Just a quick note to say that hotel booking site Rocketmiles (my link) is offering 3,000 bonus miles for new customers who book and stay at a hotel in April (with a checkout date by April 30th). That is a pretty hefty chunk of bonus miles just for a one night stay. Of course you also still earn whatever the normal mileage payout is for that hotel, which can range from 1,000 miles or so up to several thousand miles per night. You can select which type of airline miles you earn from options such as United, Aeroplan, Alaska, American Airlines, and several others.
Keep in mind that since you are booking via a third party site, there is no guarantee that your stay will earn elite status and hotel points, but you may get lucky and be able to double dip. I would give my hotel rewards number to the front desk just in case. Rocketmiles doesn’t list every hotel in every city, but they have enough options to make it worth a look if this sounds like a good number of miles for you. As always, I recommend comparing prices to make sure you are getting a good deal compared to other rates you have access to.
