Yes just cancel the existing reservation first and then when you book the new one use the original confirmation # in the apply travel funds box. I did this yesterday and it worked fine.

can someone tell me how long it takes from the reward to go from your credit card into your Rapid Rewards account? I just had my first statement close yesterday and the rewards show on the statement, but nothing when I login to my RR account.

Unfortunately, DH, DS and I are not going to be able to go to Disney in December like we had hoped. I have already purchased tickets for our flights. I knew that it was going to be iffy going but there were a great price and I know Southwest does not charge to change plans. My question though is how do I go about canceling our flights? They are non-refundable so I understand that we'll have credits to use. They will need to be used within a year of purchase, correct?

I called Southwest and they canceled it for me and when I rebooked, it asks if you want to apply travel funds, where you would then put in your confirmation number for these flights you are canceling. I believe you can also go to southwest.com and there is an option to cancel a reservation. If you are iffy about it at all, you should just call. It's super easy. I got an agent right away who assured me it was no problem and answered my questions about rebooking.

You can cancel online and you will receive a Confirmation Number for Travel Funds. Keep the print-out as you will need the Confirmation number to use the funds towards future travel.
It is very easy to use the funds; I re-booked this morning, entered the Confirmation number and it automatically deducted my original purchase amount.

Figuring the worst answer can be no: any such animal as an April 2013 code?

Can you get a credit if the price of your flight drops?
My dd is flying to Denver for Thanksgiving and the price of one of the flights dropped $50. I know it isn't a whole lot, but $50 bucks is still $50. And she could use it on another flight.

How will this work?

My husband was just approved for the 50,000 points with SW card. Our family of 5 will be heading back to WDW in August 2013. We each have a RR number and some travel funds left from our trip last month.
When we go to book our trip how will that work? I assume my husband logs into his account to purchase all of our flights and use the 50,00 points? I read that we will have separate confirmation #'s, but can we book all at once under one reservation? The points should cover most of the cost of our flights, but not all. Do we have to book what we can with points, then do a separate reservation to pay cash for what's not covered? What about our travel funds? Are we able to apply them as well?
Sorry too many questions! We've traveled SW a few times, but never with points or travel funds, so this is all new.

Yes, different reservation #s but you book together.
If u don't need that many points to completely cover the cost u can buy points but sometimes it's cheaper to pay cash depends how much u get them for. You cannot apply RR from other accounts. Sign up for Ding! And stalk the website I got 6 one way tickets for 4k each! I'm hoping to get a good discount for or return flights too. DH and I both applied separately so we have 100k but need to book 6 RT.

Thanks for answering my ramble! My daughter and I each have a $37 credit and my husband and 2 boys have $17 credits. Can we apply these and pay with points or do you have to pay cash to use the credit?

You can only use those for the 911 fee part because you would have to pay cash for those.
