Frontier has an incredible flash same going on right now, with one-way fares as low as $20. And on top of that, you may be able to get triple miles, which is pretty awesome. Check this out…
It’s the last week of the year and I’m looking back at our travels from 2018. While I usually have an idea of where we will be going during the upcoming year, I don’t have as clear of an idea of how we’re going to be getting to those places.
Going back to my year in review post for 2017, the majority of our flights were on Delta with a scattered number of flights on American, JetBlue, Southwest and United. How did 2018 compare to our pattern from 2017? Quite differently, as it turned out.
Earlier this week, I wrote about how I was letting some of my frequent flyer miles expire because I didn’t have any use for them and it wasn’t worthwhile to keep them active. After reading the article, Shawn B. commented on our Facebook page.
Can you donate/transfer em?
I can’t believe I didn’t think of that. I mean, I had even written an entire article about how you can donate miles and points to help out after natural disasters. It’s that charities just don’t need donations during emergencies, they need them all the time. So why not donate my expiring miles to a charity?
I don’t put all the blame on myself because NOWHERE ON FRONTIER’S WEBSITE DOES IT MENTION YOU CAN DONATE YOUR MILES!!!!! Not cool, Frontier. Not cool at all.
UPDATE: I was able to donate my miles instead of letting them expire. Read here to find out how.
I currently have 3,159 miles in an airline’s frequent flyer program that are going to expire in two weeks. Normally I’d be freaking out trying to figure out how to keep my account active and not lose my miles. However, I’ve decided to let the miles expire. Sometimes it’s not worth spending valuable points just to keep low-value points from expiring. Oh well.
Here’s the reason I made this decision…
When you check in for a flight, either by printing a boarding pass on your computer or by using a mobile device, you’re provided with a boarding group. This lets you know when you’ll be getting on the plane. Getting group 3 on one airline might be great but could be terrible for another airline.
Regardless of that number, just know you’re not getting on the plane when the boarding process starts unless you’re a super elite frequent flyer or a disabled passenger in a wheelchair. The passengers with some sort of loyalty with the airline or one of their partners and the passengers who paid for first class will go next. Why not stay seated until your group (or at least the one right before it is called) cause you’re gonna have a long wait just to have your ticket scanned and all you’re going to is stand on the jet bridge for a while before getting on the plane.
Just be patient and don’t be like the people in this video from JetBlue
