There’s a new Rocketmiles and KrisFlyer Bonus of up to 4,000 Miles available for new users to Rocketmiles the online hotel booking site.
Rocketmiles is an online hotel booking site that allows you to earn airline miles for your stays at hotels. You’ll earn a minimum of 500 Miles per night which can equate to a value of $S10 or more depending on your redemption of KrisFlyer Miles.
Stays at more expensive properties attract higher rates of course giving you a larger set of miles.
Rocketmiles and KrisFlyer 4,000 Miles Promotion
The current promotion is for new first time users of Rocketmiles (you could always use a new email address to be one), and the offers are tiered depending on you stays:
- Book at least a 1-night stay in a single hotel reservation and receive 1,000 KrisFlyer Miles or;
- Book at least a 3-night stay or more in a single hotel reservation and receive 4,000 KrisFlyer Miles
- Available for if you make a booking before the 31st August 2016
- You’ll earn the usual KrisFlyer Miles for the Booking which vary depending on the hotel – but you’ll get a minimum of 500 per booking (so a minimum of 1,500 for the first)
Here is the promotion pages for details:
This offer is not quite as generous as previous Rocketmiles sign-up offers as they haven’t had the restriction in terms of the 3 nights for the full 4,000 miles bonus. However this offer could work out really well if you’ve got a potential stay at a boutique hotel that you might not collect points from otherwise.
The prices for using a service like Rocketmiles or Kaligo are often more expensive than a traditional OTA like Expedia or through the hotel itself so you are effectively paying for the miles.
Note that with Rocketmiles as with Kaligo you won’t earn status credit or hotel points for your stay. Some brands will still give you benefits but it’s discretionary.
Other Earning Options
Don’t forget that Kaligo.com is a partner and has a wider selection of hotels. In addition they also have the Citibank credit cards in Singapore as partners – these can attract earning rates of 10 miles per $S1.
