You can boost your airline mileage earning if you shop through airline shopping portal. Instead of directly going to a website like macys.com or apple.com. If you go to the shopping websites through the airline or credit card shopping portal, you can earn additional miles or points.
To decide which shopping portal offers more additional points I would suggest you go through “Cash Back Monitor” Portal and find out which airline or credit card portal offers you maximum points for your shopping website and then use that airline portal to make your purchase.
In addition to providing additional points, the airline shopping portal from time to time offers additional bonus points for a particular dollar amount spent.

- Southwest Airlines maximum 2500 bonus miles for $1,500 or more spend
- American Airlines maximum 1500 bonus miles for $700 or more spend
