Bottom line

If you’re making any last-minute purchases this week, you’ll want to factor in these bonuses when comparing portal payouts. These all work out to be an extra 2.5 miles per dollar if you spend exactly $200, though if you intend to spend much more these bonuses likely won’t factor in as much.

Is it a minimum of $200 in one purchase to get the 500 bonus miles, or can one spend $200 cumulative across various purchases to earn the 500 bonus miles?


Usually, multiple separate purchases, even at different stores, work fine to trigger the bonus.
