Other Portals

Both the Southwest Rapid Rewards and Delta SkyMiles portals are run by the same company as these three, but as of yet they do not have holiday bonus promotions. If they launch any promotions on those portals, I’ll make sure to cover them in a separate quick deal.

    • No, it is not necessary to use credit cards from those airlines associated with their shopping portals. You can use any credit card that is accepted (Visa, MC, Amex, etc). You can even use gift cards from the respective vendors to make payment. For example, you can purchase Macys gift cards at Staples using your Chase Ink Plus and earn 5X from that, then go online at these portals and earn the additional bonus miles offered for Macys and pay with the Macys gift card, effectively stacking one bonus on top of the other to maximize your mileage earning.
