Earn 5000+ miles with Rocketmiles


I’ve written a few times about Rocketmiles, as I think it’s an interesting option for booking hotels, particularly when they have an offer for a first-time user. The concept of Rocketmiles is simple – instead of giving you cashback or some other incentive, they give you airline frequent flyer miles when making a hotel booking through their website. The choice of frequent flyer programmes is pretty good:

  • Alaska Airlines
  • American Airlines
  • Air Canada
  • Avios / British Airways Executive Club
  • Aeromexico
  • Etihad
  • Air France / KLM Flying Blue
  • Hawaiian Airlines
  • Jetblue
  • Malaysia Airlines
  • Qatar Airways
  • Royal Jordanian
  • Turkish Airlines
  • United Airlines
  • US Airways
  • Virgin America

The amount of miles offered depends presumably on Rocketmiles’ profit margin on the wholesale prices it has negotiated.  For high end properties, you can be offered as much as 5,000+ miles per night, although it’s more typical to be offered 1,000-1,500 miles per night. Although that sounds like a lot of miles, you definitely need to keep an eye on what other websites such as hotels.com are charging, and the amount of cashback + Welcome Rewards you could receive. Otherwise you may just be paying a high price for some miles! You are almost certainly NOT going to receive status benefits and hotel loyalty points when making a booking with Rocketmiles, so keep that in mind and perhaps choose a non-chain hotel…

The latest promotion from Rocketmiles is offering 3,000 bonus miles in ANY OF ITS PARTNER PROGRAMMES. All you have to do is sign up for a new account and make a booking before 6 February, 2015.

In addition, you will receive at least 1,000 miles for the hotel booking and, if you sign up using this link, you will receive a 1,000 mile referral bonus as well.

5,000 miles in the programme of your choice for making a 1-night booking somewhere is a pretty good offer! So make sure to check it out…
