Frontier Airlines is offering everyone the opportunity to earn their Elite 20K status for the rest of 2018. You just need to fly two roundtrips with them by October 15th and the status is yours. Make sure to sign up for the promotion here. I personally wouldn’t go out of my way to earn this status, but if you happen to by flying Frontier anyways, you might as well earn this status for a few months.
Frontier Elite 20K status will get you: free carry on bags, free seat assignments, priority boarding, waived redemption fees, and the possibility for stretch seating if available during check-in. This status typically takes earning 20,000 status qualifying miles or flying 25 segments, so only having to take 2 roundtrips is significantly less.
Some things to know:
- It seems like previously booked flights will not count
- You must register for the promotion at least 48 hours prior to your first qualifying flight
- You must include your Frontier Miles number at the time of booking
- Award tickets or free tickets will not qualify – it must be a paid ticket
I’m actually kind of excited to sign up for this. I know you can match to Alaska with this and I think southwest as well. As somebody who doesn’t fly enough paid flights to make status this is the perfect way to get my foot in the door.
