Southwest is currently having a sale for flights booked by March 13th for travel through June 7th. While fare sales are great, I sometimes take them to be a marketing ploy. With that being said, I always double check flights that I’ve already booked to see if the price has gone down.
With this particular fare sale a flight I booked for my parents actually went down in price. Since their flight was booked on points, I was able to rebook their flight and get the point difference credited back.
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.
You can learn more about getting your money/points back with a Southwest flight in this prior detailed post.
