The third-party hotel reservation site Rocketmiles is giving away 500 miles for trading in an unwanted gift. The gift can be ANYTHING! So lets say you received a toothbrush you do not want, send it in and you’ll receive 500 points after you next booking! For those that book hotel reservations through this site, you might as well take part in the promotion.
For those that have no idea what Rocketmiles is, here you go: It is a third-party hotel reservation site were you earn airline miles for your stay. While they do not have too many hotels on their site, if you are able to book through them, you can earn thousands of airline miles. The one caveat is that since you are booking your hotel stay through a third-party site typically you will not earn hotel points (although sometimes it slips through the cracks and you will – this is the case when booking through all third-party hotel sites).
Participating airlines include: Aeroplan, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, British Airways Avios, AeroMexico, Delta, Etihad, AirFrance/KLM, Frontier, Hawaiian Airlines, Iceland Air, Jet Privileges, JetBlue, Malaysia Airlines, Norwegian, Qatar, Royal Jordanian, Saudia, Southwest, Turkish Airlines, United, US Airways, and Virgin America.
Hotel rates are the same as the best available rate if you were to book directly with the hotel. However, this dosen’t account for other discounts – AAA, Corporate Rates, Specials, etc. So ALWAYS ensure that you are getting the best rate possible. And also calculate out what you’d prefer – the airline miles or the hotel points. Rocketmiles states that you’ll earn stays/nights towards status with the hotel (assuming they have a loyalty program), but since this is a third-party site, there is no guarentee. You’d have to call the hotel and ask.
