Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Get 3,000 bonus United MileagePlus miles for a Rocketmiles hotel booking

I posted the other day about the new United MileagePlus UK credit card so it is worth highlighting this deal as well.

I wrote an introduction to hotel booking site Rocketmiles here.  It is a small-scale (ie limited selection) hotel booking site which offers significant (ie up to 7,000 miles!) airline mile bonuses when you book.

Until 30th November, you can receive a bonus of 3,000 United MileagePlus miles when you create a new account and make a booking.

Here is the small print:

To qualify for the booking bonus of 3,000 miles, a customer must create a new account on Rocketmiles and complete a booking through Rocketmiles between 12:00 AM (CST) on October 14, 2013 and 11:59 p.m. (CST) on November 30, 2013 and complete the hotel stay associated with such booking by April 1, 2014. Booking bonus of 3,000 miles is awarded to new customers for their first booking through Rocketmiles (with associated stay) only – all subsequent bookings and associated stays will not qualify for the booking bonus. Any miles offers displayed on our website do not yet include the 3,000 bonus, which will be added separately after your reservation is complete. Base earning rates will range between 1,000 – 5,000 miles per night. Limit 1 bonus per person. Rocketmiles bookings made after 11:59 (CST) on November 30, 2013, no-show reservations, and bookings cancelled prior to check-in will not be eligible.

In general, Rocketmiles prices tend to be in line with what you will pay through similar channels such as Expedia.  If you have a pile of United miles to top up, this is a decent opportunity.

Rocketmiles is also a partner with Etihad Guest, Flying Blue and American, amongst other airlines, although not Avios or Virgin Flying Club.
