People are obsessed with airline mileage, but it’s really difficult to keep track of the passwords to the mileage programs you are already involved in let alone the ones that might be advantageous to be a part of.
A “Mint for travel but bigger,” Superfly collects user data like miles balance, elite status, travel expenses, analyzing travel patterns and comparing them to already existing mileage programs to provide users with tailor made travel options.
With the objective of consumer savings, Superfly aggregates travel information from all sides of the traveler spectrum and runs an analysis, plotting out user behavior patterns versus the available rewards programs in attempt to save users money.
The service offers a simple interface to track the total value of your rewards, airlines miles over time, and spending patterns with horizontal lines marking achievement level over time valuable in a space where very few airlines provide you with any decipherable tools to manage your obsession.
This service fulfills a real need, as travel is currently a bigger industry than personal finance, with an estimated 17-22 trillion in unused miles deficit.
Superfly intends to monetize by leveraging its intelligent suggestions and charging credit card companies and airline a referral when users follow their suggestions. Founders Jonathan Meiri, Ted Everson and Yaron Shagal estimate material revenue per user at about $29, even through the service is completely free.
