3-Day Southwest Sale – Save Money and Points on New and Existing Flights!

Southwest is currently having  3-day sale (although it also states flights need to be booked by May 4, 2017, so I am not sure when it really ends!) for flights flown between May 16-June 14 and August 22-November 1, 2017. With fare sales I always double check flights that I’ve already booked to see if the price…
