Mercury Financial and Spirit Airlines announced the launch of Free Spirit Points Plus Mastercard, joining the Free Spirit Points Mastercard, which launched in February. Free Spirit Points Plus cardmembers will have the opportunity to earn points and status with Spirit Airlines.


The Free Spirit Points Plus card builds on the foundation of the Free Spirit Points Mastercard. Perks and benefits of the new card include:

  • Three times Free Spirit points on all eligible Spirit purchases, including flights
  • Two times Free Spirit points on dining and grocery purchases
  • One time Free Spirit points on all other purchases
  • 25 percent rebate on in-flight food and beverage purchases
  • Shortcut Boarding/Zone 2 early boarding
  • Point pooling for individuals and up to eight additional Free Spirit members


“With an increase in travel over the last few months, we are excited to have credit card product options to offer Free Spirit members an opportunity to earn points, enjoy greater benefits and earn status with our trusted partner, Spirit Airlines,” said Jim Peterson, CEO, Mercury Financial. “Our ongoing partnership with Spirit strengthens our purpose-driven commitment to serving near-prime customers and expands the benefits cardholders care about most.”


New cardmembers earn 20,000 Free Spirit bonus points and a $100 Companion Flight Voucher when they meet purchase and payment requirements. The $79 annual fee is waived the first year. The annual companion voucher will be earned each year when the cardmember spends $5,000 before their anniversary date. Members can achieve Free Spirit Silver and Gold Status as credit card holders by earning one status qualifying point for every $10 spent in purchases. Points do not expire and there no cap.


“We’re proud to be the first co-brand partnership to offer a complementary card product, grow our partnership with Mercury Financial and strengthen our shared commitments to all of our members,” said Sid Krishna, director of loyalty and co-Brand, Spirit Airlines. “Free Spirit Points Plus Mastercard is the ticket to an enhanced travel experience for the holidays and beyond.”
