This is just a quick reminder that Southwest’s fare sale that I wrote about a few days back is ending tonight, October 16, 2014. This is one of their better all around sales of the year with flights starting at $49, $99, $129, and $149. While it doesn’t state it this time around, my assumption is the further the distance, the more expensive the flight. They also say Friday and Sunday’s are not included, but I was personally able to find some cheap prices on those dates.This sale is for travel December 3 through December 17, 2014 & January 6 through February 11, 2015. You can learn more about this sale here.
Typically in the past, many other airlines have dropped their prices during this Southwest sale, but it seems as though that wasn’t the case this time around.
Remember, if you already have a Southwest flight already booked for this time period, it is worth looking into to see if the price has gone down. You can read this post “If a Southwest Flight Goes Down in Price…” to get the full step-by-step directions on how to get your money/points back:
- Paid Flight: If you paid for your flight you will receive a voucher for the difference in fare price to be used one year from the date the flight was originally purchased (NOT the date the change process took place). This voucher is non-transferable. The voucher will be tied to the confirmation number of the original flight. There is NO fee for this.
- Using Points: If you booked your flight using points, the difference in points will go back into your account immediately. Again, there is NO fee for this. This is why I love booking Southwest flights using points!
And remember, with Southwest there is no penalty for canceling or changing a ticket. So if you have a lot of points currently in your account, you can book speculatively and cancel later for no fee! This post “Changing a or Canceling a Southwest Ticket” goes through all the scenarios depending on your payment method for the flight.
Anyone able to get a good price? I was personally able to book a flight to Salt Lake City and Denver for a long weekend ski trip!
