Here’s an all-too-familiar scenario: You make a lot of work-related purchases, but all those charges go on the corporate card. So your company gets the rewards, and you end up with zilch.
But, and this is a big but, there IS a way for you to collect points, miles or cash back with spending on credit cards that don’t belong to you. Let’s get into the details below.
Online Shopping Portals
So let’s get down right to it. The secret is in online shopping portals. They’re an easy way to stock up on extra points, miles or cash back for online purchases. You’ll need to create an account with a loyalty program or cashback portal, click through to the merchant that you want, and make the purchase as you normally would. By starting with the portal, instead of directly going to the merchant’s site, you’ll earn bonuses into your personal account. And it doesn’t matter if the credit card you use isn’t your own.
Let’s have a look at what you could earn with Delta’s shopping portal:

If you don’t think you’ll remember to go through the portal every time you need to make an online purchase, install the portal extension to your browser. With it, you’ll get notifications at the top of your screen to go through the portal if there are bonus rewards for that merchant.
Don’t leave money on the table! Use portals when you do work-related shopping to easily earn points, miles or cash back without having to spend any money of your own. For our complete guide to online shopping portals, click here.
