REMINDER: Today is the last day for Southwest’s fare sale. While they have sales quite often, I personally was able to find already booked flights for a lot cheaper and get points back. Many commented that they were able to do the same!
Southwest is currently having a sale where flights start “as low as $69”. While fare sales are great the “as low as” part always gets me. While I do not always trust these sales as many times they are a marketing ploy (in my opinion), I always double check flights that I’ve already booked to see if the price has gone down.
With this fare sale, a flight I already have booked to Florida actually went down in price from $119 to $109. Of course I booked on points, so I was able to rebook my flight and get 558 points credited back to my account.
If you already have a Southwest flight already booked for a flight that decreased in price, you can get back the difference with no change fees:
- For paid flights, you will receive a voucher for the difference to be used one year from the date the flight was purchased. This voucher is non-transferable.
- For flights booked with points, the difference in points will go back into your account. You can re-book your original flight online to get this voucher/point difference credited – no phone call is needed.
