Southwest has a revenue based frequent flyer program, so a fare sale means that both cash AND award bookings using points will usually cost less!

Here are 1-way flights I found interesting:

  • Los Angeles to San Francisco starting at $69 or 3,516 Southwest points
  • Newark to Chicago starting at $89 or 4,819 Southwest points
