We’ve seen a lot of Amex Offers to save on airfare recently. Now, you’ll want to check your account for another targeted deal — this time on Frontier Airlines.

Let’s dive into the details of this Amex Offer!

New Amex Offer: Spend $200+, Get $40 Back on Frontier Airlines

Frontier Airlines is known for offering ultra-cheap flights, but the base fare only tells a part of the story. Everything else costs extra if you want to pick your seat, bring a carry-on bag, or even purchase a soft drink or snack onboard.

That’s why this Amex Offer can be handy for saving on those pesky fees if you’re considering booking a Frontier flight. You’ll save $40 when you spend at least $200 in 1 (or more) transactions directly with Frontier Airlines by December 31, 2023. In addition to flights, “inflight purchases, baggage, pets, cancellation and change fees, and business and group travel” all count as eligible transactions toward this Amex Offer.

However, another major caveat you should know is that flights must originate in the U.S. and be purchased in USD. But since Frontier flies to 100+ domestic destinations, this Amex Offer should be easy to use for most travelers.

How To Maximize This Amex Offer

If you have multiple Amex cards, be sure to enroll in this Amex Offer on the card that earns the most on airfare. For example, I added this targeted Amex Offer to The Platinum Card® from American Express, which is easily one of the best travel cards out there. The Amex Platinum card provides 5x points on flights booked directly with airlines or through (up to $500,000 per year).

Since we value Amex points at 2.2 cents apiece, that’s like getting an 11% return with the Amex Platinum card. Not to mention, you can take home 1,000 Amex Membership Rewards points and save $40 off a $200 Frontier flight with this Amex Offer.

Hot Tip:

Have status on another airline, hotel, or cruise? Frontier Airlines currently offers a status match up to its top-tier 100K elite status level, which gives you free carry-on bags, seat assignments, and more.

Final Thoughts

What’s not to love about saving even more on already cheap airfare? With this Amex Offer, you can book an inexpensive Frontier flight and feel good about piling on the seat assignment or carry-on bag fees as you work toward meeting that $200 minimum spending requirement.
