Earn 1,500 Bonus Miles With The Bare Fare Questionnaire
I have yet to fly on Spirit and when I do, I think all the information on Spirit that I can muster will be mandatory prior to booking. Let me just say, from everyone that I have talked to; Spirit is not for the faint at heart. Their ‘bare fares’ are true to the form and you need to pay close attention to everything you do with the airline to come out on the other side with you wallet intact.
The key item to remember is that your fare only covers your a$$ + gas. That’s it. The chairs do not recline, there are no refreshments, no checked bag, no wi-fi, nothing. Your carry-on has to fit the exact dimensions or you will get charged. From what I hear, you should include the wheels in the measurement or be pleasantly surprised by an increased fee for your bag at the airport. Oh yes, did I forget to mention that? You can pay a nominal fee for your bag at booking or pay through the nose at the gate.
The Bare Fare Questionnaire…What Is It?
You’ve probably heard it a dozen times by now: Spirit does things a bit differently. And before you fly, there are some things you need to know (so you can save the most money when you go). That’s why we’ve created the Bare Fare Questionnaire. It’s our way of testing your Spirit knowledge. The more questions you get right, the more clothes your tutor takes off (that’s what we call “motivation”). If you pass, you get miles. If you don’t… well…You can always take the test again. Are you ready?
There are three quizzes, each with five questions. It is a video quiz and it is timed, you have about 15 seconds per question to answer it. No pressure. If you ready the ‘bare fare’ 101 and do a quick scrub of the website you will find all you need to know about Spirit. I have to give it to them, they are pretty straightforward about that fact that they are a cheap flight so keep your expectations in check.
After each quiz you will get a certificate number for 500 Spirit miles. You can deposit that into your Spirit Airlines account and it will post almost instantly.
Final Note To Remember
Unlike most programs where the miles can sit in our account for a year or more, Spirit miles expire in 90 days so you must use them or lose them. They are not like normal miles earned where you can keep your miles active with some activity on the account. These do in fact expire in 90 days. That’s the gimmick. If you already have a decent balance you can sign up for their H8TE Thousand Miles Giveaway which gives you 8,000 Spirit miles. Add that to your existing balance and the 1,5000 from the Bare Fare Questionnaire and you might have enough for a one-way trip.
