While credit card bonuses are the fastest way to earn a lot of miles without traveling, one of the easiest ways to earn miles is through online shopping since you can earn miles for purchases you would be making anyway. Right now, 3 airlines are offering extra bonus miles for online shopping so you can earn a total of 3,000 bonus miles.  (In case anyone reading is not very familiar with online shopping portals, these bonuses are in addition to the miles normally earned for going through an online shopping portal and also in addition to any miles, points or cash back earned on your credit card.)

All 3 airlines have the identical offer. Here are the details:

If you don’t plan to make enough purchases to earn all bonuses and need to choose only one, consider how much you will be spending and also the payout on the store you are shopping from. An easy way to compare payouts if you participate in several frequent flyer programs is checking websites such as evreward and Cashback Monitor.
