While Southwest normally has weekly sales, this is not that! Instead, Southwest has been dropping fares all over their network over the weekend and some flights that would typically be $49 during sales are now as low as $30 for one way!
Crazy Southwest Prices From Just $30 One-Way
This means it is a great time to book new travel or to check on existing travel to get back points or credit for future travel. I checked many routes that I normally look up during sales and they are all the same price or cheaper than sale prices!
The cheapest flight options are between Los Angeles and Las Vegas at just $30 one way but travel from Los Angeles to other airports in the southwest are also quite a bit cheaper as well. I rebooked an upcoming trip twice and saved 50% of the original points used due to the drop in price!
Unlike a sale, I don’t have details on how long these prices will last but I would imagine they would be around for at least a day or so.
How to Make a Southwest Ticket Change for No Fee
If you book a cheap fare, the Wanna Get Away fares, here is what the details are:
- If you cancel within 24 hours of booking, the amount of the ticket goes back to the original form of payment
- If you cancel any other time, the ticket (if paid for with credit card, etc) amount goes to a Southwest credit that is valid one year from the original date of purchase
- You must cancel 10 minutes before departure
If you book the ticket with points, the points will go back into your account and will be eligible for use on any other flight. The points are subject to the normal expiration policy of Southwest and do not expire like the credit above.

If the price has dropped, you simply select to change the flight, enter the reservation 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.
If you are changing a Southwest ticket paid with currency, the difference in fare will be issued as a Southwest voucher for us within 1 year of the date of the issue of the original ticket.
