Earn Miles or Points From Your Choice of 23 Airlines With Rocketmiles

When you book a hotel through Rocketmiles, you’ll earn airline miles (but usually not hotel points).  You can choose from:

There’s no limit to the number of nights you can book.  But there are a few restrictions:

  • Only 1st-time customers can get double miles or points
  • The bonus can’t be combined with any other offers
  • You can earn a maximum of 30,000 miles / points TOTAL (or 3,000 Norwegian CashPoints) through this promotion

Note:  You can NOT stack the usual 1,000 mile new customer bonus with this deal.

Is It Worth Booking Through Rocketmiles?

I’ve written that booking through Rocketmiles can sometimes be worth it if you can find a cheap hotel rate in the destination you want.  Their selection is limited in some cities, but you can usually find both chain and independent hotels.

You’ll Earn Double Alaska Airlines Miles at the Hyatt Regency Austin

Their prices are usually (but not always) similar to other online travel agencies, like Orbitz and TravelPony.  And it might be worth paying a few more dollars for a lot of extra miles.

Like bookings with other discount travel sites, you won’t usually earn hotel points on Rocketmiles stays.  And don’t count on getting elite status perks.

But folks who are trying to get the Southwest Companion Pass should consider earning Southwest points through Rocketmiles, because the points DO count (except for bonus points, like the recent 3,000 point offer).

As always, shop around before you book to make sure you’re getting the best deal!  And double-check the cancellation policy, because it varies depending on hotel.

When you book, use a card that earns extra points for travel, like the Chase Sapphire Preferred.

Bottom Line

First-time customers will earn double airline miles or points through the Rocketmiles 24-hour flash sale.  Book by 8:59 am Eastern Time tomorrow, January 23, 2015.

You can earn miles from your choice of 23 airlines.  But remember to shop around before you book, because Rocketmiles’ prices can sometimes be more expensive than other discount hotel sites.

And always check the cancellation policy!

Let me know if you find a good deal with this sale!

  1. I want to take my 13 year old granddaughter to Ireland this summer. Our dream trip. I have over 120000 Chase reward points. I checked the United awards and they have flights from LAX to Dublin for 30000 on Ethiopian Airlines. Do I first transfer my points to British Air to use as Avios, then call BA to book the Ethiopian flights? If so, how long does it take for the transfer to show up on my account? Thank you for your direction…love your blog as it will make this trip possible.
