5,000 Bonus Airline Miles via Rocketmiles – Today Only!

Please note this site has financial relationships with American Express and this post may contain affiliate links. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here to learn more about my partners.

I just wrote about a Rocketmiles promo that awards 3,000 bonus airlines miles to the first booking on a new account, but today they have come out with a one-day bonus that is even better!  To celebrate their one year anniversary, they are awarding 5,000 bonus airline miles on a reservation booked today between 8AM Central and 9PM Central for stays through December 31st.  This promo is good for both new accounts and existing customers!  Though I have been told by Rocketmiles that it does not stack with new member bonuses.

You are limited to one 5,000 mile bonus, but this is pretty great since you get the miles in your choice of airline programs, so you can determine where you want the miles the most.  Even with a very conservative valuation of 1.5 cents per mile, 5,000 bonus miles is worth $75 in many programs.

Rocketmiles Programs Mommy Points

In case you still aren’t familiar with Rocketmiles, this might be the day to give them a try. They are 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.  They only list “hand picked” hotels and don’t always have the lowest rate, but they pretty much always offer the highest mileage payout for booking.  Do the math to make sure you are still coming out ahead, but that shouldn’t be too hard on short and inexpensive stays with a bonus of 5,000 miles on top of the normal miles earned!  I plan to really think hard today to see if my family can put this bonus to good use as 5,000 bonus miles on top of their regular mileage earnings is pretty substantial!

  1. MP –

    With promotions like this, we can’t really complain when our points are worth less and less over time.

    Who is winning here? The airlines and hotels make money selling the points, Chase and others are signing up new customers by the thousands with the tempting points and miles offers, companies like Rocket Miles attract points junkies with offers like this, and we, the consumer, can accumulate points faster than we ever thought possible!

    It all looks great!

    Until United, Hilton, Delta, Marriott, Southwest, etc. arbitrarily decide that they need to reduce the value of this artificial currency by 20 – 90 %.


  2. Lark, indeed. That’s why you earn and burn at the same rate and then you are largely guarded against the 20 – 90% devals. Enjoy it while it’s here!
    Choi, you can’t count on it. It might happen, but it is not guaranteed.

  3. Not worth for me as the room prices seem so overpriced compared to booking through other sites. I compared a couple of hotels im my area and they ranged from $216-$260/night at rockketmiles, compared to $120-$140/night via Expedia or travelocity….so is 5k miles in whatever airlines program worth over $100….I think not! Just a handful of top tier hotels showing up when booking via rocketmiles….

    • bexho2000, important to do the math for sure. I have found some hotels where the price difference is much less, and sometimes the same, but clearly that isn’t always the case. I would pay over $100 extra for the 5k miles either.

  4. Would I get credit for Marriott megabonus 1 night free after 2 stays if I find a Marriott listed on this site?
    Same question for priority cllub.Would I still get priority club point bonuses for the offers I signed up for?

  5. It seems to me these promotions are directed more toward the business traveler, who is reimbursed for expenses, than toward the individual who carries the burden of the higher prices all alone. For $100 difference in price, I’d gladly skip a few extra miles. Take the money and run, for use another day.

  6. It’s not more expensive everywhere. For example, I have a trip in San Francisco next week. Room rates are identical on hotels.com and RocketMiles.

    Thanks for the link. You should see a referral bonus soon 😉

  7. JK, that is not guaranteed since this is booking via a third party. You might get lucky, but it can’t be counted on.
    Masked Poster, I think business travelers can certainly do well with this, but it isn’t always $100 more. Just depends.
    Jeff, that is what I have found as well. The price just depends. Thanks for your support and enjoy the miles!

  8. Definitely can be a good deal esp. on lower priced hotels since the bonus is a flat-rate 5,000 miles. I “need” something in San Diego and there is a $159/night hotel (same price on Expedia) awarding 7,000 miles.
