Southwest has a $49 flight sale going on right now.

From now until September 12th, Southwest is offering discounted flights for a number of routes. In order to take advantage of the deal, you’ll need to purchase your ticket at least 21 days in advance, and there are some blackout days where the deal won’t be available at all.

Travel can happen as early as September 24th and can be booked as far out as March 5, 2020, depending on where you’d like to go. So, if you’ve been planning a trip for early next year, you might want to see if there’s a deal available.

And obviously, not every route is going to offer a $49 fare. That said, even the fares that aren’t under $50 are in some cases pretty solid discounts.

For San Francisco, for instance, I can score a $61 flight to Las Vegas. There’s also a $180 flight to NYC, both of which are pretty solid deals. you can check out the specific deals for your city on Southwest’s site. Just change the drop-down menu above the list of fares to your city (or the Southwest hub closest to you).

Like all fare deals, it’s always good to check into a few other airlines before you book. While these fares all likely represent a discounted fare from Southwest’s normal price, in some cases you might find another airline that offers the same route traditionally cheaper.

Worth noting: Southwest allows you to cancel and change flights for free, so if you do book one of these flights and then decide you’d rather fly another airline or not travel at all, you can cancel it and get your money back in the form of a Southwest credit you can use for future travel. It’s a nice detail that can make springing for one of the cheap fares an even easier decision.
