Airline shopping portals are offering bonus miles for new subscriptions to The Wall Street Journal. You can earn as much as 2,200 from American Airlines, or go for a few less from United, Alaska, or Southwest. The way it works is that you go through one of the shopping portals and purchase a 12-week subscription to The Wall Street Journal for $12. I don’t think you can get a refund on the $12 that you pay if you cancel early. But that still could get you you miles for as cheap as 0.55 cents each.
Here’s the links:
- 2,200 miles through American Airlines AAdvantage eShopping
- 1,800 miles through United MileagePlus Shopping
- 1,600 points through Southwest Rapid Rewards Shopping
- 1,600 miles through Alaska Mileage Plan Shopping
- Extra miles will be issued based on an eligible Member’s purchase of a
subscription to The Wall Street Journal, starting with one (1) twelve week trial subscription for $12.00.
- The trial subscription purchase must be made between September 26, 2018 at 12:01am Eastern Time through 11:59 pm Eastern Time on September 30, 2018 and must remain active (i.e., may not be cancelled) for at least 45 days.
- There are no refunds of the $12.00 trial subscription fee.
- Offer is limited to one (1) trial subscription per account number.
Not a huge amount of miles, but you can buy them for cheap, so why not. Even better if you’re interested in the Wall Street Journal 12-week subscription. American Airlines AAdvantage eShopping gives you more miles for $12, but I guess it’s best to go for the miles that you value most. There’s also an opportunity to earn Avios with a subscription to The Economist.
