Black Friday might be long over, but the holiday deals keep rolling in. On Friday, you can earn bonus miles from four different airlines when making Apple purchases. The bonus elevations can be had at the following rates:

  • American: Earn 5 miles per dollar at Apple (typically 1)
  • Delta: Earn 2 miles per dollar at Apple (typically 1)
  • United: Earn 2 miles per dollar at Apple (typically 1)
  • Alaska: Earn 2 miles per dollar at Apple (typically 1)

While purchasing through your portal of choice (AAdvantage Shopping, SkyMiles Shopping, MileagePlus Shopping or Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Shopping), make sure to check the terms and conditions on this one-day offer. Currently, the iPad Pro, new MacBook Air and new Mac mini are not eligible for this promotion as well as gift cards, gift wrap, Bose products, Apple Developer Programs and shipping. However, you can earn these bonus points on other newer products, such as the iPhone XR, for example.

For example, if you’re shopping through the AAdvantage portal and purchase an iPhone XR for $899, you'd earn 4,495 AAdvantage miles, which are worth $63 based on TPG’s most recent valuations. From another portal that's earning 2x miles, such as Alaska, Delta or United, you'd earn 1,798 miles for that same $899 purchase, which are worth $32, $22 and $25, respectively.

Using online shopping portals is one of the best ways to maximize your holiday shopping experience, especially when it comes to earning bonus miles. However, remember these deals will likely expire at the end of the day — so don't miss out!
