Frontier is back with another 90% off sale on bookings with promotion code “SAVE90.” We’re seeing deeply discounted fares from around the continental U.S. and San Juan (SJU) starting at just $18 one-way or $37 round-trip.

While most of the deals are return flights, many also work one-way and in reverse. Note that you must book by today (October 14) and travel by December 18. Keep in mind there are numerous blackout dates, including over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Frontier is a budget airline, which means you’ll pay extra for carry-on and checked bags, as well as seat assignments if you don’t want the airline to pick seats for you.

To search, head to Frontier’s website and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with Frontier.
