Update: As of Sunday night, it’s finally working.
I’ve been using a Mac since the mid-80s, so I’m excited to see that American has finally released a version of their DealFinder software that works with a Mac. Haven’t tried it yet, but here’s how it’s described in the FAQ on their site:
DealFinder is a downloadable desktop tool offered by American Airlines which allows you to receive automatic, personalized fare alerts and other information via your computer desktop. Once you download the tool and set your travel preferences, DealFinder will alert you about deals to your favorite destinations. By creating searches for your upcoming trips, DealFinder will also show you the current lowest prices and alert you when the price is at or belowyour target price. The application can also help you stay up to date with news, information and promotions from American Airlines.
Go here to download and test it yourself. Feel free to share your thoughts, review or experience in the comments section.
Have a great weekend!
(Editor’s Note: I forgot to mention it, but American also released an update to their AA.com iPhone app and added this cool, new feature: “If an upgrade was requested and not yet confirmed at check-in, you now have the ability to put yourself on the upgrade standby list”. Go here for details.)
