Alaska Airlines Fall Sale Oct 10-Dec 11 flights

Alaska Airlines is motivating me to make a long overdue trip for touring California’s second largest city in San Diego. Besides the low $137.80 roundtrip fare between Monterey and San Diego during the Alaska Airlines Fall sale being a good deal, the opportunity as a California resident to earn a free Alaska Airlines ticket with two roundtrips to San Diego makes this a great time for a San Diego visit.

When Family Life Gets in the Way of Travel

Loyalty Traveler readers will hopefully be getting some San Diego hotel reviews in October. Two of my planned trips have already been blown for September and October. An Ireland trip for October was cancelled due to family health issues and the Ireland trip supplanted the road trip to Yellowstone National Park which I had initially planned in August.

Staycation days hanging out around Monterey, Big Sur and the Santa Cruz Mountains have kept me occupied during the past month of gorgeous central coast weather, but I am really feeling the travel itch after two months at home.

This Alaska Airlines Fall Sale provides a good opportunity for me to fly nonstop to a part of California that normally takes about 8 to 10 hours of driving time.

And for those of you in San Diego, hotel rates in Monterey for midweek stays drop to low-season after November 1. 

These are the kind of loyalty promotions I love where I can travel somewhere and earn a travel credit worth as much or more than the cost to fulfill the promotion offer.
