Frequent Flyers: Track Your Mileage in One Place for Free!

Placely Launches New Free Frequent Flyer Miles Tracking Service for 13 Domestic Airlines Including American Airlines, Delta, Continental, Jet Blue and Southwest

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - June 25, 2008) - Placely (http://www.placely.com), the social network for travelers, launches a free service to allow members to make the most of their frequent flyer miles. Many frequent travelers spend a significant amount of time logging into individual airline websites to see how many miles they have on each airline. With this new service, Placely members will be able to see their up-to-date frequent flyer miles data in one central area, without having to log into a dozen different airline websites.

Members can now take advantage of the free frequent flyer miles tracking service offered exclusively at Placely.com. Currently, this service supports the following airlines: Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Continental Airlines, Delta Airlines, Frontier Airlines, Hawaiian Airline, Jet Blue, Midwest Airlines, Northwest Airlines, Southwest Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways and Virgin America.

"As a frequent flyer, I know how difficult it is to keep track of my miles," said Denis Khoo, CEO and Co-Founder. "With Placely, we hope users are able to make the most of not only their miles, but their entire trip experience."

Placely integrates all the travel-related features of popular media and social networking sites, such as Flickr, Tripit, Trip Advisor, Dopplr, Blogger and Facebook, into a single platform. Members can "experience" sharing travel plans and trip updates while staying connected through distinctive group features and a travel network platform. Placely users can log in, update their location and easily connect with family back home or find fellow trekkers to meet while traveling between destinations.

Founded in 2007 and based in Los Angeles, Placely is transforming social networking for road warriors and other frequent travelers with its capacity to geographically map friends, family and colleagues at any given time -- past, present and future. Founded by social, leisure and business travelers, the Placely mission is to create an "experience tool" for sharing travel logistics, updated plans and stories from the road.
