If you’re a part of any of the airline frequent flyer miles program, you may not be aware of the fact that you can earn thousands of miles by staying at some of the select hotels. Launched today, RocketMiles will allow you to earn miles just by booking rooms that the website serves up directly.
Like the partnership programs with credit-card companies, Rocketmiles also buys miles from the airlines which it then ties to stays with its partner hotels. Rocketmiles supports 15 cities in the U.S. and plans to expand to even more markets over the next few months, adding about one to two cities per week.
Targeting business travelers mainly, Rocketmiles delivers hand-picked selection of premium hotels as opposed to the hundreds of search results which aggregators offer. So basically you are paying the same price as other websites may offer but with an incentive to earn miles. The service is focused only on stays where at least 1,000 miles can be earned.
