Fares Keep Falling: Book Frontier Airlines Tickets Today for $14.20
Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using The Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to line-up the time away.
Yesterday we shared news of Frontier Airlines' $20+ fares, but if that wasn't in your budget, it's time to window shop again as Frontier just released their "penny fares." These 1 cent base fares price out to as low as $14.20 each way with taxes and fees!
The $15 fares are available on select dates through December, but the cheapest dates to fly can quickly be spotted by using Frontier’s monthly calendar view when you search for flights on its site.

When pricing out flights for your family on Frontier Airlines, remember to factor in the additional fees you may incur, including charges for full-size carry-on bags, checked bags and seat assignments.

If you want to use miles and jump on these fares, you could pay with your Discover it Miles card and then pay yourself back for the $15+ fares with the miles earned on your card in the form of a statement credit since there is no minimum redemption amount for travel charges on that card.
