Quick Thoughts

The airline shopping portals tend to run this offer a few times per year, but they usually stagger which portal is running it when. This time all five of these portals are running it at the same time which could come in handy if you’re planning on doing any online shopping for the holidays over the course of the next few days.

The terms state that you’re not eligible for the offer if you’ve installed the button previously, but that might not necessarily be the case. If you have more than one profile set up on your browser, installing the button to a different profile might work to earn the bonus again, but no guarantee with that. That method should work if you’re wanting to hit the bonuses for more than one airline shopping portal though.

The offer states that you have to use the browser button when spending $25+ in order to earn the bonus miles/points. I’m not sure if that’s strictly enforced, but it’d be worth clicking the popup when checking out even if you’ve clicked through from the portal itself.

Gift card purchases are listed as being excluded, but purchases from Giftcards.com work for these types of promos. Buying a $25 third party gift card of some variety is therefore an easy way to hit that spending requirement with very little effort.

With the American Airlines offer, not that although you’ll earn 1,000 bonus AAdvantage miles, you won’t earn 1,000 bonus Loyalty Points. You will earn Loyalty Points on the base spend of your purchase though.

For some reason the button pages on the portals often don’t show the offer initially. If you refresh the page, wait a little while and scroll down to the bottom, that sometimes gets it to show. I’m not sure if it’s a page caching issue or something else.
