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

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.

And when you do spend on dining, you should use a credit card that will maximize your rewards and potentially even score special discounts. Thanks to temporary card bonuses and changes due to coronavirus, you may even be able to score a meal at your favorite restaurant for free.
These are the best credit cards for dining out, taking out, and ordering in to maximize every meal purchase.
