Competitions

I discovered this fantastic competition on my friends’ excellent Avios boosting and travel review website, Head for Points. This is one of the exciting travel competitions around in terms of being a ‘must win’ prize.

One lucky entrant will, at midnight on Friday (tomorrow!), win a brand new Apple Watch (see my review of the Apple Watch) plus 50,000 Virgin Flying Club miles! With an Apple Watch selling for £479, and roughly 1p of value from each Virgin Atlantic mile, you are looking at a prize pot of £1,000!

The sponsor of this generosity is hotel booking site Rocketmiles. It has just launched a new partnership with Virgin Flying Club.

Rocketmiles is a specialist hotel booking site which allows you to earn a substantial amount of airline miles with every room booking.
The company has a deep inventory of rooms available across the world. Both cancellable and non-cancellable room are available (all bookings must be prepaid but cancellable rooms are fully refundable). Each booking earns you a generous amount of miles in your chosen airline programme. Whilst this competition focusses on promoting the new Rocketmiles partnership with Virgin Flying Club, they also work with 29 other airline programmes.

As with any third party hotel booking, you will usually not earn any stay credit or points from the hotel stay where you stay. You may get your elite status recognised, depending on the hotel. This is, of course, offset by the generous amount of miles that Rocketmiles will deposit in your airline account after your stay!

To promote their new partnership with Virgin Atlantic, Rocketmiles is offering 3,000 bonus Virgin Flying Club miles to new customers when they make their first booking using this link.This is valid on any booking of any size. It is on top of the standard amount of Virgin Flying Club miles you will earn. This is clearly a very attractive deal – and if you book a cheap one night stay to trigger the miles, it will be an excellent deal! You have until July 31st to make your booking and the stay can be for a date even further into the future.

For clarity, you do not need to make a booking to enter the competition and you enter the Head for Points competition here.
