Several times a year, all of the major eShopping portals launch sales that incentivize you to spend X and get Y in the form of bonus miles. Back to School season is one of those times.

Back to School Bonus Miles

Here’s what you can get from four of the major airline portals right now:

American Airlines AAdvantage eShopping – get up to 2,000 bonus miles for $500 in spend.

United MileagePlus Shopping – up to 500 miles for $125 or up to 1,000 miles for $150 in spend if you have a United Explorer Credit Card


Delta SkyMiles Shopping – earn 500 miles for $150+ or 1,000 for $350+.

Southwest Rapid Rewards Shopping – up to a max of 2,000 points if you spend $550.


You can do all of the offers if you have enough spend coming up.

It does not appear that Alaska’s shopping portal nor the BA Avios portal are participating in this round.


Let me know here, on Twitter, or in the private MilesTalk Facebook group.
