Take advantage of this Southwest sale to get big savings on your reservations booked before the sale.

Today is the last day of the Southwest $49+ fare sale. It is a great sale that gives you a lot of the US and more for much less than normal fare prices.

Use This Sale To Save Money/Points On Already-Booked Reservations

Cancellation and Change Policy

But, even if you have already booked your tickets in the past, you can still take advantage of the sale. Southwest has the best cancellation/rebooking policy of the US airlines. Basically, as long as you cancel by 10 minutes before the flight, you get the points back in your account for free and with no penalty. That means you are free to make any changes you want without any problems or loss of points or cash!

Check Your Already-Booked Reservations For Price Difference

So, now is the time to search for your tickets within this sale and see if you have a better price available now than when you had booked it. If the price has dropped, you simply select to change the flight and look at the same dates and flights again. Once you go through and confirm, you will receive a refund of the difference in miles and the cash for the taxes will be transferred for the new ticket.

In 1 Minute, You Can Have Your Points Back!

The whole process takes less than 60 seconds and you could save a lot of money or points! If you had booked your ticket in the past using cash, you will receive a refund in the form of a credit that is usable for 1 year from the time you originally booked the ticket.

Sale Details

Here are the details of the sale so that you know if your already booked reservation falls within the cheaper dates. Even if it doesn’t, it still be worth your time to check. I checked a couple reservations outside of the sale and still saved a few thousand points.
