In the past week, we’ve seen an uptick of travel companies seemingly ready to try and stimulate travel with various deals and offers. And while the number of travelers flying in the U.S. has been on the rise for months, fall is just around the corner. With it typically comes a drop-off in leisure travel, even during normal times.
So now, it’s Spirit Airlines that is taking a swing at the plate with a promotion that will award five times the normal number of Spirit miles for those who fly Spirit. This promotion requires eligible tickets to be purchased from now until Aug. 18 and is valid for travel dates from Aug. 18 to Feb. 9, 2021. Spirit has told TPG that no registration is required for this deal, just Free Spirit membership and your loyalty number attached to the reservation.
