Frontier Status 1

A second offer is available for US credit card holders. Eligible credit card holders can receive Elite 20K status without being required to fly or hold status with any another airline. This can also be bundled with the GoWild! All-You-Can-Fly Fall & Winter Pass. Once an eligible card has been verified on, Elite 20K status can be purchased for $499 or bundled with the GoWild! All-You-Can-Fly Fall & Winter Pass for $649. The GoWild Fall & Winter Pass is valid until February 29, 2024, and the Elite 20K status is valid until the end of 2024.

Anthony’s Take: If you can take advantage of the benefits of Frontier status coupled with an all-you-can-fly pass, there is a great opportunity here to rack up tons of trips with little cost out of pocket since elite status eliminates the need to pay for things like seats, bags, etc.
