If you're trying to maximize your spending to earn the most rewards possible, online shopping portals can be quite handy. Simply by clicking through one of these sites to make a purchase at your retailer of choice, you can rake in several extra points or miles per dollar. It's worth taking the extra few seconds to do this even when a portal will only net you an extra mile or two, but it's especially lucrative when you can take advantage of elevated earning rates.
