Bottom Line

The most tempting fares that I’ve seen (so far) are for travel between the West Coast and Hawaii ($99 one way is a great deal) but there are a few other good deals too. As usual, this Southwest sale comes with more terms than an Apple Music account so make sure you take a look through the restrictions before you start making plans.

The best way to find the lowest fares is to use Southwest’s Low Fare Calendar which should quickly show you if your preferred routes have any great deals on offer. If you’re able to be flexible with your dates, you should be able to find something that works for you.
