More Earning Power for Rocketmiles Customers

Add to Favorites:

Rocketmiles, a Chicago-based hotel booking site launched in April, specializes in offering members bonus miles and points for staying in hotels featured on their site.

They recently expanded their hotel inventory from the initial 15 cities they had properties in to 100 destinations. They have also partnered with additional frequent flyer programs to provide their customers with more travel reward possibilities.

What are Rocketmiles?

When customers book rooms through Rocketmiles they earn bonus points and miles if they belong to one of the frequent flyer programs Rocketmiles has partnered with. On average their customers earn 7,000 miles per trip, according to the booking site. If someone takes a dozen trips a year they can earn up to 80,000 miles annually.

The hotel rooms featured on the Rocketmiles site are vetted by their staffs, who are experienced in the travel industry whether as a travel agent, concierge or avid traveler. However, the number of hotels listed per city is not as extensive other hotel booking sites.

Also, Rocketmiles is not a discount hotel site. Their prices are on par with some other travel sites, with customers often spending $195 per night for a stay in a 4-star hotel.

More cities

When Rocketmiles was launched in the Spring, they offered access to hotels in only 15 location including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Honolulu, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.. However, with this expansion the number has gone up to 100, and includes international destinations, like London, Tokyo, and Paris.

More frequent flyer programs

Rocketmiles initially partnered up with four frequent flyer programs — American AAdvantage, Delta SkyMiles, United MileagePlus, and HawaiianMiles – in order to help customers earn bonus miles and points when they booked a room.

With their recent expansion they now have partnerships up with nine frequent flyer programs and airlines. The most recent additions are, Jet Blue’s Flying Blue, Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan and Virgin America Elevate.

With the expansion into European and Asian markets, they have also partnered with international frequent flyer programs and airlines, including Air France/KLM and Etihad Airways. For more information, go to
