In today’s (January 16) weekly check of the best Southwest deals to and from top destinations, there continue to be good prices especially until we hit the busier summer season starting in June. Several of the good January deals are gone as we reach the halfway point in the month, but not all!

Southwest is advertising a sale on TV, which generally is an indicator to me of a major sale. Here are other ways to know when a Southwest sale is a good one.

There are a lot of great deals this week, which I highlighted with red font. Keep in mind I do not include short-haul flights that I feel are driveable (say within a six-hour drive).

Want me to keep an eye on your city? Please post your location in the comments below and if there’s a destination you’re interested in. I’ll rotate through them each week. Hang tight if I have not yet added your city; I am adding about three new ones per week. All I ask is that in exchange you start any credit card applications in the TRAVEL CREDIT CARDS link above and use my affiliate links whenever possible. Thank you!

Southwest is currently accepting reservations through August 6, 2018.

Be sure to always take advantage of the option to earn ~1000 points on subscriptions to Barron’s, Texture, New York Times, etc. that I share with you here on Go to Travel Gal, because several subscriptions could potentially get one person on a round-trip flight at some of these fare prices.

Plus, if you hold the Southwest Companion Pass, which lets one person fly free with you for up to two years. TWO people can fly for between 2,000-3,000 points with these deals. AMAZING!
