Portal deals: Staples is back, Best Buy 5X, Lowes 6X, and many more…

Via Frequent Miler’s Portal Alerts, the American Airlines, Alaska, and Southwest mileage portals are offering enhanced bonuses for a number of merchants.  It’s worth noting that Staples, which had recently disappeared from most mileage portals is now back and running a 4 mile per dollar promo through the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Shopping portal.


Enhanced rates are most likely for today only.
