In the past week, we’ve let you know that both American Airlines and United Airlines are offering travelers a bonus on their back-to-school shopping in the form of miles. Now, Southwest Airlines is running a Rapid Rewards Shopping promotion where you can earn up to 2,000 bonus points.

Between today and August 18, 2017, you can earn up to 2,000 bonus Rapid Rewards points when you make purchases through the carrier’s shopping portal. Exactly how much you’ll earn depends on how much you spend. Here’s how the tiers break down for this promotion:

  • Get 250 bonus points for spending $125
  • Get 900 bonus points for spending $300
  • Get 2,000 bonus points for spending $550

The bonus points are in addition to the points you earn per dollar spent when using the Southwest portal. In addition, the number of points you’ll earn is based on the cumulative amount of money spent. Meaning, you could make five purchases of $150 at different retailers and earn the maximum 2,000 bonus points.

Shopping portals are a great way to earn bonus points and miles with an airline without even having to step foot on a plane. For making purchases you’d already be making — especially with back-to-school shopping season here — you can earn points and miles that will put you on your way to your next redemption. So, don’t forget to click through a shopping portal before your next visit to an online retailer.
