We have officially hit the Christmas shopping season with Thanksgiving now behind us and everyone is jockeying for a piece of all your spending. All the shopping portals are no different as they also earn a commission when you use their links/offers.
Early in November United kicked things off giving 500 bonus miles for every $250 spent up to 2,500 miles, next American Airlines stepped it up to a potential 2,500 miles for just $250 in spending. Then it was Delta’s turn offering 250 miles for every $115 in spending up to 2,500 miles. There have also been several other shopping portal bonuses going around the last month or so.
Now it is Southwest Airlines’ turn. Southwest has joined the game announcing their shopping promo this morning. Although it is a little less lucrative than other offers have been it still worth considering if you need Rapid Rewards points.
This bonus offer is a tiered offer and runs from now through 1/5/14 and offering members the ability to earn up to 1,000 bonus points. During this period you will earn a 1x bonus based on your total cumulative spending.
- Spend $100 get 250 points
- Spend $200 get 500 points
- Spend $400+ get 1,000 points
If you want to avoid the insanity at the stores, then online through a shopping portal just might be the way to go!
