Yes, the whole Spirit Mastercard free flight come on is a SCAM. I finally decided to get a card and with all the other flight I've taken I just tried to redeem 27,500 miles to visit my daughter in Florida. Traveling Oct 30 to Nov 8th from LAS to FLL. Not only will it cost me a $75 fee to redeem, plus baggage and seats, etc but it will somehow cost 35,000 miles for this one trip! That three free flights promise is just a line. It is a rip off. You are better off avoiding Spirit Airlines. And yes the representative I spoke to was clearly from India.
