New Southwest Summer Sale Details:

  • Purchase from June 28 through July 7, 2022, 11:59 p.m. Central Time.
  • Continental U.S. and interisland Hawaii travel valid July 12 through August 31, 2022.
  • Except as otherwise specified, continental U.S. and interisland Hawaii travel is valid only on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

So, this is a narrower sale than normal with the sale prices only being valid on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. But, if you are able to travel on those days, there could be some great prices available to you for summer travel.

Prices on airfare have been going up a lot lately, due in part to both demand and fuel costs. So, while this sale may not be as cheap as normal sales, any opportunity to save on airfare is going to be good. For the absolute cheapest routes, check out west in southern California, Phoenix, and Las Vegas.

But, if you want even cheaper, the island hopping flights in Hawaii are available for just $29 each way!

This sale runs for more than a week so you definitely have some time to plan. Remember, you can always cancel for free later (tickets paid with a credit card will be refunded as travel credit while points will return to your account).

Special 75,000 Point Offer!

If you want to get 75,000 Southwest points, worth over $1,000 in Southwest travel and they count towards the Southwest Companion Pass, click on the link here to check it out! It is a great deal which will line up tons of free travel for you on Southwest! I always prefer to buy Southwest tickets with points instead of cash since the points just go back into my account if I need to cancel.

This is a personal referral link that gives me points as well if you are approved – thanks!

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.
