Two airline shopping portals want to send you on the trip of your dreams. Both the American Airlines AAdvantage Shopping portal and the Alaska Mileage Plan Shopping portal are offering the opportunity to enter sweepstakes, each granting a grand prize winner 100,000 miles and $2,500 in cash.

Find details on each of the offers below:

Alaska Mileage Plan Shopping

Through 11:59pm ET on September 28, 2018, Alaska Mileage Plan members can enter to earn 100,000 Alaska miles and $2,500. Not only that, but there will also be three first prize winners who will receive 20,000 miles each. You can register for the promo here.

You can earn entries for completing select tasks:

  • 1 entry — Register for the sweepstakes
  • 100 entries — Install the Mileage Plan Shopping browser extension
  • 100 entries — Opt into marketing emails
  • 50 entries — Make a qualified purchase of $50 per merchant (earn up to 2x per day)

Based on TPG‘s most recent valuations, the the 100,000 Mileage Plan miles for the grand prize are worth $1,800 (plus $2,500 in cash), and each of the three first prizes are worth $360.

American Airlines AAdvantage Shopping

Until September 28, 2018, at 11:59pm ET, you can enter to win AA’s grand prize of 100,000 miles + $2,500 in cash or one of three first prizes of 20,000 miles each. You can register for the promo here.

You can earn entries for completing select tasks:

  • 1 entry — Register for the sweepstakes
  • 100 entries — Install the Mileage Plan Shopping browser extension
  • 100 entries — Opt into marketing emails
  • 50 entries — Make a qualified purchase of $50 per merchant (earn up to 2x per day)

Based on TPG‘s most recent valuations, the the 100,000 AAdvantage miles for the grand prize are worth $1,400 (plus $2,500 in cash), and each of the three first prizes are worth $280.

In August, United launched a similar promotion, offering one grand prize winner 100,000 miles + $2,500 in cash. That promotion is still valid until September 14, 2018. So, if you’re looking to score big, now is a great opportunity to do so with these three limited-time promotions.

Shopping portals are one of the best ways to earn bonus points or miles with an airline or point currency of your choosing. Keep in mind that you may be eligible for elevated earnings throughout the sweepstakes period as well. Happy shopping!

Combined with the 60,000 point welcome offer -- worth $1,140 based on TPG's valuations -- this card is a no-brainer for frequent travelers.
