through 11/24/2014, the AAdvantage eShopping Portal is offering 8X at Sears. This is stackable with other offers…
This stacks with the portal’s winter promotion. For every $175 you spend through 11/24/2014, earn 350 bonus miles – up to 1050 miles:
5X Credit card earnings
And, don’t forget that both the Chase Freedom card and Discover It card earn 5X this quarter at Sears.com (among other places).
Double dip with gift cards
Sears is unusual among online merchants in that they explicitly allow portal earnings from both buying gift cards and using them. This makes it very easy to double dip: go through the portal once to buy gift cards and go through again to use them.
NOTE: Do not buy physical (by mail) gift cards with your Freedom card as it will be unlikely to earn the 4th quarter 5X bonus (since physical gift cards are sold by Kmart). A better option is to buy e-gift cards, or reload an existing gift card (either e-gift card or physical gift card).
Gift card order verification
With most gift card orders, Sears calls to verify your identity before releasing the purchase. If the process takes too long, you can expedite the process by calling Sears first. Have your order number(s) handy and call this number:
Be prepared to answer a number of questions to prove your identity.
Only 15 gift cards per order
Sears.com will accept no more than 15 gift cards per order when using gift cards to buy merchandise.
