It’s the day after Christmas and retailers are giddy just thinking about the customers headed their way. Traditionally this is one of the busier shopping days since folks are heading out to use the gifts cards or exchange the presents they received yesterday — and hopefully buy a few more things while they’re there.

Online retailers don’t want to be left out of all the fun, so this morning three of the major airline shopping portals — Alaska, American, and United — have launched new bonus miles offers and raised payouts for some big retailers. All three offers have the same structure so you can pick which one you want to focus on, but each ends on a different date so you’ll have to be careful not to miss out.

Also, while the bonus offers are good for several days, many of these increased retailer payouts are only available today.

American eShopping


Keep in mind that American’s bonus offer expires first on January 3. In addition to the bonus miles, American has increased their payouts today for some major online stores, including these stores…

Apple — now 3x, up from 1x
Macy’s — now 6x, up from 3x
Nike — now 10x, up from 5x
eBags — now 15x, up from 7x
Magazines.com — now 45x, up from 20x

United MileagePlus Shopping


United’s bonus offer ends on January 6, and today you’ll also find the following increased payouts, among others…

Apple — now 3x, up from 1x
Macy’s — now 12x, up from 2x
Nike — now 15x, up from 3x
Saks Fifth Avenue — now 15x, up from 5x
eBags — now 20x, up from 4x
Magazines.com — now 45x, up from 12x

Alaska Mileage Plan Shopping


As of today, Alaska’s portal has higher payouts for these and other major retailers to go along with their 1,000 bonus miles offer, which is good until January 8…

Neiman Marcus — now 10x, up from 5x
Nike — now 12x, up from 4x
eBags — now 20x, up from 6x
Magazines.com — now 45x, up from 15x

There’s some really great stores on these lists, so if you’re planning to do some online shopping today, don’t miss out on picking up extra miles!
