Rocketmiles is a hotel search engine that award you miles with American Airlines, Delta, United , Alaska, Jet Blue, US Airways, Virgin America and Hawaiian Airlines when booking with them. I wrote an article about their cool business models a few months ago . This time, they are coming back with a great promotion for new customers only (sadly not for people like me).
A new customer can get at least 5,000 airline miles from a hotel booking with Rocketmiles. 1,000 bonus mile for opening a new account + 5,000 miles for the first booking + 1,000 miles for the booking itself. 7,000 United/American Airline points are worth about $140 (2 cent per mile valuation)
Here are steps by steps on how to get the points
1. Use my referral link to sign-up for Rocketmiles.com, you will earn 1,000 bonus points for signing up (I will also earn 1,000 points from your sign-up too thanks a lot)
2. Book a hotel today (Nov 5th). Stay at the hotel by December 31, 2013. You will earn 5,000 bonus points from doing this
3. Booking a hotel will ALSO reward you another 1,000+ points
4. After the points are posted, you can go to Account – Miles/Points – Add loyalty account – Assign the points to any frequent flier account
If you would like to maximize this promotion, you should try to book hotels with less than $140 per night. From my simple search I find a bunch of cheap hotels in Dallas, Houston and Orlando which will give you a net positive of up to $21
- There are $79 hotels in Orlando for many dates in October. These are great for Disney/Universal Studio trips
- $84 for hotels in Dallas for many days in Oct
- And many $100 hotels in Houston for Sep and Oct
