On Tuesday, Southwest launched a huge airfare sale, with one-way fares ranging in price from $49-$149 for travel from August 24 through December 16. Originally, the sale was scheduled to wrap yesterday, but because of technical difficulties that may have made it difficult for some customers to book, the airline has extended the discount for another day. There are hundreds of routes to choose from, with many of the airline's key markets covered. You have until 11:59pm (local time in the originating city) tonight to book, so get on it!

Here's a look at some sample fares that are currently available:

Boston (BOS) to Baltimore (BWI) for $49:

Another great thing about this sale: It means Southwest Rapid Rewards redemptions are also on sale, with flights starting at 2,273 points each way.

If you want to save your cash, you could redeem less than 5,000 Southwest Rapid Rewards points for a round-trip flight between Minneapolis and St. Louis, which isn't a bad deal at all (heck, it's a steal!).
