Rocketrip Travelers Earn an Average of $119 per Trip.

That’s a lot! But the headline number doesn’t tell the whole story. Some Rocketrip super-savers have earned over $1,000 in rewards on a single trip. Other users build up rewards by doing small things like booking their trips in advance or checking travel sites for the best flight and hotel deals. 

As many ways as there are to save on business travel, there are even more ways to spend what you earn. Here are some of our favorite examples:

    Caitlin is a Senior Account Manager based out of New York City. She earned over $1,500 in rewards during a cross-country series of client visits by staying with friends in Austin, Chicago and Los Angeles. She used those earnings to pay for her next trip - a vacation to Barcelona.

    Michelle lives in Columbus, Ohio, where flight options tend to be limited and expensive. When she had to be in Detroit for a series of client meetings, she decided to drive. By eliminating the cost of flying she earned $213 worth of Rocketrip Points, which she used on a blazer from J.Crew.

      James, a software implementation specialist based out of Philadelphia, spent a week in Dallas working at a client’s office. He beat his hotel budget by booking an Airbnb loft downtown. The $740 he earned in rewards went a long way, paying for his vacation to Hawaii

    Meredith covered the entire cost of a recent trip to Toronto by redeeming some of her frequent flyer miles and hotel loyalty points. By effectively converting her miles and points into cash at an exchange rate much more favorable than those offered by airlines and hotels, she earned enough to buy herself an iPad.

        Kevin stayed at his brother’s place on a trip from Seattle to Denver. He earned $186 during his one-night trip - enough to take his brother out to dinner, and to buy a pair of noise-canceling headphones for himself.

    Greg’s company policy allowed him to fly business class on his trip from Boston to San Francisco, but he chose coach instead. That alone earned him $420 in rewards. Factoring in his hotel savings for the two-night trip, Greg earned enough for a $500 American Express cash card. Not bad!

    Mike travels often as a Director of Sales. On his trip from Chicago to Charlotte he changed up his normal routine, flying Southwest instead of American, and staying at a Courtyard instead of a Marriott. All told he earned $161 in rewards, which he used to buy his daughter a swing set. Saving on his trip was easy -- assembling the swing set was a different story.

    Ben earned $45 worth of Rocketrip points just by beating his hotel budget on a recent trip from London to his company’s branch office in Hamburg. He combined his points with those he earned on another trip to buy a pair of Ray-Bans. Two quick trips, one new pair of shades.

    Laura earned $159 in rewards on a trip from Washington D.C. to Los Angeles by booking a cheap flight out of Dulles Airport instead of Reagan National, and finding a deal on a room at the boutique Shelter Hotel. She used her Rocketrip Points to buy a power drill. It was a birthday present for her dad, who’d been dropping hints for months.
