We often choose not to write about cheap flights on budget airlines, like Spirit, because of the extra fees and potential frustration for travelers, but today’s deal is pretty unique. Rather than a cheaper rate on a particular route or destination, Spirit is offering $50 off almost any flight (with a few exceptions) for travel between August 25 and September 2 if you book by midnight tonight.
To take advantage of the deal, enter promo code “50OFF” on Spirit’s homepage when booking. Even with the discount, you’ll still be subject to the regular extra fees, but the base fare will be reduced on the checkout page. With lower base fares, you might receive a reduced discount, as you’ll see in the examples below.
Also keep in mind that Spirit flights often come along with many additional fees, such as a fee for carry-on bags ($26-100), checked luggage ($21-$55), seat selection ($1-50), and food and drink.
Routes: LAX-LAS, LGA-DFW, ORD-BWI, LGA-FLL, and many other options
Cost: $50 discount on most routes ($25 in each direction)
Dates: August 25, 2015 – September 2, 2015
Booking Link: Spirit
Pay With: American Express Premier Rewards Gold, Citi Prestige or Chase Sapphire Preferred
Here are a few examples of what you can book:
