Southwest is changing things up a bit for this week’s sale. Instead of stretching the calendar as far out as they did last week for the sale prices (it was until the end of their schedule, October 1, last week), they are truly making this a Spring sale with just that timeframe at the sale prices.
Spring Travel Sale from Southwest – Tickets from $44
Southwest Spring Travel Sale Details:
- Purchase from March 11 through March 14, 2019, 11:59 p.m. in the respective time zone of the originating city.
- Continental U.S. travel valid April 1 through June 12, 2019. International travel valid April 23 through May 16, 2019.
- Continental U.S. travel blacked out May 23-24, May 27
Of course Memorial Day weekend is blacked out. 🙂
One nice thing about this sale is that I am seeing many city pairs that have the $49 pricing instead of just Las Vegas and Long Beach. Long Beach and Las Vegas are pretty much always the cheapest (this time at $44) but there are others at the $49 to check out. One I noticed and liked was Chicago – Cincinnati. For any baseball fans, this could be a helpful one to catch your Cubs and or Reds play against each other!
Book With Southwest Points For Good Value
With point prices starting from only 1,300+ for the cheapest city pair, you can get a great value in your points. The cheapest tickets can give you a point value of over cents per point – very good for Southwest! So, while you check out the cash prices, don’t forget to look at point costs as well.
By booking the cheapest tickets, you can get some insane value out the best Southwest card offers! See how you could get over $1,300 in value from a single Southwest card offer!
