The Rocketmiles Offer that Prompted my First Booking

Although this targeted offer is no longer available, Rocketmiles was offering 5,000 bonus miles for your first booking. I had some stays coming up so I jumped on this opportunity!

I needed a hotel in Seattle area so when I searched, I found a pretty decent deal at the Clarion near the airport.

Clarion hotel SEASince this is a Choice Privileges hotel, I wasn’t concerned about earning their hotel points, I would much rather earn the 6k United miles that would be coming my way!

I did check HotelsCombined.com to see if it was a comparable rate that I would be paying and it was!

This seemed like a great deal to me for a hotel booking I needed to make anyways. An offer I couldn’t refuse 🙂

Update: Read about the subsequent posting of my miles to my account here

  1. I hope your first Rocketmiles booking goes better than mine did. I booked a hotel room in Atlanta for $130 through Rocketmiles, and when I showed up at the hotel they had no reservation for me (I should have called to confirm). I had to pay for the booking again, and hotel charged me $40 less than Rocketmiles had. It took a LONG time to get Rocketmiles to reimburse me, and even longer to get the promised air miles. I know a lot of people love them, but I’ll never use them again.

      Thanks for the advice. I’ll call to make sure that my room is reserved for and hopefully everything will run smoothly.
