About RocketMiles

Rocketmiles launched in 2013 to allow frequent fliers to earn previously unheard of quantities of loyalty program miles and points when booking rooms at high-quality hotels. For consumers, Rocketmiles makes saving up for incredible vacations faster and easier. For hotels, Rocketmiles means being able to offer high-value customers inventory that would have otherwise gone unsold — without weakening the brand through public discounting. Based in Chicago and Boston, and backed by top-tier strategic venture firms, the company is founded by travel and loyalty veterans Jay Hoffmann, Bjorn Larsen, and Kris Helenek.
