Yapta Announces "Tag and Fly Sweepstakes"



Tag a flight using Yapta and be eligible to win a trip for two to Hawaii courtesy of American Airlines



SEATTLE - February 11, 2008 - Yapta, Inc. (www.yapta.com), an online travel shopping service that tracks airline ticket pricing for leisure and business travelers, today announced a sweepstakes giveaway where one Grand Prize winner will receive a pair of round-trip tickets to Hawaii, compliments of American Airlines. One First Prize winner will also receive a $500 Marriott gift certificate that can be used at 2,700 Marriott locations worldwide.

The Yapta promotion, called the "Tag and Fly Sweepstakes", will provide each participant with up to 25 chances to win based on the number of flights "tagged" (or bookmarked) using Yapta between February 11th and March 11th 2008. Each flight tagged during the promotional period (up to a limit of 25 per person) will represent a single, unique entry into the sweepstakes.

Online travel planners use Yapta's browser add-on to track airfares by tagging (or bookmarking) the exact flight itineraries that they want while shopping on airline websites. Once a trip is tagged, all key flight information - including price, airline and travel dates - is automatically stored on the traveler's "My Trips" page at Yapta.com and users are subsequently notified via email when prices drop. Yapta also tracks the price of flights that have already been purchased and alerts travelers when they're eligible for a travel voucher or refund from their airline.

"The Tag and Fly Sweepstakes is simply an opportunity for travelers to have some fun with their online travel shopping," said Tom Romary, CEO of Yapta. "While most everyone would appreciate the chance to win an American Airlines flight to Hawaii, we also think they'll appreciate seeing how Yapta can help them get the most value out of their online travel planning - regardless of the destination."

Official sweepstakes rules, instructions and online entry can be obtained at www.yapta.com/tagandfly/. The sweepstakes ends on Tuesday, March 11, 2008 at 11:59 PM ET. Winners will be selected at random on March 31, 2008.

About Yapta, Inc.
Yapta, Inc. was founded in January 2006 with the mission to assure consumers that they get the most value out of their trip planning, and pay the lowest possible price for airline tickets. Yapta's online service takes advantage of airfare price volatility by continually monitoring airline ticket prices and alerting consumers when the price on "tagged" flights decreases. Bringing to light pro-consumer "guaranteed airfare rules" offered by many airlines, the service helps air travelers obtain travel vouchers -- and in some cases, cash refunds -- when the price decreases on tickets that have already been purchased.
