Use these online shopping portals to squeeze extra rewards out of every purchase

If you have a rewards card or participate in a frequent-flier/hotel-loyalty program, taking just one extra step when you’re shopping will let you earn even more cash back, points or miles on your purchase: Navigate to your program’s shopping portal or deals program.

Shopping portals and deals programs are your rewards program’s way of partnering with retailers restaurants to reward you for shopping at certain places. The retailer is rewarded with increased business, your reward program is rewarded (generally) with a cut of the sale and YOU are rewarded with extra points, miles or cash back, or a discount/rebate.

So, next time you’re shopping, use the chart below to find your card’s/reward program’s portal to take advantage of bonus points and savings.

If you’re looking for bonuses at a specific retailer, use a site like EVReward to search by retailer.
