There’s a new Amex offer out today that’s good for $50 back on $200 or more at Frontier Airlines (targeted, enrollment required). That’s a nice discount for a flight on a low-cost carrier. The terms don’t specifically exclude the Go Wild! Pass, which could potentially be a good use of the credit for those who can deal with all of the many challenges of using a Go Wild pass.

The Deal

  • A new targeted Amex Offer is out that’s good for $50 back when you spend $200 or more in one or more transactions at Frontier Airlines

Key Terms

  • Offer valid for purchases made directly with Frontier Airlines online at US website flyfrontier.com, or through the merchant mobile app.
  • Flights must originate in the US.
  • In-flight purchases, baggage, pets, cancellation and change fees, and Business and group travel are included. Excludes (i) all purchases with third parties, affiliates, partners, (ii) travel insurance, car rentals, hotels, airport transfers, tours, activities, and (iii) gift vouchers. Valid only on purchases made in US dollars.

Quick Thoughts

Obviously the chance to save fifty bucks on a flight is always a welcome sight, and I imagine this deal will be particularly appealing to anyone who was already eyeing a Frontier flight as their cheapest option. Just keep in mind that Frontier is a low-cost carrier, so be prepared to pay separately for your carry-in, seat selection, and checked bags. Still, for those traveling light, this could work out well.

Stephen pointed out to me that the terms don’t exclude the purchase of a Go Wild! Pass. On the one hand, the terms sort of indicate that the offer is meant for flight booking when it says that flights must originate in the US, but I’ve always assumed that Amex’s hangup is on charges being processed in a foreign currency. Nothing in the terms makes me think that a US-dollar charge on the Frontier Airlines website (like for a Go Wild! Pass) will probably trigger the offer. If it turns out that you are able to buy a Go Wild! Pass, I wouldn’t expect the taxes on a flight originating outside the US to qualify toward the $200 spending requirement here (like if you bought the monthly pass, which costs less than $200 to start, and then expected taxes to count toward the $200, I wouldn’t expect the foreign ones would count), but the pass itself should qualify I think.

Keep in mind that the Go Wild! Passes come with a lot of caveats and gotchas, but Carrie and her husband bought one and she wrote a post about How you can maximize the Frontier GoWild! All-You-Can-Fly Pass. For those who have the flexibility to flex a pass, this offer might be particularly appealing.

Again, we don’t know for sure that purchasing a Go Wild! Pass will work and those passes do have a lot of limitations. I imagine most who make use of this offer will be using it for a specific flight — and even in that case it is certainly a decent deal.

Had this saved on my card and it disappeared. Weirdest thing. AMEX chat can’t find any record of it being on my card either.

If I had a black card, I would go out of my way to fly Spirit and Frontier whenever possible just to see the Centurion Lounge staff’s face when I check in, toting only a small personal item of course
