I’m sure most of us got a holiday present that wasn’t our all-time favorite. While of course it is best to be appreciative of everything you get, sometimes there is someone else out there who will be even more appreciative of it then you are. The hotel booking site, Rocketmiles (my referral link), has a fun promotion to capitalize on this holiday present reality.
You can turn an unwanted present into 1,000 bonus airline miles on your next hotel booking by shipping it to Rocketmiles!
The thought was there, but something didn’t exactly click. Transform that unwanted holiday present into something you’ll actually use – miles. Send us that kitschy necktie, inspirational calendar, or other unopened non-perishable gift and we’ll send you 1,000 bonus miles for your next hotel booking.
Send your gift to our office by 31 January, and vacation faster.
This promo is limited to the first 200 participants and you have to make a hotel booking with them in order to get the miles, so there are some built-in limitations on the deal. All that being said, I still think it is still a pretty fun idea, especially since it looked like most items received will be donated to charity. I have a bag of both opened and unopened stuff we need to get to charity, and doubt I will get the chance to ship one of the unopened items to Rocketmiles, but I still think it is a fun and unique idea.
*TERMS: Participants MUST include their Rocketmiles user name (email address). Limited to the first 200 participants. Limit one bonus per person. Limit one gift per package. Item must be unopened and non-perishable. Items must be properly packaged and shipped to Rocket Travel, Inc. 560 W. Washington Blvd. Chicago IL 60661 and received by January 31st, 2014. Bonus miles or points will be awarded to the user on their next booking. User must stay before December 31, 2014 to qualify for the bonus. Bonus cannot be applied to previous bookings. All gifts received become property of Rocket Travel, Inc and may not be returned regardless of bonus eligibility. All clothes and other useful items received will be donated to local charity.
