The Deal

Key Terms

    • Orders purchased on the Government or Military and Veteran’s Stores are not eligible for additional rewards.
    • Apple sells and ships products to end user customers only; you may not purchase for resale.

    • Not eligible on purchases made with coupon or discount codes that are not found on this site.
    • Not eligible on gift cards, gift certificates or any other similar cash equivalents.
    • Purchases made with a gift card may be ineligible.

Quick Thoughts

I’m not an Apple person myself, but if I was I might consider these increased payouts. Given the current travel landscape, some may prefer 8% cash back to miles, through Alaska Mileage Plan miles would be a good pick if you’re looking for miles.

Keep an eye on the excluded products as things like the Mac Pro and Apple Pro Display XDR are not eligible for miles from Alaska (the same / similar restrictions are usually listed on all of the shopping portal sites).
