Most routes are more expensive, but there are plenty of good deals out there. For example, a one-way flight from Austin to New Orleans costs just $76 (or 4,138 Southwest points).
Here’s more about this deal!
Thanksgiving Travel for Less With This Southwest Sale
Link: Southwest Companion Pass
With Southwest’s latest sale, you can book cheap domestic flights over Thanksgiving week! But valid dates vary depending on the route.
For example, I found one-way flights from Milwaukee to Nashville for $49 (or 2,330 points), to Atlanta for $94 (or 5,344 points), and to New York for $101 (or 5,813 points).
Tickets must be purchased by September 24, 2017, by 11:59 pm at the origin city. Here’s what you need to know:
- Continental US travel is valid between November 17, 2017 and November 28, 2017
- Blackout dates are November 21 to 22, 2017, and November 25 to 27, 2017
- Domestic travel NOT valid on Fridays and Sundays
- Tickets are non-refundable
There may also be sales outside of the advertised dates. So it’s always worth a look to see if the flight you want is on sale.
And if you’ve already booked your Southwest flights, check this sale to see if your flights are available for cheaper. Because if they are, you can cancel your flight for free and re-book it with the lower price.

Folks like Southwest sales because when the cash price of a ticket goes down, award ticket prices go down. That’s because Southwest award prices are based on the cash price.
Million Mile Secrets readers also love Southwest because every passenger gets 2 free checked bags. That can save lots of money!
Plus, if you have the Southwest Companion Pass, you can take a friend or family member with you for free for up to 2 years! Emily and I consider the Southwest Companion Pass to be the best deal in travel.
Southwest’s latest sale will hopefully help folks get home for Thanksgiving!
