Despite the amazing award possibilities, we recognise that earning Alaska miles can be difficult when based in Europe. So when an opportunity comes along to cost-effectively earn a few thousand miles in Europe, it’s worth paying attention!
Alaska Airlines Hotels – click here to access the website – is offering 2,000 bonus miles for hotel stays booked before 30 June, 2019.
You will also earn at least 500 ‘standard’ miles per night too, although many more miles are often offered…
If you think that the formatting looks familiar, it is because Alaska Airlines Hotels is managed by Rocketmiles. If you’ve seen Rocketmiles before, you are probably aware that their hotel rates are usually higher than other alternatives, but this price gap is often well rewarded with a sizeable chunk of airline miles.
Here’s a quick example that I found. I probably would never want to stay at the 1-star Dolphin Inn, but I reckon that 3,500 Alaska miles could be worth at least £55 of the £107 to be spent on that 2-night weekend stay…
Here are the T&Cs of the 2,000 bonus mile promotion:
To be eligible, the hotel reservation must be booked using this promotional link (www.alaskaair.com/hotels/mp/alaska-welcome/en/) by 11:59PM CT on 30 June 2019. Strictly limited to first-time customers and subject to investigation post-purchase. Limit one per customer. Limit one per stay. Bonus only applies to marked eligible properties. Promotional offer can not be applied to existing bookings or retroactively applied to bookings not made using the link above. Promotional offer cannot be combined with any other bonuses or offers.
Rocketmiles reserves the right to retract a bonus at any time if it detects fraud, stacking of bonuses, technical errors, cancel/rebooking activity (defined by identical search criteria), or ANY other deceptive behavior attempted to circumvent the limits expressed above. See www.alaskaair.com/hotels/terms for full terms, or email our friendly concierges at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although there is some scary wording in there, I don’t see anything that specifically prohibits a current Rocketmiles customer from enjoying the bonus for booking on “Alaska Airlines Hotels”. So, if you’re looking for a few thousand Alaska miles, perhaps you’ll want to see whether booking a hotel makes financial sense…
