Alaska Airlines has some strong sale fares in its latest airfare promotion, but they're soon coming to an end. Around through Thursday, January 9, this limited-time sale promotes fares from $53 round-trip or $44 one-way (round-trip is not required). Travel is valid from late January through mid-March.

Baggage

Saver Fares allow for limited seat selection in the back of the aircraft. However, finding seats next to a travel partner may be difficult on some routes. If you choose not to select a seat, one will be assigned to you during check-in.

Alternate Fares

Alaska's Main fares are usually around $10-$35 more each way and include a wider selection of seats to choose from and allow ticket changes/upgrades for a fee. Checked bag fees are the same $30 each way.

Other major airlines that are matching are mostly Basic Economy fares with similar restrictions. The main difference is that United's Basic Economy only includes a small personal item. Southwest does not sell Basic Economy and includes two free checked bags.

A few routes may have lower fares on connecting flights or for travel on ultra-low-cost carriers like Allegiant, Frontier, Spirit, or Sun Country.

Example Booking

As an example, I found seats departing Portland PDX on Tuesday, February 4, returning from Everett on Saturday, February 8 for $52.29 roundtrip.
