It’s the holiday season, and with that comes a lot of gift shopping.  Rather than making your purchases at the store, I suggest seeing if your retailers of choice are partnered with an airline, hotel, or bank program’s shopping portal.  These portals allow you to earn miles or points in addition to what you’d normally earn from your credit card.  This is a very easy, quick way to rack up a bunch of travel points to get you on your next trip sooner.

The way they work is very simple:  Just click on the link, log into your account (or create one if you haven’t already), shop your favorite retailers as you normally would, and receive points / miles into your account after purchasing within a few weeks.

Here is a list of shopping portals to look through:

Air Canada: Aeroplan EStore

American: AAdvantageEshopping.com

British Airways: BA Miles Estore

Chase: Ultimate Rewards Shopping

Choice Rewards: Choice Privileges Mall

Delta: Skymilesshopping.com

Discover: ShopDiscover

Hawaiian Airlines: Hawaiian Airlines eMarket

Hilton Honors: Hilton HHonors Shop to Earn Mall

Marriott Rewards: Shop My Way

Southwest: Rapid Rewards Shopping

United:  MileagePlus Shopping

Wells Fargo:  Earn More Mall

And of course, these shopping portals exist year round, so you can use them at any time you like!  Happy shopping (and earning)! 👍
