Get ready to pack your carry-on bag! There's a new airfare sale that will have you planning a vacation with tickets this cheap. But act fast...you have to book by midnight this Thursday!

There's a Southwest airfare sale going on for travel in late August through mid-December, except Friday and Sundays. Blackout dates include the usual days right around Thanksgiving.

This sale is set up by zones:

  • $49 one-way (OW) when traveling up to 500 miles from your home city
  • $79 OW for most location up to 1,000 miles
  • $129-$149 OW for travel from coast to coast

Go to Southwest.com to find these fares. If you're having trouble, then try a multi-airline search at Kayak.com, Bing.com, or Google.com to pull in matching fares from other airlines.

You must book the Southwest fares by midnight on Thursday, June 5. Travel must be completed by December 17, 2014.
