Multiple US airlines have unveiled limited-time holiday shopping incentives, allowing customers to earn bonus loyalty points to put towards free flights.
Alaska, Delta, American, Southwest, and United have all announced various deals offering bonus points when online shopping is completed using their respective links. In theory, a shopper could gain 16,000 bonus points if they were to use all of the available offers — although your Christmas list would need to be ridiculously big to do so.
The five top-earning airline options:
Alaska: 1,500 bonus points after spending $650 before Nov. 20th
American: 4,000 bonus points after spending $1500 before Nov. 18th
Delta: – 2,000 bonus points after spending $800 before Nov. 18th
Southwest: 3,500 bonus points after spending $1000 before Nov. 21st
United: 5,000 bonus points after spending $1200 before Nov. 18th
To earn the points, customers must begin shopping through the airline’s unique shopping portal.
Remember, points can still be earned on the credit card being used, so check your cards for any specialized bonus categories, and you could enjoy a solid haul of points in return for your holiday purchases.
