Our review: Generous intro bonus…few fees

This is a fairly straightforward card for people who find Frontier’s routes convenient and tend to fly them for most trips.  Earning power is in line with standard airline miles cards and this is  the only way to earn undiluted Frontier miles with a credit card.  The intro bonus is quite generous, enough for almost two round trip domestic tickets. Frontier offers a domestic round trip for just 20,000 miles, versus the 25,000 standard on most airlines.

Frontier is also helpful with fees. There are no fees for changing or canceling an award ticket 8 days or more before the flight, which offers you peace of mind and flexibility. And within 7 days, the fee is just $50.

However most travelers who don’t fly often with Frontier will find a larger frequent flyer program offers more flexibility and value. In fact a hotel card that allows transfer to airline miles like the Starwood Preferred Guest American Express is probably a better deal for the casual traveler.
