How do we do this?
#5 Using online shopping to earn airline or hotel points.
I think I now do the majority of my shopping online. Aside from groceries I can get shoes, clothes, gifts, and anything else shipped to my house. And often it’s easier to just have it sitting outside my door 3 days later than driving around trying to find what I need.
When I shop online I first click thru the website that gives me the most points/miles for my dollar. To do so I use http://evreward.com I enter the site name I am shopping it and evreward tells me who gives me the most back.
I used Kohl’s as an example here and see the following points available.
I usually go for airline miles UNLESS a hotel has a huge promo going. If Marriott is giving 15 points per $ I might go for them. If I chose to go with American Airlines I click on the info link and it will take me to the American Airlines portal. I click thru Kohl’s on their site and I am earning miles on my purchase. It takes an extra minute or two. But over time the miles add up.
