Are stores that aren’t listed part of the deal? For instance, what if I buy ikea merchant online thru the portal to make up the $500 min. Would that work?


I see mileageplan shopping is offering some in-store deals (according to email I got today). At staples 1.5miles per $$ spent. The terms exclude gift cards but I’m wondering if in people’s experience points from in-store shopping deals like this would post. Would seem sweet to use Iink Ink card to Mileagplan shopping account and then earn 5X UR plus1.5X Alaska points on $200 GC purchases.
