Southwest Route Map

As always you get 2 free checked bags if booked on Southwest.com.  Plus you can cancel revenue tickets with no charge and use the funds for a future flight.  Point reservations can be cancelled for free with the points redeposited.

If you have previously booked Southwest tickets with cash or points and the price has gone down be sure to go online to make a change or call to get a refund for the difference!

When Southwest has a sale the points needed for a free flight also go on sale as Rapid Rewards is a revenue based program.  A one-way short-haul flight can be had for just 2,273 points-a value of 1.91 cents per point

You can transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points instantly to Southwest at a 1:1 ratio.

If you have a Chase Ink Plus or Ink Cash card you can earn 5 Ultimate Rewards points (transferable to several airlines and hotels) per dollar spent by buying Southwest gift cards at Staples.

If you have a Southwest companion pass your paid and free travel would be effectively doubled, so you would have $10,000 worth of paid flights plus $3,630 of free flights from points…but that would take a whole lot of Southwest travel!  You can get a companion pass from earning 110,000 points from sources like the Chase Southwest credit card or transfers from hotels programs like Hyatt (50K Chase=50K Hyatt=30K Southwest)

You can change the booking online for the difference; there is no need to call. Changed a bunch of bookings and saved 10K+ points in total.

Danny29

Thanks Dan! Just booked ISP-FLL roundtrip for 2 in Dec for only 22k southwest points!
Now all I need is a deal on a hotel in Miami Beach!

Liraz

Anyone have any luck finding tickets from NY to Ohio?

Dan's the Man

@Danny29: That wasn’t part of the sale. While 22K southwest points to from NY to FLL isn’t a bad deal it isn’t a great deal. British Air only charges 15K roundtrip LGA – FLL. Of course with Southwest you get MUCH better availability. Keep tracking your flight. If it goes down you can call Southwest and they’ll reimburse the difference.

joel

ultimate rewards website bombing out!!! Can’t transfer pts!!

joel

called uw and they said that they are in the middle of a software update!!! they can’t even transfer pts themselves…unbelievable…

challah baker

I didnt know they are discontinuing the LGA-CAK route :(. Will there be a NYC-CLE route on southwest instead?

joel

uw back up! trip booked! thx dan!

Dan

@Dan’s the Man:
22K for 2 people.

@challah baker:
Southwest is ending lots of the old Airtran routes.
CAK-BOS, DCA, DEN, and LGA are being axed.

Only DEN is being moved to CLE.

h

tickets for 145 round trip between miami and chicago on american (and united ltd)
there are tons of dates from june thru january
mostly midweek

DanR NYC

SW allows cancellation / modification up until date of departure & 2 free bags per person, BA Avios only permit 24 hr cancellation and no free bags on US domestic flights.
In August (unrelated to today’s SW deals) I have a one way for a family of 4 (LGA to FLL) for 8,800 SW points person and a return from MIA to LGA on AA.com via 7500 BA Avios.

PS, Southwest does NOT fly to / from Miami, which I was looking for (Port of Miami cruise)

Bottom line… Thanks to bloggers like Dan, we have options and tons of savings !

Thanks DAN !

Diana

Can we buy SW Gift Cards from Staples GCs?

Dan's the Man

@DanR NYC: Southwest doesn’t flit to MIA but they do fly to FLL just not from LGA or EWR. All their NY routes to Florida are from ISP. Not sure where you live but ISP is a 50 minute drive from LGA. They have much cheaper off airport parking than LGA. One of the hotels near ISP offers parking for approx $7 a day.

@Dan’s the Man
Or you can park for free in the ronkonkoma Lirr parking lot for free and take the village taxi for $5 pp.

Dan's the Man

@Bin: You are correct. It all depends on how long you’re going to be away for and how many people you have. If you are a family of 6 people it would cost $60 round trip for the Village Taxi (you may also have to wait for 2 taxis). $60 is enough to park for almost 10 days at the hotel lot I mentioned. So if you’re going away for less than 10 days you’d be better off with the hotel lot.
