I’ve talked about Rocketmiles before, a site that gives you miles instead of hotel points to book through them. You may or may not get your hotel points, but you’ll get a ton of airline points instead by booking through them. Their rates for hotel rooms are usually similar to, if not the same as, the rates on the hotels’ own sites and is one of the few third-party sites where I’d book a hotel.
Up To 10,000 Miles Per Night (And A Potential Bonus)
I’ve seen offers of several thousand miles per night before, but up to 10,000 per night is the most that I’ve seen. Obviously, the more expensive hotels are going to be offering higher amounts, but that’s a huge number. It’s certainly enough to make me consider looking at alternatives for booking my hotel stays.
It gets better. If you credit your miles to Copa Airlines, you’ll get an additional 2,000 miles the first time you book. Who is Copa? They’re a Latin American carrier that used to be owned by Continental and is a part of the Star Alliance. They just established their own program, so they’re offering a number of bonuses to get people interested in the program.
The Bottom Line
I rarely book hotels anywhere other than the hotel’s own website but, for up to 10,000 miles per night, I could be convinced otherwise.Want to subscribe? Just enter your email in the box above (and to the right) and click on the confirmation. GMailers, check your Social or Promotions boxes!
