"Deals that are nifty by Sister Thrifty"
Those lucky pennies have finally paid off...Spirit Airlines just released an incredible "one cent fare" sale. We're not kidding. You can actually fly between many U.S. cities and even the Caribbean for just a penny! Hurry -- though this sale was just announced, you must book your tickets by midnight tomorrow
(Thurs., April 19).
Do keep in mind that flights are available on very select dates April 21 - Sept. 30. You'll often find you can fly one-way for a penny but the return trip will be higher. Regardless, you'll be getting a terrific deal.

Ft. Lauderdale to Kingston, Jamaica ... $0.01
Atlantic City to Ft. Myers ... $0.01
