Southwest Airlines launched a deal with fares from $39 one way (and up) as well as points bookings. You have to book by May 4, 2017 for travel in the U.S. from between May 16, 2017 through June 14, 2017 and August 22, 2017 through November 1, 2017. Many of their routes are on sale, so if you have upcoming travel plans in the next few months, be sure to take a look.
Also, if you already have Southwest tickets booked, they’ll credit you back the difference in a voucher if your flights have gone on sale, making this a great deal!
If you’re looking to use points, Chase Ultimate Rewards points transfer to Soutwest at a 1:1 ratio. Make sure to use a card that will earn you bonus points on your airline purchase, like the Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express which earns you 3X points for flights booked with airlines! You can read all about the additional new benefits of this card here, like the new $100 airline fee credit!
