Update: It appears the American Airlines offer is targeted.
Both American Airlines & United Airlines are offering the same portal bonus (but please note that the United bonus doesn’t start until the 8th of December). Offer is as follows:
- Spend $100 and receive 300 bonus miles (extra 3x miles per dollar spent)
- Spend $300 and receive 1,200 bonus miles (extra 4x miles per dollar spent)
The Fine Print
- United offer valid from December 8th till December 15th
- American offer valid from December 6th till December 13th
- Allow 8-10 weeks for bonus award miles to post to your MileagePlus ShoppingSM mall account
An extra 4x miles per dollar spent is nice, fingers crossed they increase what they are offering at some of the more popular stores otherwise I’ll probably just be stuck using eBay (which would end up with a total of 4.5-5x miles per dollar spent).
I suspect the other Cartera portals to offer similar bonuses, it looks like they are staggering them rather than running them at the same time. Interestingly their new cash portal Splender is offering double cash back at almost all stores, but I wasn’t able to find anything too exciting.
