Deal Alert: Southwest Flights to Hawaii From $99 or 5,848 Points One-Way

Back when Southwest got
approval to fly to Hawaii
, it launched incredible deals with
one-way flights between the mainland and Hawaii starting at just
$49 one-way. But we haven’t seen anything close to a deal on
these high-demand Southwest flights since. That is, until now.

Southwest just put new Hawaii routes on sale, and
Dan’s Deals
points out that prices are starting at just $99
one-way between California and Hawaii or just $29 one-way
intra-Hawaii. To search, head to Southwest’s website and enter
your origin and destination cities. I’d recommend using the
Low Fare
Calendar
to find cheap dates.

Remember that Southwest has a value-based point system. That
means when cash fares are cheap, points fares are also cheap. That
means that you can book flights to Hawaii now for just 1,950 miles
each way, blowing away your next-cheapest point option. If you need
more Southwest points, you can transfer
Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Southwest instantaneously
