5000 bonus Miles on a hotel booking = FREE hotel rooms!
Rocketmiles is a hotel booking website with a special twist – it gives you a number of loyalty points in various programs if you book a hotel through it.
The loyalty programs available through Rocketmiles are numerous and include:
- An advantage
- Alaska Mileage Plan
- Etihad Guest
- flying blue
- BA Executive Club
- Singapore Krisflyer
- virgin aeroclub
- Emirates Skywards
- Aeroclub Aerlingus
- Heathrow Awards
Whether points earned through Rocketmiles means it’s the best place to book varies wildly, and we certainly recommend that you compare prices before committing to a reservation through Rocketmiles.
However, one thing definitely helps boost the value of Rocketmiles, and that’s a sign-up bonus…
The current Rocketmiles sign-up bonus
If you sign up for Rocketmiles and book through this link (or on the Rocketmiles app using the code ‘daydream’) before March 31, 2021, you will receive 5,000 bonus miles in addition to the regular miles you would receive.
The loyalty points you choose to earn with Rocketmiles and their value to you will vary greatly depending on your personal circumstances.
However, for the purposes of this article, I am using the example of Avios, which I value at around 1 cent each. Therefore, the 5,000 bonus points, as Avios, is worth around $50.
At the lower end, you really can cover the entire cost of your hotel room with this Rocketmiles sign-up bonus.
One night in March 2021 at the Rodeway Inn Miami will cost you $63, but you’ll get 6,000 Avios back, which is a value of around $60!
And just to prove that the title of this article works and that you can really cover the total cost of the room$60 points discount at Red Roof Plus Chicago Willowbrook saves you $3 off a $57 night stay in March:
At a higher level, you still get a massive (effective) discount on your room. The Radisson New York Midtown-Fifth, for example, will cost you $34 for one night:
While the San Francisco Marriott Marquis can be yours for an unbeatable price of $85 for one night:
These are of course just random examples – there is a huge range of rooms and discounts available for you. The only significant consistent point, however, is the 5,000 bonus points.
Should you use Rocketmiles?
Whether you use Rocketmiles continuously is up to you. Personally, I think this is always worth considering when shopping for hotel stays.
That said, the usual end result for me of any shopping for me is that booking directly is the cheapestand you still get status benefits when you book direct – this is not guaranteed with Rocketmiles.
