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.

When it's down to the wire for those holiday gifts, a great online site is www.spaemergency.com. You can immediately email or print gift certificates for spas anywhere in the country.

Wendy: for the miles and for shopping, your readers might make use of this popular tool called Mileage Mall which allows you to search by store so you know who is giving away the miles based on where you like to shop and even more importantly, it allows you to compare how many miles per frequent flyer program -- be sad to only earn 3 miles per dollar with Delta when Continental was giving 10 miles per dollar. Saves a lot of time researching and links you directly into the frequent flyer mall so you can start shopping:
