If you read my beginners guide, you’ll know that being smart about online purchases can gain you lots of points and miles. On Monday I highlighted many upcoming mileage mall bonuses, like 10 Chase Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent at Apple on November 28th.

However, with so many mileage malls and cashback sites, it can become confusing figuring out which one will give you the best deal. Luckily, there’s a website that can help you evaluate all of your options:

I have to be honest, I just recently became aware of the site and I haven’t extensively used it, but it’s the only site I know that is comprehensively aggregating online mileage shopping earning opportunities and presenting them in a clean format. However, it’s not 100% perfect – it often misses some limited time promotions, so it still might behoove you to do your research before making any big purchases online.

I recently checked it out to see what the best deal for an Apple purchase would be and it showed that American Express would give me 5 points per dollar (and Chase only 2). However, I know that Chase is actually offering 10 points per dollar on November 28. Chase Ultimate Rewards was just added to this site, so I’ll cut them a little slack, though I still think it should list limited time promotions, since many of the best deals are often only good for a short time.

Apple results, excluding the limited time 10x Chase offer

So while it’s not the end-all solution to online shopping, it’s a great resource that I hope will continue to get more and more comprehensive as it grows.

    To those prefer online cash back sites instead of these loyalty programs. is another option. It contains the up2date cashback percentage from Big Crumbs,Coupon Cactus,eBates,Extra Rebates,fat Wallet,Hoopla Doopla,More Rebates,Mr. Rebates,My Deals & Coupons,Shop At Home. Just another option. It never hurts to double check before buying.

    It also gives erroneous (maybe just weeks old) information — my first search was for Amazon, and it still says USAirways is giving .5 miles/dollar. They haven’t done that in at least 10 days.

    As Brooks noted, I like evreward but the information is often dated.

  • Sean

    Finally UR was added to the site! Good for us.

  • Mike A.

    Agreed, is showing up at 5x though its 6x in the Amex MR store.

    Nonetheless, a great website! And I’m glad TPG posted it. I no longer have to search on every website manually just to find a good rate, :D

    That’s probably because it is actually 5x bonus points. Amex typically includes the base point for CC spend when quoting how many points you will receive.

    I love evreward even more now that UR was added! Keep in mind that it is also handy for listing coupon codes. I was able to use the coupon codes listed on evreward last night to go through UR and double stack the coupons.

  • anon

    It’s more updated than evreward and also has both cashback and points/miles.

  • boilers is another option but tends to be better.
