Southwest just announced a new promotion where you can earn 2x points on every Southwest flight. It has actually been awhile since Southwest has ran this type of promotion so I am happy to see it finally return!This might be targeted, so check to see if you are eligible in your “Promotions” section on your Southwest account. You can check here.
With this promotion, you must book and travel between April 6 and June 13. I emphasize the “book by” piece as this will only work for NEW reservations and not existing reservations that were previously booked but actually take place during these dates. While I hate that existing flights will not count, this is a very common practice for Southwest so I am not surprised. You also must register PRIOR to booking your flight, so just go ahead and register now!
Now, if your flight has not gone up in price, you can always cancel your flight and rebook. Changing your flight will not qualify as a new flight, so you’ll have to go through the full steps of canceling/re-booking. I personally have a paid flight coming up, but the flight price has more then doubled, so unfortunately it is not worth it to take advantage of this offer, even though I’d be earning double points.
