Obviously, the Southwest sale has the greatest scope of destinations and prices. But, make sure you give these other sales a glance also if they happen to service airports you are flying into.

My limited experience with Frontier has not left me as a fan, at least for bookings months in advance. But, if you can get a ticket dirt-cheap (can often be found from airports like Chicago or Denver), it could be worth it for you! In the end, the inconvenience was worth it for me. 🙂
