Yesterday, I wrote about the new Southwest sale out (which is a pretty regular occurrence!) and a few weeks ago I wrote how you could save at least 5% on your Southwest tickets as well. Thanks to a sale on eBay for Southwest gift cards, you can save another 8% on top of the current Southwest sale and even as much as 13%! Here is how to do it.
How to Save More On Southwest Sale Deals
Discounted Southwest Gift Cards
PayPal Digital Gifts is having a sale on Southwest gift cards (something they do every few weeks or so). This sale is on $100 gift cards and is for $8 off. If you want to make it simple, just head over there now and buy some for an easy 8% off your Southwest tickets.
These gift cards are electronic and you will receive them from PayPal Digital Gifts anywhere from a couple of hours up to 24 hours from the time of purchase.
Save an EXTRA 5%
But, if you want to save even more, you can do that if you use the right credit card when you buy your gift card. By “right” credit card, if you use a Chase Ink card (their small business cards), purchases from PayPal Digital Gifts code as one of their bonus categories which means you get 5 points per dollar spent!
If you have a Chase Ink Plus or Ink Business Preferred, you will get those points as Ultimate Reward points. Those can be worth a minimum of 1.5 cents when transferred to Southwest or even more when used with other travel partners. So, while your base earning is equivalent to 5% savings on the gift card, your redemption could give you a lot more in value!
If you have the Chase Ink Cash, it will give you 5% cash back but you can convert that into Ultimate Reward points and get the same value as above if you have an Ultimate Rewards earning card. See this post for more details about that.

Southwest sales bring regular airfare prices down a bit already but when you can combine it with gift cards that will give you another 8% discount (plus 5% more with the credit card), that is getting towards some great savings! If you have upcoming Southwest travel in mind, consider buying these gift cards now for use during this sale!
