Miles For Shopping

Are you leaving miles on the table?  Did you know you can earn miles for shopping?  That’s right, you can earn miles for doing something that you would ordinarily do.  Here’s how:

Many of the airlines have an eshopping portal where not only will you earn miles for your shopping, but you can earn bonus miles. And if you use your airline affiliated credit card, additional miles.

Like magazines? Order your favorites and receive 23 miles for every dollar spent.

Want to avoid the crowds during Nordstrom’s Half Yearly Sale?  Stay at home in your PJs, shop online, and earn 3 miles for every dollar spent.

Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card

The Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best card for beginning travel hackers. It is the first card you should get to start traveling for free because the welcome offer is 60,000 points after spending $4,000 in the first three months.  
My favorite perks about this card are earning 5X points on travel when booked through the Chase portal (2X if direct purchase), 3X points on dining , $50 yearly credit on hotels booked through the Chase portal, no foreign transaction fees, and transferring points to 13 airline and hotel partners like Hyatt, United, and Southwest.

Chase Freedom Unlimited®

The Chase Freedom Unlimited is one of my favorite cards for earning cash back card and travel rewards. It offers a welcome offer of 3% cash back = an extra 1.5% cash back on up to $20,000 in purchases your first year.
My favorite perks about this card are earning 6.5% cash back on travel booked through the Chase Travel Portal , 4.5% cash back at drugstores and restaurants, unlimited 1.5% cash back on all purchases and no annual fee. When paired with cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve® Card, you can use your points to travel for free.
