New Offer From GolfMiles – Earn 3,000 Miles for Playing a Single Round of Golf

Last month I broke the news to the points & miles world about Golfmiles, a website golfers could use to book tee times and earn thousands of miles for playing golf. I was able to my offer my readers an exclusive bonus of 1,500 miles at that time but I’m happy to report I have negotiated an even higher bonus mile offer of 2,500 miles. And if you choose to earn AA miles, this offer is increased to 3,000 miles! This is the highest ever bonus mile offer from Golfmiles and this is an exclusive offer for PointsCentric readers only. The AA offer is only valid through September 1st and after that time will drop down to 2,500 miles until September 10th.

This offer can be increased to 3,000 miles if you choose AA miles

In order to receive 3,000 miles with your first booking, you must do the following:

  • New customers must signup via my referral link here (full disclaimer: I do receive a small amount of miles for each person who signs up and completes a booking).
  • Choose to receive American Airlines AAdvantage miles as the miles earned. This offer is only valid if you choose AA miles
  • The first tee time must cost $30 or more

Note: The website will initially show 2,500 miles as your offer – I am working on having the landing page show the special AA offer. If you do not meet the above criteria, such as wanting to earn United miles or the tee time is less than $30, you would earn 2,500 miles.

I recommend reading my previous post about Golfmiles but their website aggregates local tee times at golf courses and awards an amount of miles each time you book a round of golf through them. I have generally seen the miles awarded per round range from 250-2,300 miles though with this signup bonus offer, you could earn 3,250 to 5,300 AA miles for one round of golf. The value of these miles could be worth more than the cost of your round of golf! You can also choose to earn a gift card to use towards future rounds of golf instead of miles.

Through my research, I found Golfmiles offered the same or even some lower prices than my local courses. I’ve had several readers book through them without any issues and they all earned thousands of miles for playing a round of golf they would have played anyway. I encourage you to give them a try with the knowledge that this offer is the best ever offer for Golfmiles. The public signup bonus is only 1,500 miles and no other blogger has a better current offer.

If you have any questions or concerns, please post them in the comments or email me at ralph@pointscentric.com and I can assist in having Golfmiles address it if I can’t answer it.

Introducing Golfmiles: Earn Thousands of Miles for Booking Rounds of Golf with Golfmiles

Being heavily invested in the travel hacking game, I thought I knew most of the ways one could earn miles. We all know we can earn miles from credit cards, bank accounts, brokerage accounts and even for filling out surveys, dining out, shopping online etc., but I just learned about a new method I’ve never heard about. You can earn thousands of miles for booking golf tee times with Golfmiles and I’ve partnered up with them to offer PointsCentric readers an exclusive 1,500 bonus miles on your first booking. Plus they are giving away 50,000 miles to celebrate their launch!

This offer is exclusively for PointsCentric readers

Golfmiles is a new startup that is essentially an online booking site that aggregates all the available tee times at participating courses and rewards you with miles for every tee time through them. Golfmiles sounds quite similar to Rocketmiles or PointsHound but instead of hotel rooms, it is for rounds of golf instead. Golfmiles claims to have over 6,000 participating courses at this time.

Currently, Golfmiles awards miles in the following programs:

  • American Airlines AAdvantage
  • Etihad Guest
  • Frontier Airlines Early Returns
  • Hawaiian Airlines HawaiianMiles
  • IcelandAir Saga Points
  • Southwest Rapid Rewards
  • JetBlue TrueBlue
  • United MileagePlus
  • Virgin America Elevate Points
  • Virgin Atlantic Flying Club

I’ve been playing around on the site which offers an easy, user friendly interface that seems to offer a wide range of options from the testing I’ve done. To test it, I searched for tee times for next weekend on Long Island and also searched for a tee time next Wednesday to see how the results compared.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, there was a ton more availability on the weekday instead of the weekend. For next Wednesday, you can book almost 600 different tee times across 31 different courses. Depending on the course and tee time, you could earn anywhere from 100 miles to 1440 miles and that’s before the 1,500 bonus miles for your first booking.

Looking at the results for a tee time next weekend, there are less tee times available but interestingly the mileage payouts are a little bit higher. I was little surprised to see that but perhaps the course isn’t as nice (I’m not familiar enough with the courses to say). If you combined the first booking bonus of 1,500 miles to the below, that’s 3,420 miles for booking a single round of golf – not too shabby!

The big question about Golfmiles is whether their prices were competitive and in my limited testing, it certainly appears so. In almost every case I was able to match the rate Golfmiles produced to the rate on the course’s website though in come cases I couldn’t find the same tee times available on the course’s website. For instance, the Willow Creek Golf booking above was not available on the course’s site but the times surrounding indicate the rate from Golfmiles is actually cheaper.

As mentioned earlier, I worked with Golfmiles to offer my readers an extra 1,500 bonus miles on your first booking if you signup via my link here. In the interest of full disclosure, I will receive a small amount of miles for every person who signs up for Golfmiles via my link and books a round of golf through them. To my knowledge, this is the best current offer for signing up for Golfmiles as I’ve been told this offer is only available through my referral link.

Additionally, to celebrate their launch Golfmiles is giving away 50,000 miles and non-golfers are eligible as well. You do not need to signup for Golfmiles to be eligible. Simply enter here via this link and fill out some basic information. 

It will be interesting to see if Golfmiles takes off but it is always nice to see another option for earning extra miles for activities you already do. If anyone has any questions about Golfmiles, please let me know and I’ll be happy to forward them on to my contact.
