Quick Thoughts

The United promotion get less generous the more you spend, offering 5x on $100 spend, but only 3.33x on $300 spend. American did this the last time around and it’s a strange format to me.

As per usual, the American shopping portal promotion gives you the shortest time period to hit the spending threshold, with United and Alaska allowing more time. Be aware that you don’t earn a corresponding number of American Loyalty Points for the bonus miles earned through this kind of promotion (although you will earn miles on the base spends).

While gift card purchases are always listed as being excluded from these bonuses,the bonus miles can usually be triggered by buying gift cards from either Raise or Giftcards.com, as those purchases get tracked by the portal. Both the Alaska Airlines and United portals have a card-linked feature where in-store purchases also count towards the spend for this offer.

These portal offers are always a nice bonus, but they aren’t world-beating. Be sure to compare portal rates on Cashback Monitor before committing to either of these.
