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.

These bonuses are in addition to the standard points and miles you’d usually earn. 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.

Here are the details you need to know about these new airline shopping portal bonuses for December 2023.

Install Browser Button, Spend $25, Earn 1,000 Miles or Points

You can earn 1,000 bonus miles or points when installing the shopping portal browser button from 1 of 5 available airlines and using it to spend $25 in the next few days.

Bonus available through December 10, 2023:

Bonus available through December 11, 2023:

We value miles from these airlines at 1.2 to 1.8 cents each, so this bonus is worth $12 to $18. However, you can generally get even more value when redeeming miles for business or first class flights.

The button will let you know when a mile-earning opportunity is available when shopping online. You just need to click activate to earn miles on that purchase.

Note that you must keep the button installed for at least 30 days after the bonus period ends and you cannot have had the button previously installed. Miles may take up to 10 weeks to post.

How Shopping Portals 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.

Note that gift cards, shipping charges, and taxes won’t count toward the spending threshold, and any returned or canceled orders will be deducted from your total spend.

Hot Tip:

The miles earned through the AAdvantage eShopping portal are considered bonus miles, so they won’t earn Loyalty Points.

Final Thoughts

Multiple airline shopping portals are currently offering an easy way to top off your balance with bonus miles this December, just in time for holiday shopping. 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.
