We all know that Spirit Airlines has some crazy low prices for flights sometimes, but again yesterday I was struck by just how low those prices are. They are having a sale that ends tomorrow night (11:59 PM EST on March 4, 2015) that I think is worth mentioning. There are many decent routes that are selling for less than $40 per person each way. Those are like bus ticket prices!
The travel dates are from 3/10/15 – 3/26/15 OR 4/7/15 – 5/20/15 OR 5/26/15 – 6/10/15, so a fairly large range though of course availability is limited.
You can get fares from $34.10 one-way when traveling on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and fares from $43.10 one-way when traveling on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
I know it is Spirit and everything cost extra, but I can never stop marveling at the reality of flights to the mountains for less than $40 (during late ski season no less)!
Houston – Chicago $34.10
Houston – Denver $38.09
Dallas – Atlanta $34.10
Dallas – Cleveland $34.10
Dallas – Baltimore $34.10
Los Angeles – Las Vegas $34.10
Baltimore – Myrtle Beach $34.10
Phoenix – Dallas $34.10
If the goal is to spend no cash on the flights, keep in mind that for a flight that is selling for $34.10 you would need to spend about 3,400 points from the Barclaycard Arrival Plus™ World Elite MasterCard®, of which you would get back about 340 points (10%) for redeeming for travel. That makes the total cost just over 3,000 points each for a flight! Plus, you would earn Spirit Airlines miles for the flights bought via that method, though Spirit miles are very hard to use up before the expire unless you have the co-branded Spirit card or are really motivated to keep them active via the dining program or online shopping portal.
