Most legacy carriers have moved to revenue-based mileage-earning programs, significantly devaluing each program in the process. In a way, Spirit Airlines has followed suit for the month of August — although this promotion works a bit differently than the rest of the carriers. Believe it or not, Spirit will reward flyers who book a lower base fare with more bonus miles — the cheaper your base fare, the more bonus miles you’ll earn.

For example, members of Spirit’s Free Spirit frequent-flyer program who book a base fare of $75 or less will receive 1,000 miles, and members of the $9 Fare Club will receive 2,500, on top of the miles you’d already earn for each flight. As you spend more on the base fare, you’ll earn fewer bonus miles. If you want to take advantage of this promotion, be sure to sign up for the Free Spirit frequent flyer program before booking your flights, and keep in mind that Spirit miles expire after just three months of inactivity.
