airline miles for amazon.com?

hello

I've been looking around.
Does anyone know if any of the mile malls have amazon.com as part of them to earn some miles?


tks...

The only thing listed on www.rewardsdb.com is rebates for UK sites. There is a thread here about a 10% donation to Amnesty Intl, but as I mentioned in the earlier thread, I usually go to the rewardsdb.com site to link there to thank Andrew Cram for all the work he has done on that site for all the other miles earning info.

Between he, PGary, and FT we have earned many, many miles!

Although its not listed on shop4miles' site as worth anything (it says 0 miles per dollar), a polite email to the customer service usually results in them offering one mile per dollar for Amazon.com. Think of it as an unadvertised bonus.

I just bought a few orders of books and by simply asking in this manner, I've been awarded 1 mile per dollar at Amazon for all those purchases.

You can buy Amazon gift cards (and I believe use them online) at giftcertificates.com if you earn miles at an airline partnered with them in some way.

For book purchases, I've gone through their partner site, Target, and gotten miles/points -- SOMETIMES. Some portals work, some don't. I figure if it works, it's also an unadvertised bonus One portal specifically says Amazon purchases excluded, so I have never tried that one...lol

thanks for the info.

I saw the shop4miles, but like the post, it says you don't get any.

I like the idea, so, I'll just simply email custserv and beg for miles!!!

none of my usually shopping places have amazon listed.
I usually use nwa's milemall.

In NWAs mile mall you get 2miles per dollar through giftcertificates.com.

You could buy an amazon gift card earning the miles then use the giftcard online at amazon.com

At one point, with Citibank (Diamond Preferred Rewards) you could buy Amazon.com gift certificates and get 5% back. I don't remember whether that was on top of the 1% you'd get for regular purchases.

Anyway, if you have an Amazon.com credit card you can get 3% back. I'm pretty sure the details/links to apply are available from the Amazon.com site.
It may only give you gift certificates towards future purchases; don't remember.

I need to remember this Although I do prefer using credit cards for purchasing certain items for various reasons, such as additional warranty protection.

The amazon gift cards are electronic, correct? So they are issued right away?

http://www.evreward.com does not list any rewards programs for amazon.com.
It does, however, provide quite a list of discount codes for assorted products. Might we worth checking.

Yep, they're e-giftcards and usually emailed within a few moments.

Any idea of the breakdown of which portal offers the most miles for giftcertificates.com?

Do they come in increments or can you select a specific amount?

Not sure about which portal offers the highest amount-would depend on your airline etc.

Amazon you can purchase ecards increments up to 100, but you could buy multiple. Not sure about the fees associated with each, but the miles usually outweigh it.

I usually check webflyer.com to find miles and points per dollar for any online merchant.
