Earn bonus United miles with your first hotel booking via Rocket Miles through September 30

Share via:

I’ve written before about using Rocket Miles when the time is right, to earn bonus United miles. At the time of my last post on Rocket Miles, I earned a 3,000 United miles bonus with my first booking. Currently, the bonus offer for your first booking is even better, with 4,000 United bonus miles on the table. If you haven’t booked using Rocket Miles yet, you might want to do it.

Key terms

  • The hotel must be booked by September 30, 2017, 11:59 PM CT
  • The hotel reservation must be booked via the Rocketmiles mobile app with promo code “united-card” OR via the Rocketmiles website using this promotional link rocketmiles.com/united-card
  • The hotel stay must be completed
  • Limited to first-time customers

One thing to note is that usually when using Rocket Miles, one forfeits any hotel points earnings on your stay. For this reason it’s always good to do the math, taking into consideration any separate hotel bonus offers, and determine which one produces the most value for you. Read my previous Rocket Miles post and see how with a 3,000 bonus, this was a way better deal than a hotel bonus offer.

Can you still earn bonus miles if you’ve done bookings before?

Sure you can. You just won’t earn this 4,000 bonus. That being said it all depends on your circumstances and what points are most important to you at that moment, the hotel’s or the airline’s.

In any case, Rocket Miles does provide yet another opportunity to beef up your United MileagePlus miles balance, and we wouldn’t want to leave thousands of miles on the table, would we?
