Southwest, Virgin America, and Spirit Cyber Monday Deals

Today only, there are some great deals on the non-legacy carriers.

Southwest

Southwest is offering oneway flights on Christmas Eve for $100 or less oneway. This could considerably cut down on your holiday fares, if you can combine the fare with a cheap oneway home. The full list of cities and T&C are here.

Here’s LAX’s list of sub-$100 destinations.

Atlanta, Nashville, and Chicago stand out as steals. Here’s Chicago’s (MDW) list:

The discounted fares can also be purchased with fewer points. LAX to Atlanta is under 6,000 Rapid Rewards oneway.

Virgin America

Virgin America is offering 10% off specific routes between December 4 and March 6 using code CYBER10. See the full list of routes and terms and conditions here.

On top of that, if you are among the first 3k bookers, you will get free wi-fi on the flight. I just got the email about this minutes ago, so I think you have a good chance of that.

Virgin America is my second-favorite domestic in-flight experience behind JetBlue and just ahead of Hawaiian.

Take $50 off roundtrip travel November 28 and December 18 with promo code “50OFF”. Full terms and conditions, and book here.

There are a ton of options for the cheap fares, but you have to fly on select Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and you have to join the $9 fare club, which costs $60 per year, but grants benefits like exclusive sales and discounted bag fees.

Recap

Southwest, Virgin America, and Spirit are all having deals that end today that are worth looking at. Please factor in baggage fees when booking.
