AAdvantage Shopping Portal Holiday 2013 Bonus

Just up until dec 2nd I believe, up to 2,500 extra points for shopping at all vendors. No minimum per sale spend, just cumulative amount thresholds. $250 will get the 2500 points, so an extra 10x. Looks good.

Not sure if it will work. T&C says Returns, shipping, taxes, gift card purchases, and certain products are not eligible for bonus

I've had inconsistent results in the past with bonus points actually posting.

And I'm forgetting: must you use Citi AAdvantage on the portal to get bonus points or any CC?

the way im reading the email it looks to me like you get a 1 time bonus of 2500 plus whatever bonus you get from wherever you make your purchases.

I like this much better than the United deal.

This is a much better deal, however... Cartera didn't pay for 2/3 last promotions I did through their shopping malls. It took screenshots and several rounds of messages to get my miles, and that's too much effort.

It's a shame.

how can a Cartera NOT pay when you go thru a shopping Portal ?
does AA or whoever the portal belongs to have any liability ?

I'm assuming these systems use cookies to track like most link shares, and I'm guessing the software isn't 100% reliable on all platforms (depending on what else is installed and messing with browser). That is all I can guess. I've added 54k in AAdvantage portal this month. Plenty of orders. Not a single problem posting. Working fine for me and has been a great way to add to the balance.

I've never had issues with regular purchases posting, just the promos like this one.

Never had any issues but always use screenshots and ensure that you are able to accept cookies from websites. As a precaution I clear cookies of the intended vendor in advance. As a matter of fact I just got 18k miles from eBags

If I am reading this right once you hit $250 then that is it. No reason to spend more and move to say Uniteds portal.

Is this a correct assumption?
