Frontier Airlines matching status from other airlines, hotels

I know many TUGGERs hate Frontier, but they are a presence at our local airport, with many non-stops to Florida. I have taken them a couple of times before with no problem, but hate their nickel-and-diming.
I got an email yesterday from The Points Guy that advised me that Frontier is now matching status from 45 other airlines and hotels.
I now have a Southwest Companion pass, earned through 12/31/23 from their credit card offer last year. I will not be eligible for the pass after 12/31, but my husband did take advantage of the free companion flight 4 times this year.
Frontier is matching the Companion Pass status to their 100K elite status, for a fee of $149.
I had had Southwest flights booked for Jan. 13-20th to Orlando, at a cost of $319 r/t each.
I just booked on Frontier, the Stretch Seats in the 2nd row, for $44 r/t each, or $175 for all 4 of us.
The status is good through 12/31/24.
I will be looking to use it as often as I can, if I can fly to FL cheaper than taking the train into NY city!

I did this match a couple years back and LOVED it. It was crazy, I only had less than a week left with my SW CP (end of the year) and they still matched for a small fee.

All the perks for just the base price of the ticket. We had many quick trips to Orlando for $23 a person! And prime time holiday vacation flights around $75 a person.
Never did a flight cancel. There were a couple small delays, but nothing more than an hour. The seats (even the strech) are not that comfortable, but fine for short hauls.

Unfortunately, Frontier pulled out of our home airport earlier this year. If they didn't I would be happy to spend $149 for this again.
