On December 1 I covered an incredibly generous status match offer from Frontier Airlines. For $49 they’ll match against 15 different airlines and 15 different hotel programs. And they’ll even match up to top tier which basically waives all fees at this fee-based airline and makes tickets cancellable without penalty. This offer runs through December 31.
Two things have changed since the offer launched.
- They’ll no longer match hotel elite status to their 100,000 mile top tier
- They no longer say that those who matched last year will not be able to extend their status.
It was insanely generous (and intentional) to give top tier status to top hotel elites. They’ve dialed that back, though.
What’s also interesting is that they ran this status match promotion in 2020 and originally said those who did not requalify for status were out of luck. They’re not status matching again through this promotion, however the offer FAQ has been updated:
I previously took advantage of the Frontier status match promotion in 2020, can I do it again?
No – however, select customers may be contacted with targetted with an offer.
In fact there even appears to be a site up where you can request a re-match! It’s specifically “For elite members who took part in the 2020 Frontier Status Match.” Since it says it’s targeted I’ll be interested to see data points those of who that take advantage of it can share about the offer you receive.
