Now through Thursday only, Southwest Airlines is offering one-way, non-stop flight deals for as low as $49. 

Terms and conditions apply, which are noted below, but the three-day sale features deals for $49, $79, $99 and $129. 

Here's a screen shot of what's available out of Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. 

Do note that these are one-way prices, so you need to double the price ($49 to $98) if you plan on coming back. 

The deals are good for domestic and international travel between Aug. 21 to Dec. 12, although the deal is only good to San Juan, Puerto Rico from Sep. 5 to Dec. 6. But do know, the deal does not include travel on Aug. 31, Sep. 3 and Nov. 16-27, and flights San Juan are valid only Mondays through Thursdays.
