It's time to earn thousands of bonus miles for online shopping - up to 7x miles with Aeroplan, 5x miles with AIR MILES, 5,000 with United & more!

The pre-Black Friday/Cyber Monday holiday shopping push is on with tons of online shopping bonuses via the various online shopping portals. The current set of offers are perfect for those who like to get their holiday shopping done early or need to buy things before they go out of stock (this is critical if you have two teenage girls like I do!) and don't want to miss out.

These offers run for the better part of the next week to two weeks and all end before Black Friday and Cyber Monday. You can bet they will all have offers for that holiday shopping weekend as well. Some may be better than we're seeing below but some may be lower. The choice is yours as to whether you're happy with these bonuses or want to wager that they will be better for the biggest shopping weekend of the year.

In perfect timing with this post we have updated our Top 6 tips for maximizing miles & points earning on your holiday shopping feature that has been the go to guide for holiday shopping since 2014! In this feature we look at several ways to maximize your holiday shopping and one of the big tips is shopping online. In the section for online shopping we track all of the shopping offers that you'll find below and any future ones during this holiday shopping season. Be sure to bookmark it and return to it often to see all the latest offers.

And one more you won't find in Holiday Shopping feature as we typically don't cover this program for Canada (but it may make sense for anyone following suit of the traveler in our Podcast Episode 57!):

Remember not only do you earn the miles/points/cash back with these portals but you also earn the points or miles that are earned on your credit card and you also earn the points or miles from the end retailers loyalty program as well. For example, you can go through the Aeroplan eStore to shop online at Chapters Indigo - that means you'll earn Aeroplan miles for the portal purchase, whatever points or miles from your credit card and the Plum points from Chapter's program. Add in the bonus from the portal and you have completed a quadruple dip! Remember as well many of the stores for the U.S. based airlines and hotels are in US$ and ship from there so you can save some extra cash by using a No Foreign Transaction fee card like the Scotia Passport Visa Infinite Card.  Learn more about all the Canadian No FX fees cards here.
