Book your fall getaway with Southwest from $39 or 2,240 points

© The Points Guy If you’ve been holding off on making fall travel plans, but are ready to book now, you’re in luck, reports TPG’s Benji Stawski. Southwest is back with another sale, this time with discounted fares across its network.

Now through Sept. 27, Southwest is offering discounted Wanna Get Away fares for travel throughout the fall. Although Southwest is advertising fares from $59 one-way, the TPG team was able to find fares as low as $39 each way. Alternatively, you could book your flight from 2,240 points (worth $33.60 based on TPG valuations).

You won’t see the lowest advertised fares every day of the week so you’ll want to use Southwest’s handy low-fare calendar button to search by cheapest price. As a general rule of thumb, the shorter the distance, the lower the fare.

$300 flights to Greece

TPG’s Caroline Tanner reported this week on round-trip flights to Greece for under $300, courtesy of our friends at Scott’s Cheap Flights.

This flight deal is massive and includes basic economy flights from over 150 U.S. cities, ranging in price from as little as $286 to $521.

Flights can be found from three cities — New York, Philadelphia and Chicago — for less than $300. This marks the best price on record for the included routes. Previously, the lowest price for ORD-ATH was $294 round-trip, and it normally costs $850.

There are more than 100 departure cities with round-trip flights totaling $400 or less, including from St. Louis’ Lambert International Airport (STL).

JetBlue Mint or AA business class for under $800 round-trip

Whether you’re an American Airlines or JetBlue Airways fan, you can find fares from Miami (MIA) and West Palm Beach, Florida (PBI), to Los Angeles (LAX) on lie-flat, business-class seats for just $797 round-trip, reports TPG’s Stella Shon.

These fares can run double the price normally and work if you’re booking a one-way flight instead.

JetBlue Mint has long been touted as the best domestic transcontinental flight, although American Airlines business class is another (very) solid option worthy of consideration.
