Groupon – the combination of coupons and social networking has transformed how local marketing is done. Many of us have purchased Groupons for 50% off retail price and have received good value at participating vendors. But it can be even BETTER! Groupon offers 8 miles per dollar spent through American Airlines & Delta’s shopping portals. United Airlines provides 6 miles per dollar spent and US Airways offers 4 miles per dollar spent. (So we are going to focus on American and Delta for this post.)
Here’s how to make sure you get miles for your Groupon purchases:
- Go to either American Airlines Shopping Mall or Delta SkyMiles Shopping.
- Register for a FREE account and link it to your American Airlines or Delta frequent flyer mileage account.
- Log in to the AA Shopping Mall or Delta SkyMiles Shopping.
- Click on Groupon from the American Airlines Shopping Mall or Delta SkyMiles Shopping sites to shop.
- That’s it.
As long as you log in to American Airlines Shopping Mall or Delta SkyMiles Shopping first before shopping at Groupon, you will receive the miles. All airline shopping portals work the same way. They have many merchants apart from Groupon. So check first before shopping online and watch the miles add up!
