You can get return flights to Vegas for a fraction of what a new iPhone costs

Aug 8 2018, 5:15 pm

Let’s do some math.

The current starting retail price for an iPhone X via the Apple Store Canada is $1,319. It’s a lot of money when you think about the fact that you’re probably going to drop it several times, and you’ll just want to scrap it for an upgrade when the new version is released. We get it.

But the reality is that instead of buying a brand-new iPhone X, you could be out there living your best life and fulfilling your wanderlust desires — in Las Vegas.

Swoop – the new ultra-low-cost airline owned by WestJet Group of companies – is running some incredible deals on flights right now. They’re so good that you can actually get return flights from Abbotsford to Las Vegas for a total of $214.60 — one-sixth of the cost of an iPhone X.

We’re not kidding.

These prices are based on the time of writing, departing from Abbotsford on October 14 ($99) and returning from Las Vegas on October 18 ($115.60).

Located in Nevada’s Mojave Desert, Vegas gets hot weather year-round and that means you could be soaking up the sunshine there in October when it’s pouring rain in Vancouver.

And hey, what good is a new phone without any amazing new memories to enjoy with it?


And if you want to make your flights with Swoop feel that little bit more VIP in Vegas style, you can add priority boarding for $10.50, extra legroom (prices vary), or WiFi. Pro tip: If you opt for seat selection and purchase an emergency exit row seat, you automatically get priority boarding free because emergency exit row travellers always board first. You’re welcome.
