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
British Airways: BA Miles Estore
Chase: Ultimate Rewards Shopping
Choice Rewards: Choice Privileges Mall
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)! 👍
