Here are the best deals we've come across this week for shoppers, travelers, and hungry diners:

Affordable Getaways with Southwest
Start planning your next getaway thanks to the airfare sale offered by Southwest Airlines via DealBase. (Click on "Southwest Airlines" in the top line on the landing page to see this sale.) These include some of the lowest prices we've ever seen for domestic one-way fares from Southwest Airlines. Book this travel deal by September 3 for travel from September 8, 2015, through March 3, 2016. Thinking about getting insurance for your trip?

2-for-1 Sandwiches at Carl's Jr.
They say there's no such thing as a free lunch. Breakfast, on the other hand, can be free—once you've made a purchase—at participating Carl's Jr. locations. Purchase one Cinnamon Swirl French Toast Breakfast Sandwich and get a second one for free via this printable coupon. (The same offer applies at Hardee's with this coupon.) Deal ends September 23.

Bonus Gift Card with Paper Towels
Paper towels might not be the flashiest purchase, but they are certainly a necessity. Right now, you can pick up three eight-park rolls of Bounty Select-A-Size Giant Role for a total of $29.97 ($9.99 apiece), and get a $10 Target gift card to boot. (Add three packs to cart to see this price.) In-cart, select in-store pickup to cut it to $26.97. Assuming you'll use the gift card, that's 71¢ per roll and the lowest total price we could find by $26. Deal ends September 5.

Early Labor Day Sales with Sears
Labor Day is probably your last chance to score big deals before the huge discounts on Black Friday, and the sales have started already. Sears discounts a selection of appliances, electronics, apparel, and more as part of its Labor Day Kick Off Sale. Even better, take $5 off select orders of $50 or more via coupon code "SEARS5OFF50," $35 off $300 or more via code "SEARS35OFF300" or $50 off appliances of $499 or more via code "EXTRA50." ("Hot Buy" items are excluded from coupon discounts.) Opt for in-store pickup to dodge shipping fees, which start around $5. (Select items and many orders of $59 or more receive free shipping. Larger items may carry additional shipping charges.) Deals end September 2.
