Remember – Southwest is the best option for inter-Hawaii flights since these $29 fares come with 2 bags each and they work with the Southwest Companion Pass!

Yes, there are a host of blackout dates, all centering around the big holidays through the end of the year. But, that doesn’t mean you should avoid checking those dates! I have found that they still have some pretty good prices on those “blacked out dates” even if they aren’t as good as the other sale dates.

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.
