But cheap fares like these don’t last long.

You can use tools like Google Flights or ITA Matrix to help find some of these deals.

So Cheap! Fly From Salt Lake City to Honolulu for ~$359 Round-Trip

Departures to Honolulu must occur from Sunday to Wednesday.  And the fare is valid for return flights from Monday to Thursday.

What If You’re Not in These Cities?

You could fly cheaply to 1 of the included cities by using points (like British Airways Avios) to get there.  British Airways Avios are great for short-haul flights because it’s only 4,500 points 1-way for flights less than 649 miles, and 7,500 points for flights up to 1,149 miles.

Or if you have the Southwest Companion Pass, you could fly to these destinations very cheaply.  That’s because with the Companion Pass, your companion flies with you for almost free on both paid and award tickets.

You might also try finding a cheap paid ticket (but do the math 1st to see if it’s worth it!).

Don’t Forget to Use the Right Credit Card!

If you book a fare, be sure to use a card that earns bonus points for travel or airfare:

Note:  Folks who want to book paid stays could check out discount sites like Orbitz, Expedia, or TravelPony for deals.  But remember you won’t get stay credits or points (and might not have your elite status recognized).

And if you’re feeling adventurous or prefer a local, more neighborhood feel, Airbnb is a great way to save money on accommodations, especially for longer stays.
