Earn Up to 1,000 Bonus Mileage Plan Miles by Shopping for Spring 2017

E ffective through Wednesday, April 12, 2017 at 11:59:59 in the evening Eastern Daylight Time, you can earn up to 1,000 bonus Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles — in addition to the standard Mileage Plan miles earned — during the Spring Bonus campaign at the Mileage Plan Shopping portal by spending the following minimum amounts of money for shopping for qualifying purchases on your favorite products from hundreds of participating retailers:

  • 300 bonus Mileage Plan miles when you spend a minimum of $150.00 shopping
  • 1,000 bonus Mileage Plan miles when you spend a minimum of $350.00 shopping

Earn Up to 1,000 Bonus Mileage Plan Miles by Shopping for Spring 2017

You can only earn the bonus of up to 1,000 Mileage Plan miles once, as the maximum number of bonus award points that will be awarded to an eligible Mileage Plan Shopping account through the Spring Bonus campaign is 1,000 bonus award miles.

Bonus Mileage Plan miles will be issued based on your cumulative qualifying purchases made during the bonus period. Returns, cancellations, shipping and handling, taxes, gift card or other cash equivalent purchases, and certain products are not included in the bonus award Mileage Plan miles eligibility calculation.

Please allow up to ten weeks after the conclusion of the bonus period for the bonus award Mileage Plan miles to post to your Mileage Plan Shopping account. This offer cannot be combined with other offers or promotions.

Other terms and conditions may apply.

Summary

Aside from expiring two days earlier, this Spring Bonus offer is otherwise exactly the same as the one offered by the United Airlines MileagePlus shopping portal — which is somewhat tepid at best when compared to other shopping portal offers — but it is better than nothing at all, I suppose.

The American Airlines AAdvantage shopping portal has a different twist on a similar current promotion: effective through Friday, April 14, 2017 at 11:59:59 in the evening Eastern Standard Time, you can earn 1,500 bonus American Airlines AAdvantage miles — in addition to the standard AAdvantage miles earned — during the 3X Shop Again campaign by spending a minimum of $50.00 shopping on each of three individual qualifying purchases for your favorite products from hundreds of participating retailers.

Be aware that the adding of Mileage Plan miles to your account as a result of participating in this promotion can take as many as ten weeks; but if that happens after the expiration date of the miles in your account, take consolation of knowing that the date of the transaction is typically what counts and not when the transaction is approved. You may need to take the time to send reminders to the administrators of a shopping portal if your miles or points do not post; and if that is not worth your time or effort, you might want to reconsider participating in one of these promotions…

…but if you intend to spend money shopping anyway before the promotion ends, you may as well earn Mileage Plan miles in the process.
