Now through January 14, 2014 Frontier Airlines is offering up to a 50% bonus with a purchase of EarlyReturns miles on That means you can get miles for 1.79 cents apiece, which can be a  great value if you use them to fly to Alaska or Central America.

You can buy Frontier miles on here and get a 50% bonus until January 14, 2014. Normally Frontier miles cost 2.5 cents each, but when you purchase 25k miles for $671.88 you get a 12.5k mile bonus, making each point cost only 1.79 cents.

I would’t stock up on Frontier miles at this price, but if you buy them at 1.79 cents each you can fly round trip to Alaska for only $363 including taxes and fees. This is a great deal to fly to Alaska during the Summer.

Fly Round Trip to Alaska for Only 20,000 Miles + $5 in Taxes and Fees

It only costs 20,000 Frontier miles to book a round trip award within the US, and this includes Alaska. With United miles it would cost 25,000 miles for a Saver award and 50,000 miles for a Standard award. Either way, you are getting a better deal using Frontier miles flying to Alaska.

Award availability was amazing during June on Frontier; every day of the week had open award seats at the lowest prices (10,000 miles).

If you have a trip planned to Alaska this summer, it may be worth it to you to buy Frontier miles and get the 50% bonus.

If you were to purchase this flight on Frontier, it would cost $476, but when redeemed using Frontier miles with the 50% bonus, it would only cost you $363. This means you could save over $100 by purchasing the miles and booking a trip with them. This won’t be for everyone, but it’s worth saving some money if you’re planning a trip to Alaska.
