Sears.com seems to be aggressive with these programs lately, offering eight Southwest Rapid Rewards points per dollar spent, so you could earn 8,000 points if you bought a $1,000 refrigerator or LCD TV. On American’s shopping mall, you could earn 12 miles per dollar spent at Sears, so that would be 12,000 miles and almost halfway to a free ticket.
Just about anything you want to buy online can be found at one of these airline shopping malls. With the holidays coming, you could earn bonus points for your gift purchases, plus you can keep your miles active.
These special bonus offers can vary by day, by week or by month, and some are more aggressive than others.
