A new Southwest sale is here from $29 and good for travel all the way through May of 2018!

Southwest sales are as common place as anything else in travel – in fact, maybe even more dependable than some airlines’ ability to get you your luggage promptly! 🙂

Great New Southwest Sale with Fares From $29 For Travel Through May 2018

So, what makes this new Southwest sale “great?” There are a couple of things and the first is that I am seeing many city pairs at lower prices than the normal sales and the other is that this sale is good for travel booked through May of 2018! That is a whole lot of travel to get planning on!

Better Sale Than It Appears!

Like all other sales, make sure you do not just take the prices on the sale page as the final price! There are many dates that are not included in this sale but still available at sale prices.

Also, do not take the blackout dates as being firm either! For example, the sale price of $85 is available (for some city pairs), 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 $39 fare would cost 1,660 points and $5.60 giving the points a great value of 2.31 cents per point! A great deal indeed!
