A bunch of different shopping portals launched holiday bonuses a couple of days ago which are offering thousands of bonus miles when hitting spending thresholds. Most of these are airline portals, but the Upromise shopping portal is also offering a decent cash bonus that could be pretty easy to hit with a Visa gift card order.

Quick Thoughts

These portal bonuses are worth up to 3.33 bonus miles per dollar on top of the earnings you’ll already receive, so there’s the potential for some lucrative earnings here. If you know you’ll be spending $1,250, earning $100 from Upromise is also pretty enticing as that represents a bonus of 8% on top of the cashback rate for whatever store(s) you’re purchasing from.

If there are some bonuses you’d like to earn but would have a hard time hitting the spending thresholds, it might be worth considering purchases from Raise or GiftCards.com. The portals have wording excluding gift card purchases from earning the bonuses, but that seems to refer to standard gift card purchases from retailers where you wouldn’t normally earn miles/cashback anyway. Craig at Middle Age Miles has received bonuses from both the American and Alaska shopping portals in the past after purchasing Visa gift cards from GiftCards.com, so it’s not unheard of.

There’s no guarantee that’ll continue, but I’m certainly going to give it a try; clicking through to GiftCards.com from the Upromise portal and buying three $500 Visa gift cards should generate ~$115 cashback which is far too good an opportunity to pass up. The worst case scenario is that I only earn $15 (the standard cashback rate) which would virtually cover the activation fees anyway.

The Upromise bonus expires in a week, so you don’t have too long to take advantage of that. The other portal bonuses end on November 21, other than Delta which ends on November 14.
