Applying for the Frontier Airlines World MasterCard is simple. The card features an online application that can be filled out in a matter of minutes. There is also an important decision for applications to make. Two types of cards exist - one with and one without an annual fee.
The card version with the annual fee has some additional perks. It will be possible to earn additional bonus points with the card, including after the first purchase. For every dollar spent, a mile will be earned. Double points are earned when the card is used on Frontier Airlines. There are also companion tickets that can be redeemed for fewer miles.
The card version without the annual fee is still a viable credit card. It will be possible to earn bonus points after making the initial purchase. For every two dollars spent, a mile will be earned. One point will also be earned when the card is used on Frontier Airlines. There is also the added benefit of not having to pay an annual fee.
Other benefits are included regardless of whether there is an annual fee or not. This includes a low APR on balance transfers as well as a PIN provided when the card arrives. The PIN can be used at ATM machines to take a cash advance on the card. This provides cardholders with the ability to get cash when it's needed.
The miles can be earned throughout the year. Since the card is MasterCard, it can be accepted all over the world - on all 7 continents. Online and over the phone purchases can be completed easily as well. With so many opportunities to use the card, earning miles is easy. There is no cap to the miles that can be earned. Upon earning enough miles, they can be redeemed on Frontier Airlines as well as any of the partner airlines. It may also be possible to use the miles on other travel opportunities - such as hotel stays and car rentals.
Managing the account is made simple for cardholders. They will have access to their account with a secure username and password. Anywhere where an internet connection is available, it will be possible to check on account details. This includes accessing credit line availability and card balance as well as past transaction details. It's possible to go paperless with statements that can be downloaded to the computer. Cardholders can also make payments online to avoid writing checks and mailing them with the Post Office.
Live customer service representatives are also available to cardholders. There is a toll free number on the back of the card that can be called 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. An automated message provides a glimpse of the account and representatives can be spoken to as well. This makes it easy for cardholders to get information about transactions, ask questions about card features and ask for credit line increases as needed.
Many benefits are provided to cardholders. Regardless of whether the annual fee version of the card is chosen or not, the many benefits are complimentary. This includes the online account tools and customer service as well as fraud protection and the ability to have a lost or stolen card replaced anytime, anywhere. This makes it easier for cardholders to get access to their funds in a safe manner throughout the year.
The online application asks for some basic personal information. This includes mailing address, social security number and full name. It will also ask for employment information. Upon submitting the application, a credit check is conducted and a check is run to ensure the information submitted is not fraudulent in any manner. The decision on the approval is then provided, allowing applicants to know almost instantly.
Cardholders can get their card quickly upon being approved. The card is then activated and it will be possible to experience the benefits of the card immediately.
