Over the weekend I got my monthly statement for my American Express card that earns Membership Rewards points and it had this notice at the top of the statement:
Effective March 5, 2015 Frontier Airlines will no longer be a point transfer airline in the Membership Rewards program. Any Membership Rewards points transfers for Frontier Airlines must be made by March 4, 2015. These transfers will be considered final, non-refundable, and subject to the EarlyReturns program terms and conditions. To transfer points to Frontier, please visit membershiprewards.com/travel.
This doesn’t impact me as I haven’t flown Frontier in years and only once. Back before the recession they had daily service between Memphis and Denver. Now, the service is no longer daily and not on Saturdays, which is when I’d want to travel them for ski trips, which is disappointing. My one experience with them was flying to San Francisco (via Denver) and I quite liked the leather seats in their regional jets. But that was many years ago and now, of course, I much prefer to fly up front or at least in an Economy Plus-style seat with more legroom.
So if you’d plan to transfer your Membership Rewards points to Frontier, now’s the time to do so!
