Holiday Shopping Online? Get Extra Miles!
By Wendy Perrin
Attention last-minute holiday shoppers: Don't forget how you can earn a ton of bonus miles. My post about linking to store sites via airline sites (published 9/12/06) bears repeating:
"Now you can earn extra miles by doing your online shopping via airline and hotel Web sites. If you go to American Airlines' or Continental's or Delta's or any of 10 other airline sites, you can link to a huge variety of stores and, if you make purchases, earn anywhere from 2 to 10 miles per dollar spent. As a time-crunched working mother who does most of her shopping online, I can assure you that next time I order from Barnes & Noble or Lands' End or Harry & David, I'll be doing it through an airline Web site.
