New Spirit Credit Cards Coming Soon?

Bank of America issues a variety of co-branded rewards credit cards with major names in the airline and hospitality industry. One of those names in Spirit Airlines. Bank of America recently sent out a survey concerning two potential credit cards featuring Spirit branding. One card features no annual fee, while the other charges and annual fee of $79. While this news doesn’t mean new credit cards will appear soon, it is none-the-less an intriguing development.

The possible new credit cards are just the latest development for Spirit Airlines. The carrier also announced new services to Cancun earlier this month, with routes running from Austin, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Cleveland.

Potential No Annual Fee Spirit Credit Card

According to the survey, the proposed no annual fee credit card would feature the following perks:

  • 2X points on Spirit purchases
  • 1X points on all other purchases
  • 10,000 bonus points after spending $500
  • 5,000 annual bonus points after spending $10,000 in a year
  • Points are pool-able and never expire
  • 25% in-flight food and drink rebate
  • Zone 2 priority boarding

The card also benefits from no foreign transaction fees.

Potential $79 Annual Fee Spirit Credit Card

The proposal for the $79 annual fee card offers the following perks and points:

  • 3X points on Spirit purchases
  • 2X points on dining and grocery purchases
  • 1X points on all other purchases
  • 40,000 bonus points and a $100 companion voucher after spending $1,000 in the first 90 days
  • Points are pool-able and never expire
  • $100 companion certificate annually after spending $10,000 each year
  • No redemption fees
  • 25% in-flight food and drink rebate
  • Zone 2 priority boarding

The card also benefits from no foreign transaction fees. Plus, a $20,000 annual spend earns Tier 1 loyalty status with Spirit, while a $50,000 annual spend earns Tier 2 loyalty status.

How Will These Changes Affect the Spirit Airlines World Mastercard?

Spirit Airlines currently offers the Spirit Airlines World Mastercard through Bank of America. That card charges an annual fee of $59, which is waived for the first year. That card will likely be replaced by the no annual fee version, as the card mentioned at that price point closely mirrors what the current World Mastercard offers.
