Frontier Airlines is offering its Elite 20k status to anyone with a U.S.-issued credit card that has travel perks built-in in a unique status match promotion that doesn’t actually require you to have status in the first place.
The Frontier Miles Elite 20k status unlocks a host of benefits, including a free carry-on bag, seat assignment at booking, and priority boarding – all of which would quickly add up with Frontier’s long list of ancillary fees.
To unlock Elite 20k status, however, Frontier requires travelers to either complete a challenge or pay a fee. Here’s how it works:
- Pay a one-time fee of $499 and instantly get Elite 20k status through the end of the year
- Get instant status through September 30 for $199 and extend it through the end of the year by flying 5,000 miles or spending $5,000 on the Frontier Airlines World Mastercard (or any combination thereof).
The first 2,000 people who choose option two will pay a reduced fee of just $80.
You could also combine this status match promotion with Frontier’s GoWild! All-You-Can-Fly summer pass which has been reduced to $499, allowing unlimited travel until September 30.
The pass can be used to access 75 destinations across the United States, including Puerto Rico and St. Thomas in the U.S.V.I., as well as international destinations in Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America.
These two deals, especially when combined, could prove really attractive for anyone hoping to travel quite a bit this summer – especially if you live close to a Frontier hub and haven’t already locked in your travel arrangements.
