American Airlines Launches DealFinder 2.0, Helping Customers Spend Less Tiem Searching And More Time Saving


FORT WORTH, Texas | Aug. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — American Airlines has enhanced the customized fare-search process by upgrading DealFinder(SM), its downloadable desktop tool that sends customers automatic, personalized fare alerts and special discounts via their computer desktop. This upgraded version, called DealFinder 2.0, is compatible with Mac® computers from Apple®, as well as with Windows® and Linux® computer operating systems.

Along with greater compatibility, DealFinder 2.0 offers:

How Does it Work?

DealFinder 2.0 is easily downloaded onto a computer desktop and alerts customers if fares matching their pre-selected searches become available. Customers simply enter where they want to go, how much they’d like to spend, their travel dates and how many people will be traveling. DealFinder 2.0 lets customers know the current lowest fare and then keeps checking for their desired fare. If it finds a match, customers will receive an alert right on their desktop. Customers can even specify their preferences on destination types – such as beach/resort, golf, or ski destinations – and can receive exclusive promotions just for DealFinder members each time a match to their preferences is offered.

“Our customers invest a lot of time looking for deals, so we’re pleased to be able to offer a convenient way for those exciting deals to find them,” said Richard Elieson, American’s Managing Director – Interactive Marketing. “We continually strive to improve the travel experience for our customers, and DealFinder 2.0, with its added convenience and improved savings, can make shopping for airline tickets easier than ever.”
