Shopping portals are one of the best ways to earn points and miles with your favorite airline — without even having to step on a plane. Just by making a purchase online with select retailers through a portal, you can earn valuable points and miles, which can then be used toward your next redemption.

Because shopping portals are always updating, it's a good idea to see what each of the major US carriers offers at any given time — and all in one place. So, we're rounding up some highlights of elevated offers each week, as well as any promotions you should look out for that could earn you even more.

Disclaimer: This is a selection of retailers currently offering elevated offers, not an exhaustive list of all offers. In addition, there's no guarantee that any or all of these offers will be around longer than one week. If you're considering making a purchase from a retailer based on its offer with a particular airline, it's better to do that sooner rather than later before it's gone.

Important Reminders

Keep in mind that to successfully use a shopping portal and earn bonus points and miles, you must do the following:

  • Click through the link on the portal's site and make a purchase directly from the page that pops up. Don't navigate away from the page and complete your purchase in another window — you may miss out on the bonus points or miles.
  • Make sure cookies are enabled on your browser for the retailer's site. The portal will then be able to "track" your purchases and award you the miles or points that are owed.
  • Only use promotions or promo codes found on the portal. If you use others, it may disqualify you from earning any bonus points or miles.
  • Read the small print. When you're making a purchase or trying to take advantage of a promotion or elevated offer, be sure to read the restrictions to see if any specific items aren't eligible for bonus points or miles.

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
