Southwest 3500 Miles Shopping Portal Bonus

The Offer

Direct Link

  • 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

Our Verdict

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.
