New Southwest Sale from $49 – Save on Existing Reservations or Book New Ones!

Written by Charlie

There is a new Southwest sale here from just $49 one way. This is a time to save on existing reservations (we saved 9k points!) or book new travel and save!

Another Tuesday brings another Southwest sale. But, there is a reason these are popular when they are so frequent – it gives you the chance to book anytime you want and then change (for free) when the sale comes and the prices drop! Our family saved almost 9,000 points this morning because of that!

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.

I did this today and, from the time I pulled up my reservation, I had the refund back in points in less than 1 minute – fast and easy to do!
