Attention shoppers, there are 1,000 free Frontier Miles available on aisle 3! Frontier is giving away 1,000 free miles when you sign-up for a new Frontier frequent flier account. Don’t stop reading just because you don’t fly Frontier, it’s gets even better………..
Frontier participates in points.com – which is an online place you can buy, trade, and exchange points. So, if you don’t want your newly minted free 1,000 Frontier miles then go to points.com and exchange them for Continental Onepass Miles, or American Airlines, or Delta Skymiles, or Priority Club Hotel Points, etc…… You can use the miles to add to the frequent flier accounts you use most, or you can use them to make a deposit in accounts you don’t use frequently to keep the miles in those accounts from expiring due to no activity. Many different programs require some sort of activity every 18 months in order to keep the account active, so this could help extend the life of miles in programs that are in that situation.
Just like with any currency, when you exchange miles from one program to another, there is an exchange rate. Here are a few examples:
1,000 Frontier Miles = 153 Continental Onepass miles
1,000 Frontier Miles = 297 Priority Club Points
1,000 Frontier Miles = 184 US Airways Miles
As you can see, this isn’t exactly a “Points Bonanza”, but hey, it’s free points!
Quick review on getting your free points:
1. Sign up for Frontier Frequent Flier Account
2. Sign up for Points.com Account
3. Exchange Frontier miles for points in the program of your choice.
It really only takes about 5 minutes total. For what it’s worth, I like to use my “extra” email address for signing up for things like this just to help avoid getting too many un-needed emails in my main account.
