Rocketmiles is the hotel booking site that earns you the most frequent flyer miles for your hotel bookings (as far as I know). We aren’t talking a 100 miles here or there, we are usually talking thousands of miles per hotel booking. Their average booking results in 7,000 airline miles! That is a massive number, and for the next two days (through 10/4/13 11:59 PM CT) they are doubling the miles earned for stays in October (max one bonus).
Rocketmiles is a hotel booking site where you can earn airline miles with Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan, American AAdvantage, Delta SkyMiles, Etihad Guest, Flying Blue, HawaiianMiles, JetBlue TrueBlue, United MileagePlus, US Airways Dividend Miles, and Virgin America Elevate for your hotel bookings.
The downside of the site is that you generally won’t earn hotel points on your stays since they are booked via this third party. The site does now say that you will generally earn elite status on your stays, but that is not guaranteed since you are booking via a third party. Also be aware, the site only shows a limited selection of hotels in select cities. I think the site is trying to mostly appeal to business travelers, but it pays out so many miles that it is worth a look regardless of the type of travel you do.
I have been told that this 2x miles promo does not stack with the current promo for new customers to earn 3,000 bonus US Airways miles for their first completed reservation or the normal referral bonus where you earn 1,000 bonus miles on your first reservation. If you are new to Rocketmiles then do the math to determine which promo makes more sense for you based on how many miles the hotel you are interested in pays out for your stay, and what type of miles you want to earn.
If you find a deal good enough to pull the trigger I’d love to hear about it!
