Alaska Airlines launched a limited-time sale Wednesday that's good for anyone who wants to lock in low airfares for a fall or winter vacation.
Depending how far you want to go, fares start at $59 each way to Mammoth and $149 each way to Washington, D.C. -- but only until Monday.
The deal: I like the Explore More, Spend Less sale because it includes flights to smaller cities that sometimes cost a bundle. One-way sale airfares from L.A. include $89 to Portland, $99 to Seattle and $109 to Medford, Eugene and Bend in Oregon and Pasco and Bellingham in Washington state. It includes flights from Burbank too.
The sale also applies to cities in Mexico (Mazatlan and Loreto for $149 each way), but the travel window is short; all travel to and from Mexico must take place between Sept. 5 and Oct. 19.
