Do you live in Phoenix? Want to visit the area sometime between now and next September? Then hop on your favorite airfare booking site pronto. United is having a smashing sneak sale to and from the Valley of the Sun (Phoenix/Nashville $59 each way, no round-trip purchase required to cite just one example). We expect these fares to hold for a good part of the day, but act fast.

All these fares are valid for travel any day of the week through September 22, 2006 unless otherwise noted but are subject to prior sale and may not be available every day of the year depending on capacity controls and all that sort of thing.
