This new sale runs from October 3 – February 15. This is one of the wider sales from Southwest. This means it is a great time to book some cheaper flights for next year now!

The prices for airfare this year have gone up due to a combination of factors (fuel prices, shrinking schedules due to staffing issues, seeking profits, etc). While these sale prices are not as cheap as normal, this is a great time to buy with Southwest because you can always cancel your flights later for free – and get your points back or your cash fare back as a credit that will not expire!

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. If you booked it with points, you will receive the points back in your account for the difference.
