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.
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.
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!
