If you read Head for Points online, this offer may sound familiar because I added it mid-morning to the article on Rocketmiles I ran last week.
However, for everyone who reads the site via the daily emails or reads it online before 10am, you won’t have seen this.
As with Kaligo.com and PointsHound, Rocketmiles has deals with various hotel room consolidators to provide it with rooms at wholesale prices. Whilst the selection of hotels available is not the largest, the large profit margins on the rooms allow them to offer very generous mileage incentives when you book.
Rocketmiles will offer you 1,000 – 5,000 Avios points PER NIGHT when you book with them.
Their pricing, frankly, not always the cheapest. The price should compare OK with booking the hotel directly from its own website (the consolidator route is often used by hotels to quietly move unsold rooms without cutting their headline price) but you should check other independent sites.
If you are not spending your own money when booking hotels, it can be very attractive.
Generous ‘first booking’ offer
Some HFP readers received a targetted ‘5,000 Avios on your first booking’ bonus email last week. This was only valid for the person who received it.
However, for the rest of us. you can receive 3,000 Avios on a booking made before 30th June by using this link.
It is important to remember that you will not earn hotel loyalty points or status credit from your stay booked via Rocketmiles. Depending on the chain, you may or may not be able to get your status benefits honoured (free internet, free breakfast, upgrade etc).
Rocketmiles is fully approved by British Airways. You can see their page at ba.com here. Do NOT book via the link on that page, though, as you will not receive the additional 3,000 Avios. You need to use this link instead.
