If you are a Denver area resident or are thinking of moving to the Denver area anytime in the future, you owe it to yourself to check into getting a Frontier Airlines credit card. I am a Frontier credit card holder, and can say I haven’t paid for an airline ticket for years! I’ve flown myself, my family, and even friends to Orlando, Phoenix, Anchorage, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, New York, and many other cities for five dollars a pop! (I can’t even keep track of how many times our family has flown to see family in Kansas City, or have flown out of town family members here, using our Frontier reward miles.) I’ve even been able to grab a ticket on less than 12 hours notice, and it still only cost me $5 a pop.
The Frontier Card in actual use.
I am the owner of a real estate company in Colorado, and whenever we deal with customers moving from out of state, we encourage them to check into getting a Frontier card as well. The sooner they do, the sooner they start collecting miles toward their next free flight which quickly translates into a free flight for their next house-hunting trip. Depending on how often you use your Frontier credit card and the number of bonus miles you get when you sign up, you could have a free flight within the first month or two of using their card. (Currently, Frontier has a 12,500-mile bonus just for signing up with their platinum card, which is more than 80% of a free flight.)
Why Frontier over everyone else?
The reason I am such a big fan of Frontier over any other mileage program I’ve found is that Frontier only requires 15,000 miles per free flight, and assuming they have availability, there is no limit to the number of free flights you can earn. That includes Alaska flights as well. (I’ve redeemed as many as 15 free flights in a year.) In addition, Frontier flies to 8 locations in Mexico, and those flights are 25,000 plus taxes of about $80. Most other airlines I know of require 25,000 or 30,000 miles for the lower 48 states, and they require far more for Alaska & Hawaii.)
How to start collecting miles:
If you don’t pay off your credit card balance every month, this card might not be for you because it has a pretty steep interest rate for any balances not paid off by the due date. Those interest charges will quickly wipe out any travel benefit in a hurry. However, if you are disciplined about paying off your credit card, Flying with Flip is a great way to go.
