No doubt like many of you, I logged into my Spirit frequent flyer account (still never thought I’d say those words) and saw good news:
8,000 miles! If you don’t know how to get the 8,000 miles, checkout this earlier post.
But then it gets complicated. I clicked the “hey Patrick” button, navigated to my account, and then searched, and searched, and searched, in vein to find an option to redeem miles for magazines. Instead, I was met with this screen-
So I panicked a bit. But rest assured, after some research, I managed to find the option to redeem my points for magazines, and I just received a nice little email congratulating me on redeeming miles for The Economist, Time, and ESPN magazine.
So how do you do it? Once you log-in follow this link to take you to the mileage redemption options. There, amongst a few options, you should find Mags for Miles. Click that, pick your selections (up to 8,000 miles) and then checkout. No credit card information is needed, simply an address to mail the magazines, and your Free Spirit account number.
After that, you’ll receive an email like the one below that your order is being processed, pending verification of your Free Spirit account number.
Have you had luck with your miles showing up? Have you submitted your order? What magazines are other people getting!?!
Note: LauraPDX mentioned in the comments she had a hard time accessing the link. Her solution is below: Navigate with a browser other than Chrome, or use an Icognito tab with Chrome. She said when she did incognito more magazine options even became available!
