The Free Spirit card is tailored towards those who fly with Spirit often enough to take advantage of the benefits the card provides, and those who want to earn more Free Spirit points on their flights and everyday spending, but don’t want to pay a credit card annual fee.
Cardholders automatically receive Zone 2 priority boarding on all Spirit flights. This will allow you to get to your seat sooner and settle in, as opposed to other travelers who are 3 groups behind in general boarding.
One of the most convenient benefits of the card is the ability to combine your points with up to 8 friends and family members. This allows you to earn free flights faster and is a great option for traveling families that always have multiple passengers on the same booking.
Without the credit card, you would need to qualify for Free Spirit Silver or Gold status in order to access Points Pooling, but Free Spirit cardmembers get it as a benefit of card membership.
Anniversary Bonus Points
When you spend at least $10,000 in purchases within the prior cardmember year, you’ll earn 5,000 bonus points, on top of the points you’ll have earned from the spend. Since we value Free Spirit points at 1.1 cents per point, these 5,000 points are like receiving $55 towards a Spirit flight.
While you probably shouldn’t go out of your way to spend that much on the Free Spirit card just to earn the 5,000 point bonus, it is a nice perk for those who can meet that level of spend.
When paying with your card, you’ll get a 25% rebate on all inflight food and beverage purchases. You might be used to skipping beverage and snack service on Spirit flights in order to save some cash, but now you can treat yourself on your flights and get a discount!
Points Never Expire
One common complaint about the Free Spirit program is that points expire every 12 months. But you don’t need to worry about that with the Free Spirit card, because as long as you hold the card, your Free Spirit points will never expire!
