Southwest has brought a new sale this week, and we’re on top of it for you. This time, check your email for the subject line “This fall sale is just in time.” The sale is available from Southwest’s website as well. It’s a flash sale, with fares available for 2 more days. It appears that all of SWA’s continental USA cities have deals, and in most cases they have quite a few. This time not only are there no options to the Hawaiian islands, but none for intra-island travel either. There are some international routes available, though. You you’ll need to plan ahead, though: these fares require 21 day advance notice.
Typically, the $49 fares are relatively rare, and offset by some fares actually being lower than the lowest advertised rate. This time that seems to be true, but check dates for your preferred route for prices below the noted rate.
Whenever Southwest hosts a sale, make sure you check any existing flights you have already purchased. Southwest has no change fees, and if the sale price is lower you will receive a credit for the difference usable for future SWA fares. Plus, if you are unsure after you buy one off these flights, remember that any fare marketed in the US is free to cancel within 24 hours. But this sale ends in 2 days, and prices are only good until 11:59 M Pacific Time on October 10, so act fast.
