    Spirit Airline's Free Spirit is the frequent flyer program that frequent flyers love to hate.

    Like the airline itself, Free Spirit is notably customer-unfriendly. There are very few earning partners (Choice hotels, Hertz, and the Free Spirit MasterCard). Miles can only be redeemed for Spirit flights. There are fees to redeem miles within 180 days of departure. And miles expire after just three months of inactivity, unless you hold the program-linked MasterCard and make at least one purchase per month.
    And until recently, you couldn't even book award flights on Spirit's website. That glaring deficiency at least has now been addressed.

    Free Spirit members can now book their award flights online rather than paying $25 for the privilege of ringing Spirit's call center and booking with an agent.
