    • Tier 2 bonus: 1,000 miles for qualifying purchases of $300 or more.
  • “Qualifying purchases” do not include returns, cancellations, shipping and handling, taxes, gift card or other cash equivalent purchases, and certain products that are not eligible for bonus miles.
  • Check individual store pages for store-specific terms / exclusions

Quick Thoughts

Always take bonuses like these into consideration when comparing portal payouts from one portal to another. These bonuses work out to a little better than 3 miles per dollar spent if you’re able to hit the nail on the head for the purchase requirements, which isn’t enough to get me to make a purchase just for the bonus but certainly might make these portals more attractive when comparing for an impending purchase.
