The event got underway Wednesday in Dallas, Texas and stops are planned in 25 cities across the country. More than 15,000 people will receive 20,000 "Free Spirit" frequent flyer miles which can be redeemed for a free roundtrip award ticket (taxes of at least $5 per ticket apply). Anywhere from 250 to 1,000 certificates will be distributed at each venue.

"We're looking forward to giving away 15,000 award tickets as we say hello and thank our loyal customers, as well as reach out to potential new customers in cities we serve across the United States," says Michael Pewther, Spirit's senior director of sales in a release.

Here's the fine print. Recipients of the bonus certificates have to register their claim on the airline's website within seven days, and miles will be deposited within 45 days of registration. Travel must then be booked within 30 days of the date the miles are posted into the certificate holder's account.
