Shopping portals are one of my favorite ways to earn additional miles but portals really are only lucrative if you’re buying high dollar items with a great shopping portal earning rate. For example, every once in a while you’ll see American offer 5 or more AAdvantage miles per dollar spent at Apple. This presents a great opportunity because the chances of buying a high dollar item at Apple are high. Think about it — if you buy a $1,500 MacBook, that’s roughly 7,500 American miles.
Why are we here today?
American is offering 10 AAdvantage miles per dollar spent at IHG.
Why is this good?
Say you book a 5 night trip in Italy at a hotel in Rome for a total cost of $1,000. When multiplied by the 10 miles/dollar, you’ll get 10,000 AA miles or enough for a one-way flight.
Is the offer available at any other program with this rate?
