Most routes are more expensive, but there are plenty of good deals out there. For example, a one-way flight from Washington, DC, to West Palm Beach costs just $98, or 5,612 Southwest points.

With Southwest’s latest sale, you can book cheap domestic flights into Spring 2018! But valid dates vary depending on the route.
For example, I found one-way flights from Fort Lauderdale to Washington, DC, for $69 (or 3,669 points), to Cancun for $99 (or 3,024 points), and to Belize for $69 (or 2,880 points).

You can check the sale’s landing page for blackout dates. There may also be sales outside of these advertised dates. So it’s always worth a look to see if the flight you want is on sale!
Southwest sales are good news even if you’ve already booked your flights! That’s because when the cash price of a ticket goes down, award ticket prices go down. If you’re flights are cheaper with this sale, you can cancel for free and re-book it with the lower price.

Million Mile Secrets readers also love Southwest because every passenger gets 2 free checked bags.
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!
