Earlier this month, Frontier celebrated turning 28 years old by allowing flyers to book round-trip flights up to 75% off. If you missed out on the fun, don't despair, because the airline is back with an end-of-the-summer sale, with the chance to book half-price, round-trip flights through the fall.

Book by the end of today, for travel by Nov. 2, 2022, to save up to 50% on domestic, round-trip flights by using the code JAWS. Round-trip flights for select routes are currently available starting at $38.

Sample routes

As mentioned, this deal is for a variety of routes within the Frontier network. Based on a test search for this story, the following routes are currently on sale:

  • Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) to San Francisco International Airport (SFO), starting at $38 round trip.
  • Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) to LAS, starting at $76 round trip.
  • LaGuardia Airport (LGA) to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), starting at $84 round trip.
  • LGA to Orlando International Airport (MCO), starting at $87 round trip.
  • SFO to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), starting at $102 round trip.

For example, you can book this nonstop flight from Chicago to Denver in mid-August for just less than $124 round trip.

Although this flight is not quite half-off the non-sale price, you would still save nearly $50 by using the promo code since the price for this same flight without the promo code is $171.

In searching for this deal, remember that the discount code is only valid for travel on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday, starting Aug. 16 through Nov. 2, 2022. The code cannot be used for travel on Aug. 31; Sept. 3, 6, 7; or Oct. 8, 15, 18, 19, and certain routes are excluded.

The sale advertises flights that are 50% off, but I did not find any routes that were half-price. Still, you can find discounted routes as illustrated.

Lastly, remember that the reflected fare prices are for only the fare itself, so factor in an extra $60 to $65 to bring a full-sized carry-on bag and an additional $55 to $60 to add a checked bag to your reservation at the time of booking. Frontier charges extra for anything more than a personal item that can fit under the seat in front of you. Read more about Frontier baggage fees here.

Maximize your purchase

If you book this deal, don’t forget to use a credit card that earns bonus points on airfare purchases, such as The Platinum Card® from American Express (5 points per dollar on airfare booked directly with the airline or through American Express Travel), on up to $500,000 on these purchases per calendar year or the Citi Prestige® Card, which also gives you 5 points per dollar on airfare. Or try the Citi Premier® Card or Chase Sapphire Reserve, (both 3 points per dollar on airfare). Use the American Express® Gold Card (3 points per dollar on airfare when booked directly with the airline or through Amex Travel) or the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card (2 points per dollar on travel). For more ways to get the most out of your airfare purchases, see here.

Bottom line

This is a timely sale ending tonight, so be sure to book ASAP to save even more money on already low-priced Frontier routes. Be sure to use promo code JAWS to take advantage of this deal.
