Quick Thoughts

United’s portal offers the best earning potential here. Both United and American Airlines having a 500 bonus mile threshold, but you can hit United’s when spending only $150, whereas you have to spend $200 to hit American’s threshold.

United has an additional threshold, awarding 1,000 bonus miles when spending $300. That means you’ll earn a bonus 3.33 miles per dollar if spending exactly $300.

As always, compare the standard portal rates plus the bonus against other shopping portals using Cashback Monitor. That’s because even with the bonus 500/1,000 miles, you might do better using a different portal.
