Here is a link to the promotion on the AA online shopping portal.
The major US airlines usually offer extra bonuses around the same time, but right now AA is the only airline with an online shopping bonus.
In case anyone reading is not very familiar with online shopping portals, one of the easiest ways to earn free miles is through online shopping since you can earn miles for purchases you would be making anyway. The bonus is 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. If are a member of several frequent flyer programs, you can check websites such as evreward and Cashback Monitor to compare payouts at the same retailer.
