Quick Thoughts

The American Airlines bonus might be of interest for people who are working on earning status in the AAdvantage program. While you won’t earn a corresponding number of Loyalty Points as the miles you get from the bonus, you will earn Loyalty Points from the base spend.

As for the Alaska Airlines and United portals, they have a feature that makes it easier to hit the spending thresholds. Both those portals offer a card-linked program that earn you bonus miles when shopping in-store at participating retailers rather than only being able to make purchases online. That can be particularly useful if you’d rather shop in-store at retailers like GameStop, Boscov’s, Carter’s and more.
