Is This a Good Deal?
For folks who like flying Spirit Airlines, or who are looking to visit warmer weather this winter, it could be a good deal.
But remember, Spirit Airlines charges fees for just about everything. And the discount will NOT apply to extra fees you pay for your luggage, seat selection, etc. So even with the discount your flight could end up being more expensive than you expected.
If you book a sale flight, remember there are lots of ways to get cheap or free hotel rooms with points from credit card bonuses and spending.
Remember, you can transfer flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards to different hotel programs.
Note: If you prefer to book paid stays, check out discount sites like Orbitz, Expedia, or TravelPony for deals. But remember you won’t get stay credits or points (and might not have your elite status recognized!).
Airbnb is another terrific way to save money on accommodations, especially for longer stays. Here are some tips on how to negotiate a better Airbnb price, and how to find a safe and comfortable Airbnb.
