2. Go on an Online Shopping Spree
Why not let your everyday household shopping needs translate into airline miles? Shop online through airline-affiliated shopping portals and watch your points add up. These e-commerce sites link into regular retailers like Walmart, Sears and Macy’s, among others. Double-dip by using a travel credit card for these transactions to collect even more points. Don’t overbuy just to rack up points, of course, but if you’re going to purchase certain products anyways (sheets, socks, toilet paper, you name it) you might as well get a little something extra for it. As an example, check out Southwest‘s or Air Canada‘s e-store.
