Transfer Points To Frontier
Calculate the transfer of points to Frontier Airlines Rewards program from their transfer partners and get the list of cards you can use to earn miles.
Frontier Miles can be earned by transferring points earned with several hotel programs directly to your Frontier account. Generally, hotel rewards points will not earn you too many miles, but this can still be useful for topping off your Frontier account in the case that you're a few points shy of a redemption. Read on to get the list of partners that transfers to Frontier and the partner credit cards you can use to earn additional Frontier Miles.
Transfer To Frontier
Frontier Airlines is a direct transfer partner of several loyalty programs. This allows you to earn points with these partners and transfer them directly into your Frontier account. Enter any amount of Frontier Miles in the calculator below to see how many rewards that equals in the partnering programs.
Hertz Car Rental
Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Points transfers to Frontier at a 6:5 ratio which is not too bad. The only drawback is that Hertz does not have it's own rewards credit card, so you'll have to earn your points by renting directly with Hertz. Hertz does has a solid program that includes bonus points for earning elite status along with exclusive benefits, rental upgrades, and even a complimentary trial of the CLEAR program. I recommend taking a look at the Hertz Gold Rewards Plus Program and checking out the benefits they have to offer for being a loyal customer.
Hilton Honors transfers to Frontier Rewards at a ratio of 20 Hilton Honors Points for 3 Frontier Miles. Since Hilton Honors Points earn 10 points per $1 as a base rate, you're looking at 1.5 Frontier Miles per $1 spent at Hilton. At most, Hilton Honors Diamond Members who use the Hilton Aspire Card to pay for their hotel stay, will earn 34 Hilton Honors Points per $1 spent for a total of about 5.1 Frontier Miles per $1 spent.
Marriott Bonvoy Rewards transfers to Frontier Rewards at a ratio of 3 Marriott Bonvoy Points for 1 Frontier Mile. Since Marriott Points are earned at a base rate of 10 points per $1 spent, you're looking at an earning of 3.3 Frontier Miles. Any of the available Marriott Credit Cards can earn you an additional 2 miles, while Marriott Titanium Elite Status and higher will earn you 2.5 more miles. All combined, a Marriott Titanium Elite (or higher) member using a Marriott credit card will earn a total of 23.5 Marriott Bonvoy Points which is equals to 7.8 Frontier Miles. This makes Marriott the best choice (as it is for just about every transfer partner) for transferring points to Frontier.
Radisson Rewards transfer to Frontier Rewards at a rate of 10 Radisson Points for 1 Frontier Mile. Radisson Members earn at a base rate of 20 Radisson Rewards Points per $1 spent which comes out to be 2 Frontier Miles. A max of 45 Radisson Rewards Points per $1 spent can be obtained by Radisson Platinum Members using the Radisson Rewards Premier Visa Signature to pay for their stay. That max is equal to 4.5 Frontier Miles.
Transfer Wyndham Rewards
Wyndham Rewards transfer to Frontier Rewards at a rate of 5 Wyndham Rewards Points for 1 Frontier Mile. Wyndham members earn at a base rate of 10 points per $1 spent earning you 2 Frontier Miles. Unfortunately, earning Wyndham Elite Status does not come with increase bonus points at each tier. You instead earn 3,000 to 6,000 points annually making it not as effective as other programs. You can earn an additional Frontier Mile using the Wyndham (Platinum) Card which earns 5 points per $1 at Wyndham (and LaQuinta) hotels.

Top Off Frontier Account
With none of the major bank programs transferring to Frontier, you're left with a bunch of hotel credit cards. Outside of the Marriott credit cards earning the equivalent of 2 miles per $1 spent at Marriott Hotels, you will not find too much additional value in hotel credit cards when it comes to building miles with Frontier. Your best bet for earning miles on everyday purchases will be to use the Frontier Mastercard. Points earned through Frontier's hotel partners will apply more to those who wants to top off their account due to being a few miles short of a redemption.

Outside of transferring hotel points directly to Frontier, you can earn a good deal of miles using Frontier's 10+ travel partners. You can also use the Frontier Mastercard to earn a whopping 5x miles per $1 spent at Frontier or top off your account by purchasing Frontier Miles from their website.
