Take up to 85% off the base fare on your next Spirit Airlines flight for travel this spring. Fares start at just $61 roundtrip.

How to Book / Travel Availability

Just enter promo code 85PCT when booking on Spirit.com to apply up to an 85% discount to the base fare for roundtrip travel.

  • Travel Period: May 7 -  June 18, 2019.
  • Travel Days of the Week: Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
  • Blackout Dates: May 22 and 28.

The discount will only apply to the base fare and not to taxes nor Spirit's booking fees so don't expect to see that large of a price drop on certain routes.

There is also a long list of excluded markets for this sale. However, I'm finding that, in practice, all routes are being discounted, even if they are listed as excluded.

If you get an error message when searching from the homepage, try the search again from the sale page and it may work. This bug may be corrected at any time.

Baggage

Spirit's Bare Fares only include one small personal item (small backpack, large purse, briefcase, etc.) that will fit underneath your seat. Checked baggage (up to 40 lbs.) starts at $30-$35 each way when purchased during the initial booking. Larger carry-on bag fees start at $35-$40 each way.

Alternate Fares

Spirit sells a Thrills Combo package, which includes one 50 lb. checked bag (10 lbs. extra), one standard carry-on bag, seat selection, priority boarding, no change fees, and double miles. It would cost you more to purchase all of these items separately, but odds are if you’re flying Spirit you don’t need all those extras.

Also, make sure to compare with other airlines that might include more luggage. Even with the so-called "85% off", other airlines may still offer a better deal on certain routes.

Example Booking

As an example, after entering promo code 85PCT on Sprit.com, I found a flight departing Detroit DTW on Wednesday, June 5, returning from Oakland OAK on Tuesday, June 11, for $133 roundtrip.
