Points International Ltd. operator of The Points Exchange, the only independent loyalty points exchange - at www.points.com - today announced it has signed an exclusive agreement with Frontier Airlines to increase the potential of EarlyReturns, the carrier’s award-winning loyalty program. The terms of the relationship are set for five years, with subsequent one year automatic renewals. Beginning in late August, EarlyReturns will join The Points Exchange as a tradable loyalty currency on Points.com. Both Points and EarlyReturns members can partake in the partnership by exchanging miles and points with over 3600 exchange options, from more than 42 partners listed, on The Points Exchange and earning instant rewards from their preferred loyalty programs. Points will also be granting Frontier’s top-tier, Summit Level, members with a free pointsplus membership. Other Frontier frequent fliers can earn bonus EarlyReturns miles by purchasing a pointsplus membership and extra-bonus EarlyReturns by using their Frontier MasterCard. A pointsplus membership is $19.95 per year and offers unlimited exchanges on Points.com.
ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ Frontier will also begin using the Points Suite of online loyalty management solutions to support the airline’s loyalty program. These components, hosted and maintained by Points International, work seamlessly with Frontier’s website to enhance the capabilities of EarlyReturns, allowing members to buy, share, or transfer Frontier airline miles among friends, family and other members. The components being launched in September include POINTSpurchase, POINTSgift and POINTStransfer. Frontier has also selected the POINTScorporate solution to enable their partner and third-party organizations to purchase its frequent flier miles for distribution as incentives to individual customers, business associates, employees, and charities.Ê
ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ “This agreement establishes the framework for a truly comprehensive partnership between Points International and Frontier Airlines to deliver a unique and consumer-friendly loyalty program to travelers,” said Rob MacLean, CEO of Points International. “Frontier Airlines and its EarlyReturns loyalty program are rapidly growing and we look forward to fueling this momentum with our own loyalty program expertise and resources.”
