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 (on up to $500,000 on these purchases per calendar year). Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.

Earlier today, we wrote about Frontier announcing over a dozen new routes out of Newark (EWR) Airport as Southwest leaves. Now, the airline is back with even more news: deals on those same routes.

We’re seeing deals from Newark to Phoenix (PHX), San Juan (SJU), Miami (MIA) and more starting from just $15 one-way and $30 round-trip. The deals also work in reverse, both one-way and round-trip. Note that some routes begin on Nov. 14 (LAS, MCO, MIA), while others begin Dec. 10 (ATL, PHX, PBI).

The tickets are so low that the fare is mostly comprised of taxes, with the actual airfare costing as little as thirty cents.

Of course, if flying Frontier, there are restrictions you’ll want to be aware of before your trip. While you’ll get a free personal item (think as small as a laptop bag), you’ll pay to bring a carry-on or checked bag and pick your seat. Bags are even more expensive if you wait until you get to the airport. We have a helpful guide to prepare you for your next Frontier flight.

And while Frontier doesn’t participate in any airline alliances, it does have several hotel partners, including Radisson, Wyndham and Marriott. Members who provide their Frontier Miles info at participating hotels will earn award miles for their stay. TPG values Frontier miles at 1.1 cents each.

To search, head directly 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 the airline.
