Hi, I need some advice! We have some credit on southwest so we are going to be using them when we fly in august. However, I have been looking at prices, wow. I have never seen southwest so high, last year we paid 59 dollars one way. Should I just purchase them now and now wait any longer, or is there a chance they may change?

You just missed some pretty good deals about a week ago or so. If you fly on SW enough, it is SO easy to re-book cheaper fares and then use the credit. If you get a bunch of credut you can often sell it to friends and family, as it transfers very easy. I just often book and then watch daily for drops.

Yea, they go up and down. Check your price everyday, and buy as soon as you think you're getting a good deal.

Thanks so much for some input! I hate the waiting game!

Keep in mind that if you use an existing credit now and later get a new credit because the price goes down, the expiration date on the new credit will be the same as the one on the credit you used. I got burned by that rule once.
