A few days ago Southwest launched a 72-hour sale which I described in detail here. I wanted to remind you all that this sale ends tonight at 11:59 pm for the respective time zone of the originating city.

This is one of the better Southwest sales you’ll find so if you have any upcoming travel you still need to make reservations for make sure to take a look. The sale price depends on the flight mileage: $49 for 0-500 miles, $99 for 501-1,250 miles, $129 for 1,251-1,750 miles, and $149 for $1,751+ miles – note that these are starting at prices and they could actually be higher. Also, now that this is day 3 of the sale, for some markets the discounted prices could be sold out.

 This sale is for travel August 28 through December 18 for flights booked by this Thursday (June 13). Unfortunately Friday and Sunday flights are excluded from the sale, although it seems like those flights still have been discounted as well, so its worth taking a look. There are also blackout dates which include: Sept. 2 and Nov. 26 through Dec. 3. Select markets are also excluded: Dayton, OH; Washington (Reagan National), DC; New York (Newark); Philadelphia, PA; Washington (Dulles), DC; New York (LaGuardia); West Palm Beach, FL; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Fort Myers, FL; and Seattle, WA.
Remember, if you already have a Southwest flight already booked for this time period, it is worth looking into to see if the price has gone down:
  • For paid flights, you will receive a voucher for the difference to be used one year from the date the flight was purchased. This voucher is non-transferable.
  • For flights booked with points, the difference in points will go back into your account. You can re-book your original flight online to get this voucher/point difference credited – no phone call is needed.
While Southwest sales are not as good as they used to be, you might find a good deal. You can check out the terms and book here.
