RocketMiles – Earn 1,000 BONUS miles for first hotel reservation


Rocketmiles-SIgn-UP

I love to travel – and one of the ways we are able to travel is by using miles for airline tickets. For years we have used our Alaska Airlines credit cards just like debit cards – paying them off each month – and we have flown free all over the country thanks to miles we’ve accrued.

One of the best ways to earn miles is to watch for FREE miles promotions – companies offering “bonus” miles for specific types of purchases.

Just this week I was introduced to RocketMiles.com - recommended to me in an Alaska Airlines newsletter – I’m already intrigued by this travel site! It’s been around awhile and the third-party endorsement from my favorite airline company was just the push I needed to give them a try.

Rocket-Miles-Alaska_Airlines

RocketMiles.com works like this:

1.) Create a free account with RocketMiles.com and add your favorite mileage programs to your account. I added my Alaska Airlines mileage number to my account.

2.) Book hotels (pay the same rates as you would through other travel deal sites)

3.) Earn bonus miles, up to 5,000 miles per NIGHT!

4.) RocketMiles credits those miles to the mileage account of your choice!

I got a targeted email with a 6,000 mile bonus offer and booked a hotel stay for a one-night getaway with my husband. I was able to get a Seattle-area hotel room for $149, PLUS I will get a 6,000 mile BONUS. Typically I’d have to spend $6,000 to get that many miles – so this is a major bonus for me on a weekend we had planned on getting a hotel anyway.

Rocketmiles-mileage-plans

They partner with a TON of airline mileage programs and are currently offering a referral bonus – 1,000 miles per friend you refer (who books a hotel) – which is also an amazing offer (yes, this post has my referral link).

If you sign up through my link here you’ll get a 1,000 mile bonus on your first hotel booking!

I’d love to hear if you’ve RocketMiles before!

The Benson Hotel (Portland, Oregon) – $129/night, flash sale


Benson-Hotel-Portland-deal

Jetsetter, one of my favorite flash sale sites for hotels/travel, has the Benson Hotel (Portland, Oregon) on sale for $129/night (reg. $179). In fact, I spotted this deal over the weekend and was able to book a night for a last minute kid-free getaway with my husband. . .

Oba-Happy-HourHappy Hour “dinner” at Oba

Thanks to this Jetsetter deal we stayed at the Benson Hotel last night and not only loved our room, but also loved the location! We were able to walk everywhere we wanted – including an amazing dinner via Happy Hour at Oba Restaurant (highly recommend the $5 margarita and happy hour nachos), a stop into Powell’s books (can’t miss that!) and even a drink at Henry’s Tavern. We met a friend of ours at Mother’s Bistro for breakfast this morning – also a short and enjoyable walk from our hotel.

We are already heading back to Olympia, but it was a fun 24-hour adventure – all started by this great bargain on the hotel from Jetsetter.

Here’s how Jetsetter works:

1.) Create a Jetsetter account here (it’s free and all they need is an email address)

2.) They have lots of Flash Sales, but scroll down until you see U.S. hotels and you should see the Benson hotel listed (or search for Benson in search field)

3.) Browse the calendar and pick your dates – it tells you the rate for the nights you choose

4.) Book your hotel stay through Jetsetter and you’re ready to go!

I’ve booked many hotel stays through Jetsetter – and I’ve always been impressed. They have a generous referral program – if you refer a friend they book a room, you get a $25 credit off your next reservation. So create a membership and share the news!
