Yesterday I wrote a blog article about United Airlines shopping portal offering back to school bonus for purchases through the United Airlines shopping portal. Today I received an email American Airlines that American Airlines shopping portal is also offering back to school bonus offer.
Earn up to 2k Bonus AAdvantage Miles for Back to School Shopping
The back to School bonus offer of up to 2k AAdvantage miles are earned on top of any miles you will earn for shopping through the shopping portal. The maximum of 2k bonus offer is available if you spend $500 or more through the online shopping portal.
The bonus offer is available to all the purchases made between July 23, 2017, through August 18, 2017, mid night Eastern Daylight Time.
The 2k AAdvantage bonus offer is less than the maximum bonus of 3k offered by United Airlines, which requires a higher spend to unlock the 3k bonus.
Bonus Point Earning for Your Shopping Portal Spend
|Portal Spend||Bonus Miles|
|$1 to $149||0|
|$150 to $299||500|
|$300 to $499||1000|
|$500 and above||2000|
Please note the taxes and shipping charges are not included as part of the shopping portal spend. If you spend $520 at the AAdvantage shopping portal and out of the spend, $21 is taxes and shipping, your portal spend is $499 and you will receive 1000 AAdvantage bonus miles only and not 2000 miles which require a spend of $500 or more before taxes and shipping charges.
You can also earn one extra mile or point if you use any miles are points earning credit card.
