No surprise here – another Southwest sale is here. But, this is definitely one of the better ones. It is not the great $49 Southwest sale that we see twice each year but it isn’t like the normal ones either. There are a lot of great deals under $50 so check it out!

Better Sale Than It Appears!
Make sure you do not just take the prices on the sale page as the final price! When I was doing some research for this sale, I found many city pairs with prices much lower than the printed price. One instance is Atlanta – Baltimore. The listed price is $85 but many dates are available for $54.
Also, do not take the blackout dates as being firm either! Again, with the above example, the listed price of $85 is available, even on the blackout dates. So, make sure you poke around and see what the true prices are for your desired travel.
Book With Southwest Points For Good Value
Like all other Southwest sales, these cheap prices can also be used to redeem with points. For example, a $42 fare would cost 1,861 points and $5.60 – a decent value of 1.95 cents per point!
