How to Log In
To take advantage of the bonus miles, you’ll need to log in to your account using your ANA Mileage Club membership details. If you are not yet a member, then you’ll need to sign up here.
If you’re already a Mileage Club member, you don’t need to create a separate login to access the shopping portal — you just need to input your account number and password into the login box and click “Go to website.”
Basics of Using the ANA Portal
Once you are logged in, you can browse retailers and special offers. There are tabs at the top of the Mileage Mall homepage for easy navigation.
On the homepage, there will be a selection of retailers under the Hot Offers section that you can navigate to quickly, or you can search for a particular retailer using the search box at the top right.
If you know what you’re in the market for, you can browse by category by using the Categories drop-down.
When you click on a retailer, you will be directed to a dedicated page where you can view current offers, live e-vouchers, company information, and purchase terms.
To start shopping, click “Shop now” or “Login to start shopping” (if you haven’t logged in yet).
Hot Tip: Though you can browse retailers without logging in, be sure to do so before you make a purchase so all your miles will be counted!
Once you make a qualifying purchase, ANA will show the points as pending within 5 days. When the purchase has been validated, the points will be credited to your account (usually within 90 days).
You must always click through from the Global Mileage Mall before making a purchase; it’s not possible to retroactively apply points if you forget!
Once you have selected a category, you can sort your retailer results alphabetically, by highest point earning, or most popular.
Hot Tip: If you would like to see what deals other shopping portals are offering at a particular store, use CashBack Monitor to easily see a store’s offers at 45 different shopping portals.
Occasionally, the ANA Global Mileage Mall will run special offers that help you earn bonus miles.
For example, in fall 2018, ANA gave members the chance to earn 2x or 4x the usual number of miles with specific retailers.
Hot Tip: You can use all your extra miles to book a first class flight on ANA’s A380 aircraft.
There are currently over 1,000 retailers to choose from when shopping through the ANA Global Mileage Mall, including global and Japanese brands.
Miles are calculated against a $10 spend — so although they may appear high vs. other airline shopping portals, they are actually fairly similar (if not slightly lower).
At the time of this writing, these were some of the better earning rates being offered:
- Macy’s 25X miles per $10
- Clarins: 22X miles per $10
- American Eagle: 15X miles per $10
- Microsoft: 10X miles per $10
- Saks Fifth Avenue: 29X miles per $10
- …and more!
Another benefit of being an ANA Global Mileage Mall member is that you have access to voucher promotions from lots of retailers. So it’s not just the extra bonus points you’ll receive!
Here are some example offers at the time of writing this article:
- Timberland — take an additional 15% off
- All Saints — 30% off everything
- Lenovo — save an extra 5% on any PC, plus free shipping
Hot Tip: You can use all of the extra miles you earn to treat yourself to a business class flight on ANA!
Using Credit Cards to Earn Extra ANA Miles
To further boost your ANA miles, use a rewards card that’ll earn “flexible” points which can then be transferred directly to your ANA Mileage account, as well as many other airline and hotel partners.
Recommended Amex Cards (Personal)
|The Platinum Card® from American Express - There's currently a welcome bonus of 60,000 points after spending $5,000 in your first 3 months. This is our favorite card for getting into 1,200+ airport lounges worldwide (including Priority Pass) and we get about $1,500+ in value from the card every year. |
Plus, get up to $200 in Uber credits annually ($15 per month and a $20 bonus in December) — and up to $200 in annual credit for airline incidental charges (e.g. baggage fees). For rates and fees of the Platinum Card, click here.
