Alaska Mileage Plan Shopping Portal - Target

Has anyone earned points from Mileage Plan when shopping online at Target? I bought a tricycle and was denied any points, so I looked it up and the terms are very restrictive. I totally get that Mileage Plan was correct in denying me points because toys are ineligible. But is there anything that is eligible?


Mileage terms

Not eligible on grocery (including bakery, produce, deli, and liquor), flowers, baby care items (diapers, wipes, food, and toiletries), household commodities and essentials, pets, electronics, electronic services, computer software, automotive accessories, hardware, toys, sporting goods, fan central, books and magazines, digital entertainment, movies, music, video games and consoles, Apple products, contract mobile and non-contract mobile, imaging and office, Target Pharmacy and OTC, Target Photo (lab and nonlab), Target Optical, Target Café, SweetJOJO, Target Registry Programs (which include Baby, Wedding, and College Registry), and products listed under the "Target Company Store" section of Target.com. Not eligible on orders place through third party websites where checkout does not occur on target.com.

I usually order clothes for grand kids. I have received miles for these purchases. I guess with the holidays coming up, it is good to re-read the T&C on Target.

Only once have I ever actually received the miles for going through the portal.

Good idea. It's a pity nothing else earns extra points.

That's a comical list. The only things I can think of in the entire store that's eligible are clothes and shoes.
