New Southwest Sale from $49 – Their Sweetheart Sale

Written by Charlie

Time for a new Southwest sale! This one offers their discounted tickets from $49 or as low as $39 if you are island hopping in Hawaii. Save on existing reservations or book new ones!

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and the LUV airline is here with a new sale. Actually, with the Southwest Companion Pass, there is probably not a better airline deal suited for couples! 🙂 But, even traveling solo will get you some discounts from regular prices.

In truth, this is really another Tuesday sale from Southwest though I do enjoy seeing the different ways Southwest advertises them. 🙂 I actually expected to see a Mount Rushmore image for this sale but Valentine’s Day makes more sense (except for the fact that this sale doesn’t cover travel for this weekend! 😉 ).

So, if you have previously booked travel with Southwest, take a quick moment to see if those prices have dropped. The section below tells you how you can get those points or credit back pretty fast!

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.
