Southwest 3500 Miles Shopping Portal Bonus
- Receive up to 3,500 bonus miles when you use the Southwest shopping portal. Here is the breakdown:
- Spend $125 or more and receive 500 bonus miles (4 points per $1 spent)
- Spend $500 or more and receive 1,500 bonus miles (3 points per $1 spent)
- Spend $1,000 or more and receive 3,500 bonus miles (3.5 points per $1 spent)
The Fine Print
- Promo period runs from 7/15/15 through 8/16/15
- Promo points are in addition to standard portal earnings, not instead of them
- Bonus will be based on your cumulative purchases during this period
- You can only get one of these bonuses (e.g if you spend $1,000+ you’ll earn 3,500 miles not 3,500 miles + 1,250 miles + 500 miles).
- Allow 8-10 weeks for the bonus miles to post
Earlier today we posted about a similar offer from the AAdvantage portal. The only difference is on the $500 category which Southwest is offering 1500 miles and AAdvantage is only offering 1250.
These portal bonuses could really be nice if you do a lot of online shopping, especially these portals are offering competitive rates to begin with.
Remember also that you can get yourself $12 closer in your portal spend by purchasing a WSJ subscription.
