I wrote this morning about my frustration with finding reasonably priced transcontinental flights. Well, the fare gods (or revenue management departments) must have heard my complaints – Continental/United just launched a major fare sale on NYC – San Diego, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Portland and more.

These are bookable at Continental.com, just make sure you select the “My dates are flexible +/- 3 days. Check out this search for NYC to San Diego. When you search it should say “from $158 on other dates” Click that button to get the calendar:

$200 TOTAL for NYC to San Diego- what a bargain!

When you click through, the nonstop flights will show first and they will all be $300+, but when you click down to the Continental + Others, you will see the connecting options on United that bring the price down to $158+tax.

There are lots more possibilities and these fares seem to be good for many months, so play around with it and see if it works for you. Remember: BOOK NOW AND THINK ABOUT IT LATER. Continental has a 24 hour flexible refund policy, so you can cancel if you don’t end up needing the flight.

Tip of the hat to TPG reader jammancx for starting this Flyertalk thread discussing the deal! Will update more shortly.

Las Vegas for $200 total

 

Seattle to NYC for $200

    @Dan- try using travelocity.com flexible 6 month search to see whats out there. These fares are going quickly, so I’m not surprised they aren’t available on certain dates
