Frontier Mastercard – 40,000 mile bonus after spending $500 in 90 days (enough for 2 free domestic tickets)

frontier airines logoThe Frontier World MasterCard (from Barclays) is now offering their highest credit card bonus offer yet!  I’m not sure yet if this will make my top 5, but it does offer a lot of value for some people.

LINK TO APPLY [expired]

  • 40,000 miles after spending only $500 in the first 90 days (no high spend requirements)  (yes, they advertise an extra 10k for balance transfers but I don’t like pay transfer fees, do you?)

My favorite use for these 40,000 miles:

  • Free domestic tickets including Alaska (20,000 miles round trip per person)
  • Free International tickets to Mexico, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Jamaica (30,000 miles round trip per person – you will only have enough for 1 round trip ticket)
  • Click here to see the award redemption chart

First, the bad parts:  

  • Look at their routemap.  They do fly to lots of airports domestically (a good thing). If you in the New York City area, you will have to connect in Denver for all flights.
  • Also, I don’t love the $69 annual fee.

Next, the good parts:

  • Most carriers charge 25,000 miles for a domestic flight while Frontier only charges 20,000.
  • I’d like to go to Alaska.  From NYC, I have to stop somewhere anyway, so the “bad part” above may not be so bad.
  • I also plan to go skiing in Salt Lake City which usually requires a stop at Denver, so this card could pay for my flights for that trip which usually costs around $300-400 (so 2 tickets would make this worth up to around $800).

Summary

If you can make a good use of the Frontier miles, then this may be worth it, especially if you are near one of their hubs like Denver.  Its also easy to get the bonus with the small spend requirements.
