Spirit Airlines has finally launched a summer sale, and is offering fares for just $34 round-trip on many of its routes, which means you may be able to score a good deal on select dates through November of 2015.
Anyone can book these $34 fares, though if you’re a member of Spirit’s $9 fare club, then you can book these flights for just $23.
Here are some examples of cheap fares I was able to find:
Los Angeles – Baltimore for $34 one-way:
Ft. Lauderdale – Las Vegas for $34 one-way:
New York (LGA) – Ft. Lauderdale for $34 one-way:
Phoenix to Minneapolis for $34 one-way:
All fares must be booked by 11:59PM on July 21, 2015 for travel on the specified dates (which vary for each individual market and direction) on nonstop flights only. Fares are valid on select dates in August, September, October and November 2015. Spirit’s reputation as a low-cost carrier isn’t the greatest, since the airline charges a lot of add-on fees. However, you won’t get hit too hard if you understand the rules, and at these prices, you can get heavily discounted flights even if you do end up paying a bit extra for your carry-on and other services. If you’re looking for a quick getaway this fall, these deals are worth checking out.
While Spirit may not be a part of a major alliance and these cheap flights won’t help toward any major elite status, you can still bank extra rewards by using a card that maximizes airfare purchases, like the American Express Premier Rewards Gold or Citi Prestige (both of which earn 3 points per dollar on airfare), or the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card (which earns 2 points per dollar on all travel purchases). For more suggestions, check out TPG’s post on maximizing airfare purchases.
