Google Checkout is running a few holiday promotions for their purchase system. The first two tabs are for Savings and Free Shipping, with various coupons and free shipping on purchases over $50 at the stores listed.

In addition, you can earn 2 frequent flier miles per $1 spent:

Earn up to 10,000 frequent flyer miles when you shop with Google Checkout this holiday season.

* Once you register, you’ll start earning 2 frequent flyer miles for each $1 you spend with Google Checkout through December 31, 2007.
* You can earn up to 10,000 frequent flyer miles through this promotion.
* We’ll credit your mileage account and send you a summary of miles earned by January 31, 2008..

So if you’re going to shop at one of the listed stores anyways, use Google Checkout instead of the other options and get some free airline miles on top of your usual credit card cashback rewards. Be sure to register first at the site before making your purchase.

  1. Man! Google has been throwing down the gauntlet trying to steal some market share from PayPal. That is a great deal.

  2. This only applies to Google Checkout merchants who are in Google Product Search with the Google Checkout logo. Otherwise, purchases from that vendor don’t qualify for miles.

  3. Watch out PayPal. The air miles idea sounds great if you travel a great deal. I wonder how Google checkout rates compare to PayPal’s.

  4. “Only direct purchases from stores that display the Google Checkout image in Google Product Search will accrue miles. Invoicing transactions, resale transactions, and any attempt to earn miles through fictitious or otherwise invalid transactions, as determined in Google’s sole discretion, are strictly prohibited from earning miles. Google reserves the right to suspend the program for individual users in the event of violation of Checkout terms or offer abuse as determined by Google.”

    This mainly excludes person-to-person transactions. So I can’t sell you a $100 bill for $100 via Google Checkout and have you get rewards + 200 miles. πŸ™‚

  5. this is great for keeping airline accounts ‘active’ via some small transactions! i have so many airline accounts with miles that might expire and is too hard to keep track of. i’ll try and just make some purchases and change the rewards carrier
