Happy Saturday, readers!
It’s been a busy week for flight deals, with the JetBlue 20% off and 10% off promo codes and the SFO to JFK for only $254.08 with the 20% off Virgin America coupon floating around, there are really only a few things that will make this week even better for flight deals. One of them is being able to travel to Hawaii for only $297 roundtrip.
Those of you who have been to Hawaii or have ever checked for flight costs will know that flights to Hawaii, even from San Francisco, are never cheap and usually run in the mid $400s to mid $500s. On prime vacation dates, trips to Hawaii run as high as $1,000+ roundtrip. (If you don’t believe me, just check the airfare prices for Labor Day Weekend.)
Thanks to the folks over at The Flight Deal, I’m able to share with you some dates for GREAT pricing on trips from SFO to LIH (Kauai Island, Hawaii) and SFO to KOA (Kono Island, Hawaii). These prices are available via United Airlines, because they are matching the sale that Alaskan Airlines is running to both of these beautiful islands.
Here are the deets:
- Sale dates are for travel between September 5th to October 31st.
- Book via United.com; type in SFO and then either LIH or KOA; make sure you select for roundtrip and “My Dates are Flexible” and choose to start on September to view dates.
- Pricing will depend on availability (I would advise you book sooner than later)
Doing a quick search on SFO to LIH, it looks like a lot of the good weekend dates are already snagged. But I found that most of the Sundays in mid to late September were still available for the sale price. I sampled Sep 9 roundtrip for 3 days (so return flight on Sep 12) and the two Sundays following that one all show up for $297 roundtrip as well.
I know some of these sale dates cut into the work week…but for Hawaii, it might be a good time to use those vacation days you’ve been just saving up! 😉
