5,000 Bonus AA Miles After First Stay Through Rocketmiles

Last week, I wrote about Rocketmiles' hotel booking site, and how they were enticing frequent flyers with a standard 1,000-mile bonus, with 3,000 bonus miles to some airlines, for booking and completing their first stay through the site, no minimum stay length required.

Alaska Airlines flyers were treated to a 5,000 miles signup bonus.

Today, Rocketmiles comes out with a 5,000 mile offer for American Airlines flyers. Just book before April 15, 11:59pm CT.

To ensure that you receive the bonus:

  • Sign up for a Rocketmiles account by clicking on this link, which leads you to the AA bonus signup page (even though a pop-up window will indicate a 1,000-mile bonus; ignore that).
  • The tricky part: Go back to that same link to the AA-specific page to search and make your first reservation. 
    • I've been told by Rocketmiles that if the booking is completed on a different page, the bonus will not be applied. 
    • Also, the bonus is null and void if someone cancels their first booking to make another one.
Follow the steps above and you should be able to get a one-night hotel stay for ~$100+ and 5,000 miles... not a bad return!

Disclosure: The links above will give me a small referral credit, for which I would be truly appreciative.

The full terms and conditions:
To be eligible for this promotion, the hotel reservation must be booked via the Rocketmiles mobile app with promo code "AA5000" OR using this promotional link by 11:59PM CT on April 15, 2015. Limited to first time customers and subject to investigation post-purchase. Limit one per customer. Limit one per stay. Promotional offer cannot be applied to existing bookings or retroactively applied to bookings not made using the link above. This promotional offer cannot be combined with any other offers, including a sign-up from referral bonus. Rocketmiles reserves the right to retract a bonus at any time if it detects technical errors, cancel/rebooking activity (defined by identical search criteria), or any deceptive behavior attempted to circumvent the limits expressed above, including multiple accounts. Please allow 2 weeks for bonus points to post in a qualifying member's account after hotel stay is completed and the qualifying member has met the stated conditions. If Rocketmiles is not contacted directly with a refund request until after miles/points have already been posted, any approved refund amount may be reduced by up to the full retail value of the reward. Rewards that cannot be posted due to incorrect or incomplete information may become ineligible after 12 months and no customer response to our e-mail outreach. See for full terms, or call Rocketmiles concierges at 1-855-355-7625 with questions of eligibility or for any other assistance. Please contact your loyalty program directly for information about redeeming miles/points, or for questions about earning miles/points for past flights. American Airlines reserves the right to change the AAdvantage® program and its terms and conditions at any time without notice, and to end the AAdvantage® program with six months notice. Any such changes may affect your ability to use the awards or mileage credits that you have accumulated. Unless specified, AAdvantage® miles earned through this promotion/offer do not count toward elite-status qualification or AAdvantage Million MilerSM status. American Airlines is not responsible for products or services offered by other participating companies.
