Frontier Airlines is giving 1,000 free points for signing up for their free frequent flyer program. Frontier is based in Denver and is an American Express Membership Rewards transfer partner, but if you never have any intention of flying them, you should still get the points, because they can be converted to other programs (see list below).

All you need to do is sign up for an account here.
Then get a points.com account here (if you don’t already have one).
Then add your Frontier account to your points.com profile by just clicking Add programs -> Airlines. You may have to refresh your home screen after you’ve clicked on Frontier and it will load in your main screen.

Then click “Register program” and add your first and last name and Frontier number (which will be emailed to you after you register).
You’ll then see the 1,000 points listed. Click “Exchange.”
Then select “Move out of a program” and select Frontier and 1,000 miles.
Scroll to the bottom and you’ll see “Exchange – swap between your own programs.”

In order to exchange, you will have had to add whatever program you want to swap into.

I chose American and I got 153 miles. Not the best deal ever, but it only took me about 10 minutes. At that rate, I’d accrue a business class award in only 108 hours! Also, this is an easy way to extend the expiration of any accounts, for example AA miles expire after 18 months of no activity- this would reset that clock.

My big payday

But hey, every mile counts!
