Spirit Airlines may not be the fanciest airline, but they are a practical option for consumers looking for a no-frills flight experience. They are adding Houston as one of their new destinations and to celebrate, they will be giving out a total of 60 million Free Spirit miles in Houston this week. 3,000 lucky people over the age of 18 will each get 20,000 miles on a first come first serve basis at the following three locations:
- Sept. 18 5 p.m. at Travel Leaders, 1085 Hercules St., Houston
- Sept. 19 noon at Krisbi Travel, 7457 Harwin Drive, Houston
- Sept. 19 5 p.m. at Fox Travel, 25701 I-45 North, The Woodlands
I wrote about the FreeSpirit program a couple weeks ago when a reader asked whether the Spirit MasterCard was worth it, and 20,000 miles can get you a roundtrip standard award. One of my main gripes with the FreeSpirit program was that you had to call to book awards, but since my post they’ve actually introduced an online award booking engine so you don’t have to call to book awards.
Unfortunately I’m not in Houston this week, but if I was I’d definitely stop by to snag one of these free vouchers. Spirit has a pretty impressive route map so having a free award could save you hundreds of dollars on a future flight. Spirit starts service from Houston to Dallas on September 20, 2012 and non-stop service to Chicago and Las Vegas on October 4, 2012.
