Hey jetsetters, today we’re talking: Rocketmiles Review + Rocketmiles Bonus Points!!
Over on the ‘gram, I get a lot of DMs asking how I’m able to travel so much. And while yes, some of my travel is for work, where I’m partnering with different travel companies and brands on media trips, I’d say at least half of my travel is booked by yours truly.
So I really need to be smart about how I’m booking my trips and keeping up on all of the best ways to earn rewards. Credit card points, airline miles, and rewards programs are all pieces of the travel puzzle, but I’m about to blow your mind with one of my favorite booking platforms—Rocketmiles!
In this Rocketmiles Review post, I’m going to get all up in the nitty-gritty of what Rocketmiles is, specific examples of its magic, and how I use it. And just so you have the juicy stuff upfront, make sure you use my link when you book with them to earn Rocketmiles bonus points (25% MORE rewards!): rocketmiles.com/wtfab.
Ok, so what is Rocketmiles and why do I love it? Rocketmiles is a travel booking platform with the most amazing flexibility I’ve ever seen.
When you book a hotel through Rocketmiles, you earn airline miles. And on both the hotel and airline sides, they have pretty much every hotel chain and airline you could ever want available—like I’ve never gone to book a hotel and been like oh no it’s not here.
And they have all of my favorite airlines on there (Alaska Airlines, Southwest, Norwegian, just to name a few).
I first learned about Rocketmiles when I was working on the events team at Google. Since the team traveled so much for work, everyone had their favorite rewards credit cards, memberships (RIP Starwood Elite Status benefits), and rewards programs that they were very into.
One of my coworkers showed me Rocketmiles, and I was blown away. I feel like airlines are the trickiest to rack up miles for because I’m usually just looking for a good price when I’m booking a flight, and any miles that I earn end up getting spread thinly across all the many different airlines that I fly. Enter, Rocketmiles.
So let’s look at a specific example of how Rocketmiles works. Let’s say you’re taking a week-long trip to New York and you’re looking to book a hotel.
First, be sure to use my link rocketmiles.com/wtfab to earn an extra 25% more miles (!!). You’d enter your trip destination and dates, and then select the airline that you want to earn miles for.
Let’s go with one of my fav airlines, Alaska Airlines. Rocketmiles will then show me all the available hotels in NYC for my dates, along with the amount of Alaska miles I would earn.
Right now, it’s showing offers like the Arlo NoMad for $178 a night, and a week-long stay there would earn me 12,500 miles with Alaska Airlines (usually it would be 10,000 miles, but remember, we’re using my link for 25% more miles, so we’re getting 2,500 bonus miles!).
For perspective, I can book a roundtrip ticket from SFO to JFK on Alaska for 12,500 miles! So you’d be able to book a flight for another big vacay, just by booking your hotel through Rocketmiles! I told you—magic.
Especially if you are booking travel for work that your company is paying for, you should definitely be booking those hotels through Rocketmiles! Literally, all of the free vacation flights.
Back when Starwood was alive and well and I was getting all those Starwood Elite benefits I was pretty loyal to that program and I booked a lot of my work trips with my Starwood American Express card at Starwood hotels, and would book other hotels through Rocketmiles.
But now Starwood is a thing of the past, I am VERY into Rocketmiles.
To maximize my points situation, I’ve done a lot of research on credit card offers and which one would make the most sense for me and lifestyle, and I decided on the Chase Sapphire Reserve card.
Also, check out the Chase Sapphire Preferred card if you’re looking for something with a lower annual fee and if you only travel a few times a year (Btw, their current credit card offer is to earn 50,000 bonus points when you sign up).
Either way, I always use my Chase card when I’m booking a hotel on Rocketmiles so I earn the 3x points per dollar spent on travel.
At this point you’re probably wondering about the pricing of the hotels on Rocketmiles, so let’s do another example, shall we?
Let’s look for a hotel in San Francisco. Right now, for the dates July 16 – 18th, the St Regis has the top offer in terms of reward miles.
On Rocketmiles it’s listed as $494 per night, and when I checked Booking.com and the hotel’s website, the price was also $494 per night. Sweet.
Alrighty, that was a long review, but hopefully I laid it out so you could really understand the magic and value of booking your hotels through Rocketmiles! I personally can’t wait to book my next trip with them!
