Frontier Airlines wants you to go wild, and extended the opportunity for another day.
The Denver-based low-cost carrier announced its new GoWild! annual flight pass, offering unlimited flights starting May 2.
"If you’re thinking about traveling at least once a month, this makes sense for you," Frontier CEO Barry Biffle told USA TODAY. "If you’re willing to travel once a week, this is a no-brainer."
The airline extended a promotion through Friday under which a limited number of passes are on sale for $599 (increasing in price after that peri. The discount was previously slated to end Thursday, and ordinarily the pass will cost $1,999 per year. It will automatically renew at that rate for all who buy the GoWild! Pass.
Passholders can cancel at any time.
But before you click over to Frontier's website to purchase your own pass, make sure you read the fine print.
How does Frontier's GoWild! Pass work?
Passholders can book flights to any destination in the U.S. including Puerto Rico, one day before departure. Flights to Mexico, Latin America and international destinations in the Caribbean can be booked starting 10 days in advance. However, blackout dates cover most major holidays and long weekends.
"It’s actually more generous than what we give our employees," Biffle said, because employees typically have to fly standby for last-minute flights, whereas passholders can get confirmed seats when they book.

According to the airline, passholders will pay $0.01 in airfare for every flight they purchase, plus applicable taxes and fees. The pass does not cover ancillary charges like seat selection or bag fees.
Seat availability is not guaranteed on any flights not covered by the blackout dates, and travel booked using the pass does not earn frequent flyer miles or status. It does, however, go toward extending the expiration date of existing frequent flyer points.
GoWild passes are not transferrable: only the passholder can travel on tickets booked using the pass.
Who should buy the GoWild! Pass?
"We’ve seen this explosion in travel demand, and it’s driven simply by higher incomes and more flexibility," Biffle said. "This work-from-home phenomenon has created a work-from-anywhere phenomenon."
The pass isn't right for everyone, but it's a great option for people who have the flexibility to travel at short notice, Biffle said. It could be especially helpful for retirees with families spread across the country.
"If you live in a retirement community and you’re really active, and it’s 'hey do I play golf tomorrow or take a trip to Philadelphia?'" Biffle said.
