bonus miles-earning.  If you have some online shopping to do, this weekend is a great time to do it, to boost your frequent flyer mile balances!

We’re seeing bonus earning from American, Delta, Alaska and Southwest, for now through Monday (October 8).  There is also a British Airways double-Avios promotion that runs through Sunday (October 7).

And we’ve already covered United’s ongoing promotion through October 15 that earns bonus miles when you hit spend thresholds of $150 and $350.

As always, be sure to check rates at Cashback Monitor to see which portal and promotion works best for you.  And if you need guidance on how to use shopping portals to earn miles and cash back, we have an article to guide you: Our Step-by-Step Guide – How to Use a Shopping Portal to Earn Miles or Cash Back.
