I flew Spirit Airlines for the first time a couple of months ago, and wrote a tongue-in-cheek post on my Top 10 Favorite Things About Spirit Airlines.  It was, as expected, a “no frills” experience, but we got from Point A to Point B just fine, and all for 2,500 miles each way (thanks to my dad who has the co-branded credit card which allows you to book for as low as 2,500 miles each way).  My parents I think have a full-fledged affair going on with Spirit Airlines since they can get flights for so few miles each way to places they want to go.  They are simple folks, and fit in the tiny seats okay, so Spirit meets their needs much of the time.  Though let’s see what happens when they are trying to fly Spirit in #HoustonIceStorm2014Part2 this week. 

However, when things run on schedule, Spirit can be a very affordable way to get around, especially when they are handing 20,000 miles away for free to a couple thousand people!  On Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, those in the Dallas area can go to the El Fenix Mexican restaurants and receive a coupon for 20,000 Free Spirit Miles.  The first 2,000 people will receive the certificates for free miles (1,000 each day).  This is being done to celebrate the Mexican restaurant’s 95th anniversary, and why I don’t exactly understand the connection that has with Spirit Airlines, but I don’t really care.  I like free miles and I like Tex-Mex, so perhaps that is a good connection!

I have actually lined up for free Spirit miles before, and the process was very simple and straight-forward.  The recipients of the 20,000 miles certificates must register their certificate within 7 days online and the miles will be deposited in your account within 45 days.  Spirit miles expire after 3 months of no activity, so you need to use these pretty quickly or you lose them.  I ended up using ours for some friends to head to Vegas, so it was worth the effort even though I didn’t get to use them myself.  20,000 miles was enough for a free round trip flight to Vegas, but you do have to find availability at that low level.

  1. based no your experience in the past, how do they go about tracking the vouchers? Would someone be able to pick up multiple vouchers? Could they possibly get back in line or go to the other location to get another?

    Thanks!

    • I got two last time (one from each location) and it wasn’t a problem. I can’t remember the details but you can certainly use the second for someone else’s account.

  2. My advice for spirit is go to the bathroom before you get on the plane. Buy you water or drinks in the airport before you get on the plane…and pay for the big front seats.

    I fly spirit frequently from Detroit Michigan to Florida on the fare sales. I always upgrade to the front. I’ll gladly pay more than my ticket to be comfortable on the flight.

    • Wendy, that would be my exact advice as well…and forget the idea of calling their customer support unless you just want to talk in circles to yourself. 😉

  3. Thank you!

    I was wondering if you had to fly within 90 days or just book your trip within the first 90 days? Basically, could I book a trip this week for flights in October and use those 20,000 points?

  4. I picked up my second voucher today. Do you know if you can deposit all 40,000 points in one spirit account? Or do they gave to be separate accounts?
