PASADENA, Calif., July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Wallaby Financial, the leader in mobile and web-based credit card optimization solutions, and JohnnyJet.com, a leading online destination website for frequent travelers, have announced the launch of Johnny Jet Card Matcher™ at www.johnnyjetcardmatcher.com. Through the partnership fans of JohnnyJet.com will have direct access to expert recommendations on credit cards through Wallaby's proprietary card selection algorithms and database of more than 1,800 US card programs.
The solution will help JohnnyJet.com subscribers save money and earn more rewards by adding credit cards to their wallet that are closely aligned with their lifestyle and purchasing habits. JohnnyJet.com subscribers click through from JohnnyJet.com to a simple set of questions that help define how they use their credit cards. Based on their answers, Johnny Jet Card Matcher will make recommendations on new credit cards and provide an estimate on the savings when compared to the existing cards used by the consumer. The JohnnyJet.com subscriber can then click through to apply for a recommended credit card.
The addition of Johnny Jet Card Matcher builds on JohnnyJet.com's editorial approach in which travel experts share their tips and expertise to help readers become adept in important travel-related issues.
"Our readers are typically credit-card savvy, but even those that are focused on rewards find it difficult to build an ideal mix of credit cards with the ever-changing bonuses and rewards." said John E. DiScala, founder and CEO of JohnnyJet.com. "Johnny Jet Card Matcher gives our subscribers an insider's line to credit cards that are ideally matched to their requirements. It's a logical extension to both our editorial content and the tools we offer to travelers today."
Added Wallaby Founder and CEO Matthew Goldman: "JohnnyJet.com's subscribers are fiercely loyal, and rely on the site for travel advice and tools. The ongoing success of JohnnyJet.com points to the quality and relevance of the site. With the launch of Johnny Jet Card Matcher both loyal and new readers have a great way to ensure that every dollar they spend gets them one step closer to that dream trip."
