Shopping portal bonuses are a great way to earn extra miles when shopping online. While you can earn miles any time, these limited-time deals offer additional bonuses that can help rack up lots of extra points and miles quickly.

This month, there are new shopping portal bonuses for the American Airlines shopping portal and the United Airlines shopping portal.

Here are the details you need to know about these new bonuses for April 2024.

American Airlines Shopping Portal Bonus

The American Airlines AAdvantage shopping portal is offering a mystery bonus promotion from April 8, 2024, through April 15, 2024. However, upon inspection of the fine print, it seems everyone is “targeted” for a bonus 500 miles after spending $200 or more. (You might notice a different bonus amount, though, as this is a mystery bonus.)

We estimate that American miles are worth around 1.4 cents each for flights. They can be redeemed for maximum value for flights on American Airlines as well as on Oneworld partner airlines, including Cathay Pacific, Qantas, Qatar, and even for the Etihad Apartment!

Hot Tip:

The miles you earn from regular purchases through AAdvantage shopping will also earn Loyalty Points, which help you earn American Airlines elite status. However, bonus miles, like the 500 you can earn from this promotion, do not earn Loyalty Points.

United Airlines Shopping Portal Bonus

The United MileagePlus shopping portal is currently offering a bonus of 500 miles after spending $100 or more from April 8, 2024, through through April 15, 2024. Like the American shopping portal bonus, this bonus is also a mystery, so your miles and spending threshold could differ.

We value United miles at about 1.2 cents each, but you can often get a higher value by redeeming your miles for business class flights on United and Star Alliance partners like Lufthansa, ANA, or Turkish.

Bottom Line:

Both the American Airlines and United Airlines shopping portals are offering bonuses from April 8, 2024, through April 15, 2024.

How Shopping Portal Bonuses Work

To take advantage of these bonus points and miles, click through a retailer’s website on your shopping portal of choice before making an online purchase. No separate activation is required.

Your purchases will automatically be tracked, and you’ll earn bonus miles based on your spending during the promotional period.

Qualifying purchases do not include returns, cancellations, shipping and handling, taxes, gift cards, or other cash equivalent purchases, and certain products are not eligible for bonus points. Any returned or canceled orders will be deducted from your total spend.

Final Thoughts

These shopping portal bonuses offer an easy way to top off your balance with bonus miles, but you’ll have to act quickly.

When it comes to shopping portals in general, all you need to do is click through a participating store on the portal before completing your purchase. Once you meet a minimum spending requirement, the bonus miles or points will be credited to your account automatically.
