Flying during the holidays is a bitch, but in between and after can save you a bunch of cash. Case in point: Frontier is running a sale right now that can get you out of here for $30. You've just got to act fast.
As with any sale that seems to good to be true, there are catches. First, the discount travel period for most flights runs between December 2, 2015 and February 10, 2016, but blackout dates include days around Christmas and New Year's. Second, while fares can get as low as $25 plus a few cents, they're only available to Discount Den Subscribers, which costs $49.99 per year to join. But, if you're not a subscriber, you can still get a ticket as cheap as $30, which is still really damn cheap.
So here's how to get the low, low, low fares. Book one of the many winter deals by today, November 18th, 2015. These advertised deals are already pretty good, but once you get to check-out they get even better. Add in the promo code SAVE25 for an additional 25% off. Some of the least expensive tickets take you from Atlanta to Washington DC; Chicago to Philly; and Las Vegas to San Francisco, just to name a few. Other fantastic fares include New York to Miami for $79; and San Francisco to Chicago for $79. Those are the prices advertised without the added 25% off.
Check out all the deals, dates, and travel restrictions here. And get on this.
