It seems that the new normal over at Southwest is to have a sale every week. If prices are always this low–does that really count as a sale? Whatever the answer might be, their new sale is good from now until May 4th (wait…how is this a 3-day sale?). You can read more about the sale here.

Cheapest flights?

As usual, the lowest fares ($39) are on the Long Beach-Las Vegas route. If you’re traveling on this route, it could be a great opportunity to save some cash. It looks like there are 62 routes under $59, which isn’t a terrible price, especially when you’re getting two bags for free.

Remember, Southwest is generally fee-free, but if you want to be the one of the first to board, you can always opt for Early Bird check-in.

Conclusion

The other thing to do (as Dan has pointed out before) with these Southwest fare sales is to check your existing bookings.  Because of Southwest’s amazing cancellation policy, there is no penalty for changing your flight if the price goes down.
