Southwest just launched a sale with fares starting at $69 one-way. This sale lasts for quite some time through March 28, 2016, but the earlier you book the better chances you have of finding a cheaper flight.
Per the terms of the sale, the discounted flights are only valid on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays (and travel to/from Florida and Nevada only includes Tuesdays and Wednesdays). Most International travel, however, is valid Mondays through Thursdays, and some cities are actually valid every day. Even if you are looking to travel on a “peak” day, I still suggest checking out to see the price of the flight as you never know!
Already have a Southwest Flight Booked?
Remember, if you already have a Southwest flight booked for this time period, it is worth looking into to see if the price has gone down. You can read this post “If a Southwest Flight Goes Down in Price…” to get the full step-by-step directions on how to get your money/points back:
- Paid Flight: If you paid for your flight you will receive a voucher for the difference in fare price to be used one year from the date the flight was originally purchased (NOT the date the change process took place). This voucher is non-transferable. The voucher will be tied to the confirmation number of the original flight. There is NO fee for this.
- Using Points: If you booked your flight using points, the difference in points will go back into your account immediately. Again, there is NO fee for this. This is why I love booking Southwest flights using points!
And remember, with Southwest there is no penalty for canceling or changing a ticket. So if you have a lot of points currently in your account, you can book speculatively and cancel later for no fee! This post “Changing a or Canceling a Southwest Ticket” goes through all the scenarios depending on your payment method for the flight.
While Southwest sales are not as good as they used to be, you might find a good deal. Report back on what you find!
