Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is the FRONTIER Miles program?
- FRONTIER Miles is a frequent flyer program (formerly known as EarlyReturns) to reward customers for choosing Frontier for their travel needs. Earning is free and easy and since we have no age restrictions, your whole family can join. Some restrictions may apply.
Q. I was an EarlyReturns member, do I have a FRONTIER Miles account?
- Yes, your EarlyReturns account is now your FRONTIER Miles account and any miles you’ve accumulated are still available with your FRONTIER Miles account so long as you’ve had accrual activity on your account at least once in the last 180 days.
Q. What does the FRONTIER Miles program offer that EarlyReturns did not?
- That’s a great question! Most changes to the program affect high frequency travelers by introducing additional Elite Status tiers and more benefits. But, as a Frontier World Mastercard holder you may unlock additional benefits including waived redemption and redeposit fees and the ability to pool your family’s miles for easy usage. Additionally, Frontier World Mastercard holders get accelerated earnings because everyday card use now counts toward Elite Qualifying Miles which makes Elite Status in reach for even lower frequency travelers.

Q. How are FRONTIER Miles earned?
- You can earn miles three ways:
- Fly, fly, fly Frontier! Each time you fly, you’ll earn one mile for each one air mile flown.
- Use your Frontier World Mastercard. Use it for flight purchases, restaurant purchases, or everyday purchases for extra earning potential. For details on earnings calculations, see your cardholder agreement. If you don’t have a Frontier World Mastercard, you may apply for one.
- Use any of our mileage partners. By providing your FRONTIER Miles number upon booking or purchasing with our partners, you’ll earn miles for those purchases. (The purchaser name must match the name on your frequent flyer account.)
Q. How can I see how many miles I have?
- If you’ve signed up for the FRONTIER Miles program or applied for a Frontier Mastercard, you may sign into your account online at FlyFrontier and select the “Account sign in” link in the upper right-hand corner. Your profile is customizable to your preferences, so feel free to move things around.
Q. How do I receive credit for past travel with Frontier?
- If travel was completed in the last 180 days, you may receive credit by logging into your account online and clicking the “Add Trips” button. You will need your six-digit Frontier confirmation code which you can find on either your paper or mobile boarding passes.
Q. Can I receive miles for travel completed prior to enrolling in the FRONTIER Miles program?
- Yes, so long as travel was completed within 180 days, you may receive credit for travel completed prior to joining.
Q. My FRONTIER Miles are about to expire, what are my options?
- You have several options:
- Accrue: You can choose to accrue miles prior to your miles expiring by flying with Frontier Airlines, making a purchase on your Frontier World Mastercard or using one of our other earn partners.
- Use: You can redeem your miles. If you have 10,000 miles or more, you may have flight options with Frontier Airlines. For other redemption options you may be able to redeem on one of our partners including Points.com, Mags for Miles, Hertz, National or Alamo.
- Donate: You can donate your unused miles to non-profit charitable organizations. The donation is not tax deductible, but you’ll be donating to a great cause and this option is completely no cost to the member. For assistance in donating your miles, please contact us at (801) 401-9000.
Q. My FRONTIER Miles expired, why did I not receive any notifications?
- We do our best to keep members informed. To receive expiration notifications, you’ll need a valid email address on your profile and must be opted in to receive communications. We recommend taking the following steps to ensure delivery of statements and notifications:
- Be sure to include our domain (flyfrontier.com) as a friendly site so these statements and notifications are not marked as spam or junk by your email provider.
- Opt-in for email updates.
- We also recommend logging in regularly to your profile to make sure all trips taken included your frequent flyer number and to review your current expiration date.
Q. Do my FRONTIER Miles ever expire?
- All earned miles are subject to expiration if the account does not have accrual activity at least once every 180 days or 6 months. Accruals consist of miles earned by flying on Frontier, using your Frontier World Mastercard or by providing your FRONTIER Miles number with any of our earning partners. Redemption's or negative transactions do not qualify as accrual activity. To see an all-inclusive list of earning partners, please click here.
