This post is mostly for my reference, but it may come in handy for others as well.

When booking airplane tickets online, go through the following shopping portals for best cash back/ points offers.

Citi ThankYou – 400 pts/order ($4.00)
WorldPoints Mall – 240 bonus pts/order 

United offers 500 miles for booking roundtrip, open-jaw and circle-trip itineraries online at united.com, and 250 miles for booking qualifying one-way itineraries there. This is in addition to the flight miles you earn.

WorldPoints Mall – 3 bonus pts/$1

Citi ThankYou – 200 pts/order ($2.00)
WorldPoints Mall – 180 bonus pts/order

American Airlines:

Best way to accumulate points: Buy an American Airlines gift certificate from GiftCertificates.com using your favorite shopping portal. For example, Ebates gives 4% cash back for GiftCertificates.com, Citi ThankYou gives 4 pts/$1 spent (4%), and you can even earn 2 AAdvantage miles per $ spent through the American Airlines shopping portal. Gift cards are redeemable only online at www.aa.com or by calling American Airlines Reservations. Gift cards cannot be redeemed at airport ticket counters or travel agents.

From 11/1/07 through 12/31/07, earn double AAdvantage® miles with GiftCertificates.com when you use a MasterCard card. That’s 4 miles per qualifying dollar spent!
