It is that time of month again – the time that Southwest and JetBlue run a two-day sale. This sale has prices starting at $49 oneway (for JetBlue) and $59 oneway (for Southwest). Like many other sales (and everyday prices) that these two airlines run, these sales are good whether booked with points or cash.
While these prices are not as good as some of the lower priced sales they offer at various times of the year, it is worth taking note of in case your travel would have you flying during these times. Always nice to save a few dollars or points!
The cheapest of these sale fares with Southwest is at the $59 mark or 2,924 points. That is not a bad amount for point travel! And that is not even a “hub” pricing – it is Akron, OH – Reagan National (Washington, DC). Here are details regarding the sale:
