Southwest Airlines Air Sale

Written by Charlie

There is another Southwest Airlines Air Sale – this time it is the LUV is in the Air Sale (for which holiday, do you think?). The following sale prices are based on non-stop tickets:

  • $49 – 0 – 500 miles
  • $89 – 501 – 1000 miles
  • $119 – 1001 – 1500 miles
  • $149 – 1501 miles and up

If you are in one of the Southwest / Airtran hub airports, this sale could be great for you. If you want to go to one of those cities, this deal is great for you as well. Depending on your desired itinerary, there may be other good deals with this as well. These fares must be booked by 11:59PM local time tomorrow (2/7/2013). This sale is for travel from April 3 – June 8, 2013. For more details and to book flights, go here.

One of the great things about Southwest points is that they are tied to the revenue price of a ticket. In other words, you can get a great deal on using points for a deal like this because of the low price. If you would rather not use cash for a trip, you can transfer Southwest Rapid Reward points from Chase Ultimate Rewards at a 1:1 ratio.

A sample itinerary from ROC – BWI

The above itinerary would have cost $95, instead you can use 4,500 Rapid Reward points to get better than 2 cents per point redemption.

As far as races, this could be very useful for some of the spring/early summer races out there. Check them out!

You won’t get the points in time for this sale, but to have them on hand for next time, consider applying for the Southwest Airlines card to get 50,000 points after spending $2,000 in 3 months. For the above flight, that would let you fly 11 people round-trip to Baltimore!
