United and American airlines are each offering up to 1,000 extra bonus miles on their airline shopping portals so you can earn a total of 2,000 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 airline shopping portal and also in addition to any miles, points or cash back earned on your credit card.)

“Qualifying purchases” do not include returns, cancellations, shipping and handling, taxes, gift card or other cash equivalent purchases, and certain products that are not eligible for bonus miles.
Each offer has different threshold amounts and different end dates. If you don’t plan to make enough purchases to earn both 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.
