Rocketmiles is a hotel booking site where you can earn airline miles with American AAdvantage, Delta SkyMiles, HawaiianMiles, United MileagePlus, and US Airways Dividend Miles.for your hotel bookings.  In some cases, you can earn a lot of airline miles.  The downside of the site is that you generally won’t earn hotel points or elite status credit on your stays since they are booked via this third party, but I know not everyone cares about hotel elite status on every trip.  For example, if you are staying at a chain you rarely stay at, or that doesn’t participate in a points program at all, it can make sense to instead rack up a load of airline miles on your booking.

To celebrate their two month anniversary – today only (June 5th) they are offering 2x miles on all bookings. 
The increased amounts are the ones displayed on the site.

As part of their data from the first two months it seems that their average customer is earning 7,000 miles per booking and is spending an average of $195 a night in cities like New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Atlanta and Los Angeles.  The most miles received from a single hotel stay was 31,000 miles for a 4-night stay in New York.

Rocketmiles only displays a select number of “premium” hotels in select cities, but it can be a great way to rack up a lot of miles if you have a hotel stay.  If you have been wanting to try them out then today is a great day to do it since the miles you earned are double the normal rate!

    Thanks MP. I’ve booked a few reservations over the next six months that hit the sweet spot for me. 7,000 miles a night at the Sofitel in Redwood City for $230 a night was something I couldn’t stay away from.

    People should understand that these are prepaid though you can cancel them. I’ve found that emailing concierge@rocketmiles.com works just fine if you have to cancel. Just do it three days ahead or whatever the reservation requires.

    @Paul G: Yup, no double dipping here, unlike PointsHound. PointsHound has some rates at some hotels that allow double dipping–both extra miles and status/nights towards status at the chain. But of course the trade-off that the miles you earn are much lower, typically 400/500 miles a night. Of course they also offer a LOT more hotels in a LOT more cities.
