You can upgrade your elite level status — and enjoy such benefits as complimentary seat selections and carry-on baggage — through Friday, December 31, 2021 with Frontier Airlines and its FRONTIER Miles frequent flier loyalty program if you currently hold elite status with any airline which is based in the United States…

…but this offer is only available for two weeks through Tuesday, December 1, 2020. You must have your current elite level status with the frequent flier loyalty program of any airline which is based in the United States verified by the elite status match program of Frontier Airlines. Elite status verification costs $49.00; and you will also need to sign up for the FRONTIER Miles frequent flier loyalty program, which is free to join as a member.

The three elite status tiers — and the benefits offered with them — from FRONTIER Miles are as follows:

  • Elite 20k — Complimentary carry-on baggage allowance and complimentary seat assignments
  • Elite 50k — Upgraded seating for the whole family
  • Elite 100k Both elite level status and The WORKS for the entire family, which includes:
    • Access to the best seats aboard the airplane
    • Checked bag
    • Carry-on bag
    • Fares are fully refundable
    • No change fees

Family Pooling Benefit

All elite members enjoy the benefit of access to Family Pooling, which is a way for a group of up to eight people to share their FRONTIER Miles — and because all families are not the same, you define who are members of your family in this program. No minimum limits or hidden fees are associated with the Family Pooling benefit, which is unique to Frontier Airlines.

You can access the benefits of family pooling in two ways — either by:

  • Earning elite status
  • Becoming a FRONTIER Airlines World Mastercard card holder

Frontier Airlines World Mastercard

Frontier is the first airline in the United States with which card members receive one Qualifying Mile towards elite status for every United States dollar spent.

The card program offers even more ways to earn miles with the dynamic 5-3-1 earning structure, as for every dollar spent, card members earn:

  • Five times the miles on purchases at flyfrontier.com
  • Three times the miles on restaurant purchases
  • One mile on all other purchases.

New card members earn 40,000 bonus miles after spending $500.00 on purchases within the first 90 days and paying the $79.00 annual fee — and cardholders who spend at least $2,500.00 on the card in one year receive a voucher worth $100.00 to be used with Frontier Airlines on each anniversary of their card membership.

You can sign up for the Frontier Airlines World Mastercard here — and no, this is not an affiliate link.

Select Terms and Conditions

To be eligible for this elite status match, you must join the FRONTIER Miles frequent flier loyalty program offering the match and meet the eligibility criteria, pay any applicable fees, and submit details of current elite level status held with the frequent flier loyalty program of another airline.

Where Elite Status is held with more than one Eligible Airline, the Status that delivers the highest tier in the Status Match Promotion will be used.

LDC and the Airline reserve the right to reject or revoke the Status Match if fraud is found or for any other reason

The status match offer is a one-time only offer.

The option to purchase a higher tier may be offered to eligible frequent flier.

Eligible frequent fliers may include existing members of the FRONTIER Miles frequent flier loyalty program.

Status rules and limitations remain at the sole discretion of the FRONTIER Miles frequent flier loyalty program.

Only one elite status match per individual is allowed.

This offer is subject to change without notice.

A status match is only offered to members who have achieved elite status through actual flight miles or segments in another program or have purchased a buy-up in elite status tier.

Other terms and conditions — including those of the FRONTIER Miles frequent flier loyalty program and those of this elite status match upgrade offer — apply.

Summary

Unfortunately, the terms and conditions of this elite status match offer seem to exclude anyone who has earned lifetime elite status in the frequent flier loyalty program of another airline.

For some people, the fee of $49.00 to have elite status verified could be a deterrent to this promotion, as the frequent flier loyalty programs of airlines typically do not charge a fee to have elite status matched from other airlines — but Frontier Airlines is an ultra-low-cost airline; and if you believe that you will be traveling as a passenger of Frontier Airlines several times or on a regular basis, the money you could potentially save combined with an upgraded flying experience for you or for both you and members of your family traveling together could easily offset the cost of that fee.
