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!

  1. I just used them to book 5 rooms for this weekend for a work meeting at a non-chain hotel in Florida and will earn 39,500 American Airlines miles for rooms that otherwise would have earned NO points! And the customer service was AWESOME when I had to make a change past the hotel’s cancellation deadline.

  2. The Vegas rates are just plain bad.
    4000 SkyPesos at the Aria for $224/nite?
    Priceline and/or MLife(with Hyatt credits)is roughly $100-125/nite.
    Venetian at over $200/nite?
    Encore $324?

  3. Geoff, why would you choose to earn Delta miles?! Unlike PointsHound, Rocketemiles doesn’t claim to always have the lowest price, though hopefully it isn’t usually dramatically different. Always do price shopping for sure, but with sometimes a 5 digit number of airline miles on the line, I would factor that in to an extent…and again, pick something better than SkyMiles! 😉

  4. The rates for United and/or USAIR Miles were even worse. More mileage credit but the hotel rates went up commensurately as well.
    I know these miles are “worth” more than Pesos but it appears that buying miles is a better option(a poor one at that), at least as Vegas goes. Perhaps they are better in other cities.

  5. Pretty inflated prices…random check for OMA (b/c i’m staying there this weekend) and they are charging $100 a night more than the hotel’s website is ($89 compared to $189) and only 6,000 AA miles…buying miles for $.05 not a good deal. Definitely need to comparison shop on this.
