I know that Southwest runs sale fares pretty often, but their current one that I mentioned a few days ago actually seems to be really really good – so I wanted to re-remind you to check out the prices!
The discounted one-way fare prices for travel April 3 through June 8, 2013 are based on mileage and follow this chart:
- 0-500 miles: $49
- 501-1,000 miles: $89
- 1,001-1,500 miles: $119
- 1,500+ miles: $149
Keep in mind that this sale is only for non-stop flights and not all routes still have these fares available. However, even for layover trips, I still was able to find some discounted flights that were well worth it.
Now, if you originally saw this sale and booked your flight, re-check your same flight to see if by change there was a drop in price. I booked a layover flight for my sister during this timeframe the day the sale was announced and the next day the flight dropped by $17. Since I booked with points I was able to get 1,020 points back into my account in no time!
With both airlines, I highly recommend constantly checking the price as you can get a credit difference an unlimited amount of times if the price drops!
