Frontier Airlines may be best known for its nickel-and-diming fees, but the carrier does often offer fantastic airfares, and today’s deal is no exception. Frontier is currently offering 30% off any domestic flight booked by 11:59pm today, for Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday travel between September 22 and December 16. Discounts are not available on November 24, 25 and 28, for Thanksgiving travel.

To book the discounted flights, head on over to Frontier’s site and enter the promo code 30OFF. The discount applies only to the base fare, so you’ll need to pay full taxes and fees. Speaking of fees, there are plenty to keep in mind. Checked bags will run you $25 and up each way (when purchased on Frontier’s website), and you’ll even pay for carry-ons — $30 per bag when purchased online, or a whopping $60 at the gate! With careful planning and packing, you can ultimately save by booking Frontier, but be sure to keep all of these fees in mind before you book.

Maximize Your Spending

While Frontier may not be a part of a major alliance and these cheap flights won’t help toward any major elite status, you can still earn extra credit card points by using a card that maximizes airfare purchases. You can earn 3x on airfare with the American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card or the Citi ThankYou Premier Card, or 2x with the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. For more suggestions, check out this post on maximizing airfare purchases.
