All airline frequent flier programs are free, but that certainly doesn't mean the flights are.

Do you travel FL a lot (multiple times per year)? Because if not, I don't see any plausible reason to enroll.

Usually I fly FL 6 flights per year.
Sometimes I fly DL, WN and B6.

4 credits a year can get you an upgrade on an FL flight, so that's not hard to get at all.

Why would you say that? As long as the miles don't expire, you're not losing anything by enrolling. I have frequent flyer accounts with AA, DL, and US (covering all three alliances) as well as WN and FL. AA set a miles expiration program if you don't fly them once every 18 months or something like that, but that's easy enough to overcome, even when you only fly 5-10 times a year like I do. It took me 4 years but I finally accumulated enough miles from 2003 to 2007 with DL to be able to get a SkySaver to fly up to Ohio last October for my cousin's wedding. Now that I don't live near ATL, the miles accumulate twice as fast too, since I get the two extra legs whenever I fly anywhere too.  Smile It's no longer ATL-XYZ, but ABC-ATL-XYZ.

Somewhat agree. The biggest complaint I have had over the years with FL is that the credits expire in a years time. With FL you cannot accrue points and sit on them like most other airlines (albeit most airlines using a 24-36mos. non-activity clause).

I fly FL somewhere between 20-25 times per year, mostly MDW-MSP, MDW-BOS & now sometimes ATL/BWI-PWM. However, I fly DL 45-60 times in a given year mostly due to the flexibility of SkyMiles and being able to accrue the miles and using them for family escapes. You can't typically use the A+ credits for your entire family, or at least mine with my wife and three children. Typically use the A+ on upgrades because of this.

Thanks All!!
My family would earn more points if I signed up for the A+ Rewards because the parents would have the Credit Cards and the kids would have the A+ Rewards Cards. ( That would be me and my sister, Alise.) My parents use their Credit Cards a lot, so they would be getting a free flight every two months. The A+ Rewards Card would give us flights because of how much we fly, then I would fly more often considering the fact that my family would get the flights from their Credit Cards!! Whoa!! That was a hurricane to say, no wonder why those award shows are so long!!  Smile
