The great thing about Southwest sales is that the sale price results in lower points for award travel as well, since the award price is revenue based. Along with that, another great thing about Southwest is that you can cancel your reservations – paid or award – and rebook them at no additional cost in fees. So, if you have previously booked travel for this sale period, you need to look and see if your trip has dropped in price and rebook with these sale prices.

This is a great deal and a great sale! Already, I rebooked tickets and saved several thousands of points so check your tickets already booked! If you have not booked travel yet, now is the time to do it. Granted, the holidays are not covered by the sale but that just means more time with your family (or less time, depending on how you paint that picture!).
