The bonuses of 500, 1,000 or 3,000 miles are in addition to the miles you’ll earn per dollar spent through the shopping portal. How much you’ll earn depends on your cumulative purchases during the promotional period. Meaning, you could make five purchases of $150 during the time and earn the 3,000 bonus miles for your $750 in purchases.

Shopping portals are one of the best ways to earn some bonus miles with an airline to put you on your way to your next award. If you know you’ll be making an online purchase — especially during this back-to-school shopping period — be sure to do it through a shopping portal in order to earn the bonus miles. Plus, you can maximize your earnings for this promotion by purchasing through the MileagePlus X app.
