Earning Almost Free Airline Tickets
I booked our return flight from Vegas for $35. Mind you, we are flying back late on October 31st but we are completely fine with that.
I know writing this, I'm going to start a fight. Some won't believe this works or there is a catch or you don't like Spirit airlines. But I have a plan for all of that!
First, sign up for Spirit's Free Spirit account(click on the member's log-in. It will have a place for new members).
After joining, go to this page on earning free Spirit miles! This is the important part!!! Scroll down and look for the e-Rewards link. E-Rewards is by invitation only but seems to be looking for people to do surveys all the time. E-Rewards is the game changer, people!
E-Rewards pays you in e-Rewards currency. And the pay is fair. You then take the "money" you have earned and use it to buy Spirit points.
Spirit points do expire but as long as you earn miles within three months they won't expire. Don't forget that. Just buy points every three months from E-Rewards and you are golden.
E-Rewards has quite a few rewards and not just from Spirit. You can earn free hotel stays, gift cards and can get points to different airlines too(see I told you, I had a plan). I don't know how the other airline rewards programs work so I didn't write about it. And I don't know how the hotel programs work so again-it's up to you on that one.
If you are willing to be flexible with dates and times you fly, you can fly for almost nothing. I would also suggest getting a Spirit account for you and your spouse. You will earn points faster if each of you is doing surveys.
Den and I have Spirit credit cards. The only draw back is the $70 a year fee. While, I don't like paying fees ever. I'm fine with this because it is helping earn points faster. If you do decide to sign up for a Spirit Master card, give me your email address and I'll give you a few tips on it. And I'll lovingly send you an email and get points for it. Hey, nothing else is a personal link!
The real key here is to sign up for E-Rewards. This will take some time but hey, its so cheap it's almost free!
I sound like an infomercial and I don't even have too much make-up on or fat hair. I just wanted to throw this out there.
