Southwest Airlines Sale for Thanksgiving Travel
Thanksgiving can be one of the most stressful times to travel, and one of the most costly. Our family got rid of the Thanksgiving tradition years ago, instead opting for “Thanksmas,” an invented holiday the 2nd weekend in December. Mostly because flights are cheap, but all the families can get together. Southwest is trying to make that a little bit easier this year and is having a Thanksgiving Sale. It’s running for the next few days, so don’t delay in booking.
Tons of fares are available for under $100 each way, and since Southwest covers most of the United States, chances are that you’re going to find a great deal!
Just last week I was looking at what it would cost to get back to Michigan to see the family and fares were running in the neighborhood of $500 each to get there for Thanksgiving. Not exactly the most friendly of airfares. I just looked with this sale and the price dropped down to $370. Not bad for Michigan Thanksgiving standards!
Just choose your city from the dropdown and the sale fares will pop up:
Here’s a sample for Seattle to Las Vegas, not bad for a Thanksgiving week travel!
