BLOWOUT AIRFARE SALES!
Can we take a minute to toot our own horns here at Bestfares? You had better believe it, and today we have trumpets blowing out the latest and greatest news!
We have been reminding you for the past two months, that we would see one whopper of an airfare sale, starting on some Tuesday in October by Southwest and AirTran.
Well folks, our predictions have come true, and today is that Tuesday, because today the airfare sale we have been waiting for is here; and it's a goodie!
To book a cheap fall or winter Southwest Airlines flight you will need a special promotion code. This promo code will deduct 40% instantly off Southwest's Wanna Get Away airfares.
Travel on Southwest between Nov. 28 through Dec. 12, 2012, and Jan. 7 through Feb. 14, 2013. Travel is valid every day of the week on Southwest, except Sundays. You can still use the promo code, but if any portion of your trip falls on a Sunday, that particular portion of the trip will not be discounted.
If you book with AirTran, you get more travel days, as you can travel between between November 28 through December 18, 2012 and January 4, 2013 through March 1, 2013, and travel is valid for every day of the week!
Please note there are a few additional blackout dates on some select routes, including Las Vegas. AirTran will no longer serve Phoenix, effective January 4, 2013, so you will need to use Southwest Airlines to fly that route.
This is a very short sale, as tickets for this sale must be purchased no later than 11:59 pm Pacific Time, Thursday, October 11, 2012.
It is not clear at this time how the other airlines will try to match Southwest's 40% off sale, since this sale requires a special promotional code. But, we do expect the major airlines to do something very similar in price, without a promo code for the same travel periods.
It may take some of the other airlines such as American, Delta, US Airways, United and others until late afternoon Tuesday, or up to early Wednesday morning, to match Southwest's lowest airfares. Many of the airlines will be able to match AirTran's sale fares much quicker, since there in no promo code involved. Stay tuned to Bestfares.com's homepage for further updates.
For all of the details, blackout dates, and other important information about Southwest Airlines special 40% off promo code and AirTran's special discount fall and winter airfares, please click on the link below. Don't snooze on this fall and winter 2013's biggest airfare sale of the year!

Escape To Vegas For A 3 Night Weekend Getaway Loaded With Freebies!
Did someone say Baby needs a new pair of shoes? With the cheap prices and perks being offered this week to Las Vegas, you will have plenty of money left over to purchase Baby a couple of pairs of shoes.
We have two great offers this week to Las Vegas. When we checked departing to Las Vegas mid-week, giving you a Friday night in Vegas, we think the best value is the 4-star LVH.
This hotel has no resort fees, and they are also offering $100 in dining deals at any of their eight on site restaurants. Vegas still has great weather this time of year, so why not take advantage of their 2-for-1 cocktails, being offered every day at their main pool!
Our second offer is with MGM properties. Stay at one of the eleven participating hotels, from the 3-star Excalibur, all the way up to the 5-star Aria, and you could receive up to $100 in food and beverage credit, when you book a three night or longer vacation package. To see the participating hotels and food and beverage credit offer, please click on the link below.
What we are also finding, from some departure cities, is that some of these weekend getaways can be cheaper than weekday departures as long as you depart on a Saturday.
