All the major US airlines (American, Delta, and United) operate online shopping portals that allow frequent flyers and shoppers to earn miles on non-airline purchases. Anyone who spends money shopping on the internet could rack up serious additional points.
It’s easy to do — if you’re shopping online anyway, might as well earn some miles for it, right?
Flash promotions can push earning rates up too. eBags is an online retailer that often has promotions for every dollar you spend through an airline shopping portal. For a limited time, American Airlines’ shopping portal is offering 14x miles on eBags purchases.
eBags sells a variety of (yes, bags) including luggage, backpacks, accessories, but also other travel essentials like noise-cancelling headphones, packing cubes, and much more.
Stack With American Extra Miles Offer
American concurrently has a bonus miles offer this week that they are calling the 10 Million Miles event.
Simply spend $75 in a single purchase to earn 500 bonus miles. And if you want to make the most of this big-time bonus, make up to four separate purchases of $75 or more to earn a total of 2,000 bonus miles.
Register here and shop through September 16, 2019, to earn.
Stack (Again) With An AMEX Offer
eBags also often has targeted offers through American Express. My American Express Gold card currently has a 2,000 Membership Rewards bonus on an eBags purchase of $100+.
What Are AMEX Offers?
AMEX offers are provided directly through American Express. Instead of getting a discount code or going through a special link, American Express has offers available that you can “enroll” your card in. As a result, the offers are tied to a specific American Express credit card of yours. The best part? You can combine AMEX offers with whatever other discounts or promos you find.
Have an eye on something, like maybe a Tumi backpack? Well, now might be the time to grab it. If you were to take advantage of the offers above on a $150 purchase, for example, you’d earn 3,100 American miles (1,000 bonus miles for the 10 Million Miles event + 14 miles x $150) and 2,000 AMEX Membership Rewards points. Not bad for a bag you’ve been itching to get anyhow.
