Written by Charlie

Another Tuesday and another Southwest sale! This one starts at just $45 each way and is good for travel almost all the way to Christmas! If you want to grab some tickets around the holiday seasons, this would be a good time to do that.

Another Tuesday and another Southwest sale. But the good thing about these sales at this time of year is that the sale range creeps closer and closer to Christmas and New Years time.

While the most popular dates around those holidays will always be blacked out, some people still find exceptional deals outside of the blackout dates to enjoy the great holiday getaways.
