Can't Figure Out How to Access the Barclays Rewards Boost Shopping Portal

(Apologies for starting a thread for such a basic question, but I haven't been able to get an answer any other way)

Does anyone know how to shop through the Barclays Rewards Boost shopping portal?

When I go to https://www.barclaycardrewardsboost.com/, select a store, and click on "shop now", it asks me to log into my Barclays account. After logging in, I am taken to my account summary page, instead of being linked to the merchant's website.
I've tried to find a link to the portal within my Barclays account, but haven't been successful. As a result, I have been forgoing the extra points that I could have been earning with my Barclays Lufthansa Miles & More credit card.

Thanks

Have you tried logging into bank account first before accessing the portal?

Yes, but I haven't found a link within my account that takes me to the shopping portal (the same way you can access the Ultimate Rewards Mall from your Chase account).
Also, I have never been able to actually link up with a store, even outside of my account (I'm trying to shop at Barnes & Noble).

Like I mentioned in my thread, I have the Barclays Lufthansa Miles & More Mastercard.

Do not look for a link, just paste the link you mentioned in OP after logging in to bank site.

I tried this and it did not work. I speculate that this feature is not available for AA, LH and other co-branded cards where the partner has (or may reserve the right to have) their own shopping portal. However, I have no knowledge, it's just a conjecture.

Hm, that is too bad. This does work with Citi Thank You points, though I was probably the only one who had to call in - "oh you just log in and it works." It did after some tinkering by Citi IT guy, as it did not work out of the box like advertised

This is correct in my experience (holding a co-branded and non-co-branded Barclays card).

I'm going to register for the Miles & More shopping portal and try my luck there. The only issue is that half the site is in English and half is in German (even after selecting 'English' as my language).

Can you elaborate? Which card? And which link? My understanding was that Citi only has a cashback portal and not a Thank You points portal...

That is not really a subject for this thread - we have a Citi forum.

I will say I purchased my last AA ticket using the Thankyou web site using Thankyou points.
