1. Big Southwest Sale
Southwest is having a nationwide sale! Book your flights by August 2, 2018, to get prices as low as $47 one-way. Travel is valid from August 21, 2018, to February 13, 2019.
You’ll find great prices for one-way flights on a number of appealing routes. Here are a few interesting flights:
- Atlanta to Boston for $69
- Austin to Denver for $98
- Chicago to Charleston, South Carolina for $101
- Las Vegas to Long Beach for $47
- and more!
It’s a good idea to book your Southwest tickets as far in advance as possible. If your plans change (or the price of your ticket drops), you can change or cancel your flight without penalty.
Plus, if you have the Southwest Companion Pass, a friend or family member can fly with you for next to nothing for up to 2 years! And you can earn the Companion Pass easily!

2. Up to a 40% Bonus on Hyatt Points Purchases
I was targeted for a 30% bonus when buying at least 5,000 Hyatt points. But some folks are reporting the ability to earn up to a 40% bonus!
Normally Hyatt sells points for 2.4 cents per point. But if you buy 5,000+ points with a 40% bonus, you’ll pay just ~1.71 cents per point.
Note: Hyatt only lets you buy 55,000 Hyatt points per year. But bonus points do NOT count towards that total. So you can buy 55,000 points and earn 22,000 bonus points.
That’s a decent discount, and handy for folks who want to stay at expensive hotels for less.
For example, a weekend at the Park Hyatt Paris Vendome can easily cost $1,400+, or 60,000 Hyatt points. But with a 40% bonus from this promotion, you can buy ~61,000 Hyatt points for $1,056. And you’d save ~$350 on your stay!
Depending on your bonus and where you’d like to stay, you’ll have to do the math to see if this deal makes sense for you.
3. “Penny” Fares on Frontier
Frontier is running its “Penny” sale, and offering one-way tickets for just $15! To get in on the deal, you must purchase your tickets by tomorrow, August 1, 2018. The $15 fares are good for travel from August 14 to October 3, 2018.
Seats are limited, but sale fares do not require a round-trip purchase.
$15 one-way routes include:
- Albuquerque to Denver
- Austin to New Orleans
- Charlotte to Providence
- and more!
You can find Frontier’s Penny Sale here. But don’t forget that you’ll have to pay extra for just about everything with Frontier, including a carry-on bag.
