Earlier today, I posted about an easy way to earn a 5,000 in Bonus miles from AAdvantage. Thank you to reader Samantha who emailed me that Southwest also has a decent offer if you are interested in shopping through their portal. With Rapid Rewards Shopping, you can earn up to 5,500 bonus points.
Up To 5,500 Bonus Points From Southwest Rapid Rewards
Breakdown of Rapid Rewards Shopping portal bonus offer:

Depending on which airline you value more and how much money you plan to spend, any of these 3 offers from United, AAdvantage or Southwest will earn you bonus points on top of the normal points that you earn by shopping through their portals. In my mind, making for a no brainer if you have holiday shopping to do! Which offer do you plan on going for?
