I received an email today that American Airlines in partnership with Rocketmiles is again offering a 3,000 bonus for first time customers. I remembered seeing a similar promotion back in 2013, and View from the Wing mentioned it was available again back in March, so for those of you that missed the promotion and wanted to book, here’s your chance.
When you book a hotel using Rocketmiles, you can select from 14 partners. If you choose American Airlines, you’ll earn between 1,000 and 5,000 AAdvantage miles for each night booked.
The first time customer bonus is this – If you book before October 31,2014 and complete a stay by April 30, 2015 they’ll also give you 3,000 bonus AAdvantage miles.
Here’s a booking link, which you must use to receive the bonus miles.
I have my earnings partner set to American Airlines, but haven’t yet booked something. Rocketmiles doesn’t yet offer hotels in many of the cities that I travel to, but this promotion gives me good incentive to book if I find some that I want to stay at.
A good thing about this promotion is that it doesn’t actually require you to book immediately. As long as you sign up using the link, you can book a hotel before October 31, 2014 and still qualify for the bonus miles.
Have you booked a hotel using Rocketmiles?
