My question is, can I use the points for $20 off for each member in my family? I think we will have 60 points and there are 3 of us so I am hoping I can us it for each one of us.
Yes, I used that code and it gives you $20 off for each passenger ($10 off each way). So for the 4 of us it saved $80. Very much worth it.

Sorry,I have another question. I've already reached my max of 120 points this week. If I'm booking a flight for me, DH, and DD can my DH sign up for my coke rewards and use the rest of the caps I have for this week? I'm thinking we will have the 300 points we need for $20 off for the 3 of us. I wanted to be able to book this week if possible because SW's fares keep going up for the flight we're needing. I just read something about the SW Birthday sale. Is that like a really significant savings? Enough of a savings you think that I should wait until the end of June to book when their B-day sale comes out? We are flying to LGA on August 16th.

I think he can have his own account, but not 100% sure.

You can always book now, then if the fares come down, you can re-book at the lower price with no penalty.

You won't get a refund, but you will get reward points you can use on a future flight.

You only need 100 coke rewards points for all of you as long as you book it in one transaction. You don't need 300 points for 3 passengers.

Early Bird Question...

I booked our flights for September back in March and added EBCI... Last week we decided to go for an earlier flight, so I went ahead and changed under our current reservation. Will the time stamp for EBCI be from date I originally booked or from the date of the change? I realize it really makes very little difference, just curious??? Thanks!

72 hr sale....I just booked out flights from Little Rock to Orlando for 1/2 the price of what has been listed. Just search the dates and there are many that are 49, 99, and 139 per way based on distance. I have been watching prices since Feb and they haven't dropped a single time until now. There is probably less than 48hrs left of this sale. I had to change the times I was hoping for by about an hr either way to get the deal but it was totally worth it for 1/2 off!! Check it out! You cannot have Friday or Sunday as a travel day to get the discount.

My return flight from MCO to Providence was at $99 yesterday at noon and when I got home from work to book it-it was back up to $140. Within 5 or 6 hours!! So frustrating!!

First time ever booking with southwest !!!

Well, it is official, I was worried we would have to cancel with airfare being double the price of what it has been in the past, only 1 slight hiccup......

Well, from Dallas Love Field to Orlando (MCO) for both me & my 16 year old son, with Southwest, it came to a total of $514 !!!! Which is just about what I paid last year to fly American Airlines.

The only hiccup, to get a Direct (they don't have non-stop with Southwest out of Dallas Love Field) flight with only 1 stop & NO PLANE CHANGE, there was ONLY one time frame & that was flying out at 3:30 pm & arriving in Orlando Florida at 8:50 PM. That is the hiccup, we have in the past 10 years always flown with American Airlines & left at 6:00 AM & arrived on our very first day at 9:30 am, so we have basically lost a WHOLE day having to switch to Southwest Airlines.

But American Airlines prices are out the roof !!! And they are still in "limbo" with their business decisions. The total fare if we flew with American Airlines non-stop is approx $700-800 total, so we had no choice but to choose Southwest, I hope all goes well with choosing Southwest, we have never flown with them.

But at least we are GOING !!!!! It really feels official now !!

Can anyone tell me if Southwest changes their flight times or do they stay consistent with what you originally booked? I specifically booked Direct (no plane change, with just one stop) both ways round trip. They only had one option for Direct- no plane change with just one stop.

I my experience SW hasn't changed flight times. I'm now at the point where they are the only airline that I fly. I like that 2 checked bags are free, if I have to change a flight there is no fee, if the price of the flight goes down I can rebook to get a credit and if I have to cancel they'll give me a credit that expires 1 year from the date I booked. I just don't see these benefits from other airlines.

Thank you Grumpy Grandpa !! That is great info to know !!! I also added the Early Bird Check In for both flights, that only added a total of $40 to the total fare, making it $554, to ensure my son gets a window seat !! We already had to pay $50 one way for our two checked bags with American, so total of $100 additional for that.

I will miss the nonstop flight of American. We could leave at 6:00 AM & be in Orlando by 9:30 AM, it was great !!! Being on a plan for 4 hours as opposed to 2:30 hours will not be fun !!! But I could not stomach those extreme airfares from American this year & who knows what the outcome will be after their negotiations??? I just could not risk Southwest's flights filling up & being left with no other alternatives !!

Thanks again for the great info !!!

Okay, I have Early Bird Check in, I know 36 hours before your flight you get a preassigned boarding segment. You still have to "print" your boarding pass, but here is my question...
Do you actually NEED a paper copy of the boarding pass if you use a smart phone/Iphone? Can't I just use the Southwest mobile app & get my two boarding passes electronically loaded or is it better to just print them?

I tried to locate the answer online at SW.com, but this is the best I could find on their site....

When are EarlyBird Check-In Customers' boarding pass positions reserved?
EarlyBird Check-In Customers will have their boarding passes reserved beginning 36 hours prior to their flight's scheduled departure time. Boarding Passes can be printed beginning 24 hours prior to the flight's scheduled local departure time.
