The hotel booking site Rocketmiles is offering 5x miles when you opt for earning Avianca LifeMiles (oppose to another partner loyalty program). This is an incredible way to “purchase” LifeMiles cheaply and also get a hotel stay out of it. This promotion goes through 5pm EST TODAY September 19th. To take advantage of this offer, you must book through the LifeMiles Hotels site here (although it is really the Rocketmiles site).
How This Works…
When using this site to book your hotel, you are earning partner airline miles/points instead of the individual hotel sites points. So if you were to book a Hyatt hotel, for example, you will NOT earn Hyatt points. Instead you’ll be earning LifeMiles miles – so it is up to you on which currency you’d rather earn. This is especially a great promotion if you are looking to book a stay at an independent hotel where you wouldn’t earn hotel points anyways. You are also paying the normal hotel price, not a premium, although you can sometimes do better directly through the hotel by using some sort of discount, i.e., AAA, corporate code, etc.
With this offer, earning 5x points is amazing! I actually have never earned/redeemed LifeMiles before, but they do have a good award chart, have a lot of partner airlines (so you can redeem your LifeMiles on a slew of airlines), and there are no fuel charges (which can be huge!). For example, this hotel in Orlando costing $249/night will earn you 25,000 miles – that is huge as when you go to redeem your miles they should be significantly worth more then $249 in value.
So you can think of this as just buying miles on the cheap, or getting a free hotel stay. Either way you look at it, for those looking to accrue LifeMiles, this is definitely a promotion I suggest looking into! But you have less then 3 hours to do this, so go now!
