By Jim Donovan:  Spirit Airlines is celebrating its new service in Philadelphia by giving away 25 million frequent flyer bonus miles.  The give-away will happen this Thursday morning, May 16, 2013 at the IndependenceVisitorCenter.  Spirit recently started service from Philadelphia to Dallas/Fort Worth, Myrtle Beach and Las Vegas.

1,000 people (18 years and older) will receive 25,000 miles* each – that’s enough for a standard roundtrip award ticket (with taxes and fees from only $5 per award ticket).  Spirit is giving away the 1,000 certificates on a first-come first-serve basis, while supplies last.

*Recipients of the 25,000 FREE SPIRIT™ frequent flyer bonus miles certificates must register their certificate within 7 days of receipt. Miles will be deposited within 45 days of registration.  Certificates are good for one time use, and only one 25,000-mile certificate can be credited to a FREE SPIRIT account. FREE SPIRIT program terms and conditions apply – complete details available at  Certificates do not have a cash value and may not be duplicated or sold. Spirit reserves the right to modify or cancel this promotion at any time. Open to legal residents of the 50 U.S. states (including D.C.), 18 years old or older. For complete details, visit
