A few weeks ago, I got an invitation to the Disney Social Media Moms conference in Phoenix. Since the invite, I’ve been really looking forward to the trip, for many reasons. I was also thrilled that my trip was going to be very affordable, thanks to a few different points and miles redemptions and strategies, one of which was booking a hotel room with TravelPony.
However, I kept having a feeling that maybe my hotel choice wasn’t ideal. The host hotel for the conference is the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, which is a good 20-minute drive from the hotel I had chosen. However, I had gotten such a good deal on TravelPony that I hesitated to change my plans…but I kept wondering if that was a good decision.
I just couldn’t make up my mind. Finally, a couple of days ago, I was inspired to make a change. My motivation? A Rocketmiles promotion.
As a first-time purchaser, I would get 3,000 bonus miles from the promotion, plus the usual 1,000 miles from booking the Fairmont Scottsdale through Rocketmiles.
Currently my account is showing that I will also get 1,000 miles from using a friend’s referral link, but I’m not sure if that is the case. We will see.
I’ve never used Rocketmiles before, mainly because I’ve focused on award stays, with the occasional TravelPony cheapie thrown in. However, under the circumstances (Rocketmiles was offering the hotel I wanted, at a comparable price to other sites, plus the 4,000 or 5,000 mile bonus), I decided to give them a shot.
If you’ve got a similar situation coming up and you want to take advantage of this promo as well, here’s how to get it:
