Hello, Tuesday! “Tuesday” in the travel realm of the US is synonymous with “Southwest sale day” but I am certainly not arguing! I cannot tell you the amount of times I found out I needed to book something and that a Southwest sale just ended. With very frequent sales, or price drops, it means that I can just wait until the next week to grab what I need! Or, if I already booked travel, I can just wait to see if I can change it for free and get points or a credit back!
