Southwest Airlines frequently holds fare sales, which can be a great way to nab a cheap flight, often for less than $100. Some fare sales are tied to major shopping days like Cyber Monday, while others are flash sales.
But waiting to book your flight until a big sale might foil your deal-hunting plans.
By the time the sale has started, that flight you’ve been eyeing might be fully booked. If you wait for a better deal, the price could end up rising—and you could end up getting locked out.
If you fly with Southwest more than once a year, your best strategy is to book your flight now, even if a better deal shows up later. Here’s why.
