Here is my mystery bonus:
An Easy To Use Shopping Portal
When Alaska Airlines started their shopping portal, it required some work on your part to see which merchants participated in the portal. Alaska later announced the “shopping button” which makes earning miles seamless and easy by working as an extension in your web browser. Here is a link for the Alaska Airlines shopping portal “shopping button“.
Here is an example of landing on a merchant website with the shopping button:
Bonus Mile Enhancements
The shopping portal often increases the mileage credit from merchants. When you land on an eligible merchant, the portal will show you the regular earning rate per dollar and any increase in earnings that are currently available. In the example above, the earning rate at Samsung is one mile per dollar but today it is three miles per dollar spent.
Besides the “featured offers”, you can click on “view all offers” to see all of the mileage credit special offers.
Mileage credit whether it is from flying, credit card usage or shopping all adds up. The Alaska Airlines shopping portal is an easy way to earn miles from doing the same shopping that you were going to do anyway. The shopping button makes it easy to earn miles without the hassle of figuring out which merchants participate and which don’t. Mileage earning rates can increase and the shopping portal will let you know the regular earning rate and any enhanced earning rate that is currently available.
Since many of us are grounded during the current health crisis, the shopping portal gives you an opportunity to miles while you are on the ground.
