To celebrate Rocketmiles’ new partnership with Alaska Airlines, Mileage Plan members who are first-time Rocketmiles users will receive 3,000 bonus miles upon their first Rocketmiles hotel booking, in addition to the usual earnings of 1,000 to 5,000 miles for each hotel night booked through Rocketmiles.

Rocketmiles is a hotel search engine and booking app that works with premium hotel and resort partners around the globe to offer customers who book rooms the perk of earning bonus miles with Aeroplan, Air France/KLM, American Airlines, Delta, Etihad, Frontier, Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue, Qatar, Southwest, Turkish Airlines, United, US Airways, Virgin America – and now Alaska Airlines, as well.

This promotion must be booked through this dedicated link by 11:59 PM CT on September 30, 2014, and check-out must occur by February 28, 2015.

Rocketmiles can be a lucrative way to rack up bonus miles on reservations where you wouldn’t normally earn hotel points or status, and these bonus miles can in some cases be more valuable than the points and/or status you’d earn with the hotel loyalty program. (Occasionally, the site offers its own dedicated bonus sign-up offers.) Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan enables you to earn and redeem miles for award travel on 14 airline partners to over 700 destinations, and having flown with them this year for the first time, I definitely recommend them as a carrier, especially for their service and award availability.

With this bonus, some Rocketmiles hotel bookings can earn you as much as 13,000 Mileage Plan miles for as little as a two-night stay at properties that tend to range between $200-400 a night. If you have hotel stays on the horizon and you’re looking to rack up a stash of Mileage Plan miles, this promotion is a good opportunity.

    How is this different from their typical offer for first-time users? (Serious question. Not snarky.)

    Reasonable question. It’s because (all other things being equal) Mileage Plan miles are more valuable than any of the others offered by Rocketmiles. Having Alaska as an earning option makes Rocketmiles much more attractive.

    Quick rocketmiles question…do the miles quoted on rocketmiles accrue to alaska at 1:1?

  • Christian

    Are you sure this is new? I got the same about a half year ago. Admittedly, the partnership may have been discontinued, then restarted. Do you think this is the case? If so, I may try for another 1st time bonus.

  • Redpanda

    Yes

  • Michael Kao

    I don’t think this is a good offer. Yes, the miles seem attractive but at same time Rocketmile charges more.

    I was looking for a hotel stay in Tokyo next Feb. Rocketmile charges $191/nt and offer 7000 miles for 3 nights stay including the bonus. While other hotel booking sites like agoda (which I can earn Krisflyer miles) charges $134. $57 difference is more than enough for me to buy 2000 (6000 miles for 3 nights!) Alaska miles at the normal price, and during the bonus promotion, I can easily buy more than 7000 miles with the price difference.

    I guess the best value would be a one off one night stay and get the 4000 miles (inc bonus).

    They don’t always charge more. You have to check to make sure the price is at least the same to make it worthwhile. I’ve used Rocketmiles in the past for these types of promotions with AA and SW and was able to find rooms that cost the same as any other hotel site.
