The Consolidated Alaska Airlines Flash Sale thread

http://www.alaskaair.com/content/dea...114_SALE_2HR||

Run and get a great fare to fly from Portland to Atlanta, San Francisco, San Jose, or Washington D.C.—starting at $55 one way*. Travel from Portland on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday, and return to Portland on Monday or Tuesday. Imagine a southern winter walk, or a California getaway. Why not grab a trip to go see friends or family? Book your flight by 1:00 pm on January 14, 2014 for travel between January 16, 2014 and January 21, 2014. Ready. Set. Fly.

There's no same day turn on PDX - ATL - PDX, correct?

That wouldn't be too bad of a mileage run at about 4.5 cents/mile. Ha -- don't even bother to price SEA - PDX into any of these trips.

I do really like this idea. Well done, AS!

Thanks for the heads up. I managed to get in on a PDX-DCA-PDX for $99 each way. I'll go visit some of the museums I skipped last time I was there.

Are these flash sales fairly new ? I have never heard of them before.

$99 Transcons are certainly MR worthy.

The comments seem to suggest this was the second. Glad someone was able to take advantage of it! I suspect they are testing response. Keep an eye out for more!

http://www.alaskaair.com/content/dea...129_SALE_2HR||

Run and get a great fare to fly from Seattle or Portland to Minneapolis, Colorado Springs, San Antonio, and Omaha—starting at $79 one way*. Travel to your destination or return to the northwest on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. Imagine a winter walk in fresh Colorado air, or a Texas getaway. Why not grab a trip to go see friends or family? Book your flights by 1:00 pm on January 29, 2014 for travel between February 1, 2014 and February 28, 2014. Ready. Set. Fly.
Terms:
Fare Rules: Purchase by 1:00 p.m. (PT) on January 29, 2014. Travel is valid Monday through Saturday from February 1, 2014 through February 28, 2014. Bag fees apply for checked baggage.
Terms and Conditions: Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights or all days. Bag fees apply for checked baggage. An additional VAT fee from $2.15 (CAD) per bag for bags checked in Canada may apply. For travel solely within the state of Alaska, customers may check up to three bags free of charge. Additional fees apply to check more than three bags or overweight or oversized items. These fares are nonrefundable and are only available on Alaska Airlines. A ticket purchased at an Alaska Airlines airport location or through one of our reservation call centers will cost $15.00 more per person than the advertised fare. Applicable fare and tax differences apply to any changes made after ticketing. A $125(USD) change fee per person applies to changes made within 60 days of ticketed travel. The change fee is waived when travel is wholly within the state of Alaska on flights operated by Alaska Airlines. Fares include U.S. government taxes and fees, including the September 11th Security Fee. Canadian and Mexican government taxes and fees that are included in the fares shown are based on the current currency exchange rate and are subject to change.

These really need to be communicated better. I have tickets already pdx-msp during the travel period, but a lower fare would have been great. I can't afford to sit at my computer and refresh the AS site every half hour every day to catch these things.

I like how they couldn't come up with anything charming to say about Omaha

I'm not even sure if this was available via the main website. I saw it from Twitter and reposted it here.

For me (and I might be in the minority), but I'm not a tweeter and don't use Twitter. Facebook I check once or twice a day. Being 'connected' with technology is one thing, being joined at the hip with it is something else.

The link you had took me to AS.com, so have to think it appeared there, too, on their front page. Email still works, so why not notify flyers/customers that way?
