As always, be sure to comparison shop with a tool like CashBackMonitor.com to be sure you’re getting the best rate, but don’t forget to consider these payouts in your calculations. In addition to United, DeltaAlaska, and Southwest below, keep in mind that American is also running a current bonus, though it ends earlier (See: American Airline Shopping Portal: Earn Up To 1,500 Bonus Miles).
