Two Ways This Sale Saves You Money Right Now

1. You can plan ahead and book your travel through May 2020

If you know you’re going to travel in the next six months, now is the time to plan and book. The process is simple:

  1. Go to Southwest’s sale page
  2. Book your travel

On Southwest’s sale page, you can see all the valid flights, as well as their prices. You can plan your next trip around the flights with great prices. Not only will you get cheap airfare, but planning in advance may also make you happier (especially at these prices).

Booking your flight on one of the best Southwest credit cards can earn you some nice Rapid Rewards as well.

Just be aware of the Rapid Rewards changes coming next year.

2. Check your booked flights for price drops

Already have all your travel planned through May 2020? No problem. You can save money by rebooking your flights.

In one minute, you can earn travel credit

Whenever you rebook for a cheaper ticket, Southwest will give you either travel credit or points. By paying attention to every Southwest sale, you could earn more flights for dirt cheap.

You might even earn enough travel credit to travel more. The travel credit lasts for one year, which is plenty of time to take advantage of this sale to book new flights. Also, note that Southwest will match your elite status on any other US-based airline with its own A-List Southwest status for free, through December 31, 2019.

If you booked your flights with points, you could redeem your points

Sales on Southwest airlines aren’t rare. In fact, there’s usually a sale every week or so.

Southwest allows you to rebook flights easily any time the price drops. On most airlines, rebooking a flight costs a fee.

Southwest is the only major airline that never charges a fee for rebooking flights. All you have to do is pay the difference if the cost of your rebooked ticket is more than the original ticket. You can do this all on Southwest’s handy app, too.

Don’t forget, you also get two free checked bags with Southwest plus you can earn the coveted Southwest Companion Pass.
