Once again CALL southwest 1-800-IFLYSWA, What Southwest did when they changed the ticket reuse rules was for a couple of reasons

1 - TSA security rules,
2 - Prevent people from SELLING reward tickets.

Since you PAID for the tickets your CC is associated with both PNR's and SWA will be able to assist you over the phone.

There used to be a entire industry on Craigslist reselling SWA award tickets and this was both a security nightmare and as SWA saw it revenue being diverted out of their pockets.

On the security nightmare in the paper ticket days - I had earned a reward flight and called SWA about where's my ticket and turned out it had been used so it was filched from the mail. The upshot was I never got the free flight I earned and a while later turned out a mail sorter was grabbing tickets and reselling them but as far as SWA was concerned ticket had been 'used' I probably could have gotten a re-issue but it would just be too much work because I would have to prove ticket was stolen and who stole it etc,etc,etc.

Now even if the ticket was stolen it's no good to anybody but the original purchaser or named passenger.

So they changed the rules and pretty much made it so only people who PAID for the ticket OR the person NAMED on the ticket could use ticketless travel funds.

I dont work for SWA I just fly them every week for business.

So you are saying that if I cal lSW and ask to have a credit applied to my flight that I paid for for my DD I could possibly have it used for my flight. I hve a $30 credit for each of us. I plan to fly in Sept, but DD will not be going with me. So it could be possible to have all $60 applied to my flight alone?

As long as YOU paid for DD's ticket I don't see why not.

Jenseib: Please let us know how it turns out.

I'm afraid you are going to be disappointed though.

I have some Ticketless Travel Funds that I would like to use on an upcoming flight. The flight costs $90 and I have $30 in funds. Can I use the $30 then pay the remaining $60 with my Southwest rewards points?

I've tried buying the ticket using the Reward pts. I am able to add in the the travel funds but they are only applying $5 of the funds to the ticket as this is the only out-of-pocket cost for the flight.

I guess what I am asking is how do I apply the Travel Funds first then pay the remainder my Reward Points?


TIA!

I'm not sure it will work for you. On Southwest's site it says, "Unused travel funds may only be applied toward the purchase of future travel for the individual named on the ticket."

In February I called Southwest to see if I could cancel the flight I bought for my sister using my credit card and have that credit put on my name. I was told that it didn't matter who purchased the tickets. If her tickets were cancelled, then the credit would be in her name and only she could use it, even though it was on my credit card.

If you called, maybe SW would make an exception, but I wouldn't get my hopes up. On a different message board there are instances where people find out that someone in their group who they bought a ticket for is now unable to travel and will most likely never be able to do so again, or at least not within the year, so the credit in that person's name is useless. SW still refused to transfer those credits to the purchaser. Good luck and let us know if it works for you.

My friend told me today that she tried to do this a month ago and they told her no as well...and she is one who usually gets lucky with this kind of stuff.

Does anyone know if you can buy (and earn points) with store gift cards using the southwest visa? Thinking about purchasing some walmart gift cards for presents if that counts.

Good Morning! My September flight from Orlando to Baltimore, has gone down in price today, from $146 to $107.80. So make sure you check your flights today too, so you can get a credit! Good Luck!!!!
