As I originally wrote about back in 2019, about once a month Southwest offers free changes with no difference in fare.
The offer usually sticks around for a few days and there are limited windows for the free changes. It works for both paid tickets and tickets booked with Southwest points. You can transfer Chase points to Southwest instantly at a 1:1 ratio. You can read more about the offer here.
As I wrote last night, the free change offer is now live for trips booked from 3/11/21-4/11/21. You can change your travel dates and nearby airports for free within 30 days in either direction of your flight, so you can potentially change from flights booked from 3/11/21-4/11/21 to flights between 2/9/21-5/11/21 without paying any difference in fare!
Travel around Pesach is also pricier, so you can use this offer to save a bundle on flights.
The offer allows you to even switch to a nearby airport. For example flights to/from LaGuardia and Islip can be changed for free. Same goes for Cleveland and Cincinnati and many others.
For example if you want a $367 flight on 3/25 from LaGuardia to Orlando:
Or a $320 flight from Islip to Orlando:
You can just book an $48 flight from LaGuardia to Orlando on 3/22:
And then you’ll be able to fly from Islip or LaGuardia to Orlando on any dates from 2/20-4/22 without paying any difference in fare!
Knock down Islip to West Palm Beach from $432 to $88 by booking LaGuardia to West Palm Beach:
Knock down Islip to Fort Lauderdale from $245 to $54 by booking LaGuardia to Fort Lauderdale:
Knock down LaGuardia to Tampa from $124 to $49:
Knock down Philadelphia to Orlando from $148 to $49:
