Y’all know I love a good Frontier Airlines sale, and today there is a really good Frontier Airlines sale with super cheap flights that can be had from just 673 points each way via your Sapphire Reserve if you use those points at a fixed 1.5 cents in value each. That is just 673 points for a flight that goes in the air from one state to another. It’s crazy. As a reminder, most traditional airline programs charge 12,500 miles each way for a domestic saver award, so you can see why I think this is nuts.

With this sale you can get flights for 673 points from your Chase Sapphire Reserve at a rate of 1.5 cents per point, or around $10 to $15 each way if you wanted to pay cash. Frontier says it is a $15 sale, but I have seen the flights price out starting around $10, such as the Austin to New Orleans flight shown below from the Chase Travel site. If you used points from other rewards credit cards that allow their points to be used at a fixed rate for travel, you would likely still be at or below 1,000 points for the flight since it is only $10.10.

The best way to spot the deals from your city is to simply go to Frontier’s site and put in your departure city and see what pops up. Here are some of the $15 or less flights I spotted:

  • Las Vegas – Denver
  • Las Vegas – Salt Lake City
  • Austin – New Orleans
  • Atlanta – Miami
  • Denver – Dallas
  • Denver – Kansas City

The cheapest travel dates vary some by route, but are largely in October and November as far as I can tell. Their flexible date calendar makes it very simple to spot the cheapest days to fly.

Yes, you pay extra for pretty much everything on Frontier, but at just $10 – $15 or 673 points each way, you are still in for a very good deal.
