If you're just now beginning to get feeling back in your limbs after last week's truly insane cross-country deep freeze, we won't blame you for considering a permanent move to the tropics. Though even if you can only sneak away for a few days to enjoy a well-deserved warm up somewhere south, now's a good time to book something because Southwest is running a brand new flash sale and has flights all over the country for as cheap as $49.
From now through February 7, Southwest is running a huge sale on flights this winter and spring to and from nearly every city it operates out of, and some are going for less than 50 bucks each way.

Debatable: It’s Fine To Recline Your Seat On a Plane
Before you clear you calendar and pack your bags, there are a few things to consider since there's always some fine print with flash sales like these. The sale fares only apply to travel between February 26 and May 22, and specifically on flights departing Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Saturdays for domestic travel (days vary for international flights). Fortunately, though, there aren't any blackout dates. Also, since Southwest lets everyone check two backs for free, you don't have to worry about packing light, which is excellent news if you're ready to book a one-way ticket to wherever the warmest beach is and never come back.
