How to Avoid Fees on Frontier Airlines With Their Updated Elite Status Program

Folks with elite status on the discount airline Frontier (I guess there are some!) have been getting 2 free checked bags.  But that’s going away very soon!  Instead, Frontier’s frequent flyers will only save money on carry-on bags.

Thanks to Million Mile Secrets reader Howard for letting us know about the changes! 

Starting March 7, 2015, Frontier will discontinue its current elite status levels and introduce 1 level of status only.

And they’re changing how quickly miles expire.  Now you’ll lose your miles if you don’t earn any for 6 months.

Will AutoSlash Save You Money on Car Rentals?

Last year, I wrote about the best ways to save money on car rentals.  At the time, 1 of the best tools to use was AutoSlash.  But they stopped working (properly) after a while.

But now, folks report that AutoSlash is back.  AutoSlash will track your car rental reservations for price drops, and re-book you at the lower rate if your rental becomes cheaper.

They’ll watch reservations made with most major car rental agencies.  And if you booked your car through AutoSlash, they’ll monitor your reservation automatically.
