If the winter blahs have you ready to head out of town in the coming weeks, then check out today’s Frontier Airlines sale where you can save an additional 50% off their base fares with the promo code SAVE50 if you purchase by 11:59 PM Eastern on 1/23/17 (today) for domestic travel from 1/26/17 – 2/14/17.
No Discount Den membership is required for this sale. There are some discounted routes that would really be great for a family long weekend trip out of town.
As an example, your family could take a long weekend trip from somewhere like Houston to Denver to head to the mountains in early February for just $77 per ticket!
While the ticket price is very good, the discount itself isn’t quite as impressive as the 50% headline may indicate at first glance since it is 50% off the base fare, and the base fare is actually pretty low to begin with. The 50% discount does not come off the taxes and fees.
Still, a $77 round trip from Houston to Denver shown above or the $70 round trip from Austin to Las Vegas as shown below are pretty solid, even if Frontier does charge extra for everything from a full sized carry-on bag, to seat assignments, to an on-board soda.
If you have a Frontier Discount Den membership, the savings stack on top of those lower fares, as seen in this $55 Austin – Orlando round trip example.
If you want to take advantage of this sale, remember to enter the discount code SAVE50 when you begin your flight search at Frontier.com and then use their calendar view to spot the cheapest days to travel.
As always, you can have the best of both worlds by capitalizing on low airfares and using fixed value points from your favorite credit card to take advantage of the low airfare prices without spending actual cash on the tickets (just make sure you are meeting the minimum point redemption threshold for your card type).
If you are planning a trip a littler further in advance, there is also a Frontier promo code SAVE25 that will save you 25% on domestic travel on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays from February 21 through May 18, 2017 other than the blackout date of April 17, 2017.
