Rocketmiles is offering double Qatar Airways Privilege Club Qmiles on all hotel bookings — and not just for new customers, either.
The promotion for one booking made by November 5. The original terms and conditions said “limited to first time customers” but I pointed this out and Rocketmiles updated the terms to remove this restriction.
What’s really great here is that despite language suggesting the maximum earn is 20,000 miles per night, you can actually earn 30,000 miles per night.
A search of November 24 (one night) in New York found 4 hotels offering 30,000 miles per night. Here’s the Grand Hyatt New York:
It’s a very expensive night for the property, but you’re not actually paying more for the room to get the miles.
Since it’s a third party booking though you do give up earning Hyatt points for the stay and the one thing I hate most about the new World of Hyatt program is that they no longer recognize elite status benefits on third party bookings.
Nonetheless, this is a strong rebate for hotel bookings where you’re not focused on earning elite night credit or placing substantial value on elite benefits.
Terms and conditions:
This offer is strictly limited to Rocketmiles customers. To be eligible for this promotion, the hotel reservation must be booked via the Rocketmiles mobile app with promo code “qatar-double” OR using this promotional link (www.rocketmiles.com/qatar-double) by 11:59PM CT on 5 November 2017. Rewards are 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 Qmiles 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 Qmiles 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.
