The sale is valid for bookings made by tomorrow December 1 for domestic, nonstop travel with no blackout dates. However the sales page has different restrictions on certain sale fares.

To get the best deals, you have to be a Discount Den member, which Frontier charges $50 to join. Here’s my analysis of whether you should join the Frontier Discount Den. The best deal for non-members are $19 fares.

Here is the sale page and restrictions. I see $19, $29, and $39 fares between dozens of cities. Here are some of the deals departing Detroit.

I had no trouble pricing out Denver to Las Vegas for $15/$19.

Fees

Frontier now follows the ultra-low-cost, fee-for-everything model.

Seat selection costs $4+. They’ll assign you a seat at check in for free, but you’ll probably get the worst one.

Only a personal item is free to bring on board. Checked bags cost $25+ and carry ons cost $30+ (and $5 more over the holidays), so I would think of these fares as costing $25-$30 more each way and plan on checking a bag.

Even water costs money. Here’s the snack and drink menu.
