How can I earn miles in the FREE SPIRIT frequent flier program?

posted this on April 23, 2012 04:00 AM

As a FREE SPIRIT member, you can earn miles every time you fly with us or by taking advantage of our many partner bonus and earnings opportunities.

You can also buy miles to add to your account or gift miles to someone else.


Earning with us


To earn miles when you fly, just be sure that your FREE SPIRIT number is included with your reservation.  As long as you are booking online, your FREE SPIRIT number will automatically be populated with your contact information.  If you’re bringing other passengers along on your trip, you can also easily add their FREE SPIRIT numbers to the booking.  Encourage your travelling friends and family to sign up if they don’t already have a FREE SPIRIT account so everyone receives credit for their miles. 


Whenever you purchase your ticket through our Reservations Department, the agent will gladly add your FREE SPIRIT number to your itinerary.  Even if you’ve booked a Spirit flight through another ticketing source, you can always access your reservation at and add your FREE SPIRIT number.  Forget to add your FREE SPIRIT number when booking? – No problem!  As a courtesy, you can add your FREE SPIRIT number to a reservation up to 30 days after travel to receive your mileage credit.  Just go into your profile at and request mileage credit within 30 days post-travel. 


(Remember, miles can only be awarded to customers actually traveling on the flight.  Also, FREE SPIRIT members cannot earn miles for other travelers on their reservation.)


The best way to maximize your mileage earnings potential and make sure that you earn 100% of your miles flown is to have our SPIRIT™ MasterCard® credit card.  As long as you use it at least one time each month, your miles will never expire!
