Is it true that with Southwest you can book flights but you are always able to change them without incurring a fee? Does this include award travel as well, booking with points?
Yes, SW will change your flight without incurring a fee. But be careful. On the lowest web only prices, the difference in amount is not refunded. It is held in a credit for one year under each ticket name, non-transferable. I'm trying to wait until the June 2013 flight prices drop. I will fly again within one year to use my credit, but my grandkids will not, so their credit will not do me any good.

I am looking for June discounts as well. Last year we got a pin I think around Jan/Feb and it was free dining. Free qs for value and moderate and regular for deluxe. Anyways the pin had dates in May. I called and they said actually I could have used it through August. Unfortunately, we had to cancel that trip and hoping to go this summer. But really need another pin or public discount offer. Has anyone heard any rumors of free dining pins or codes good for around May or June?

Thanks!

We booked our flights last night using the 50,000 points we earned signing up for the SW Visa card. All we paid was $15 in security fees! Plus the annual fee of $69 but what a deal! Three flights for only $84.00!

They had a deal a few months ago where if you signed up for the card and spent $1,000 within 3 months, they would credit your account with 50,000 rapid rewards points, which was luckily enough for us to get 3 roundtrip flights. I'm not sure what they are offering right now.

We're all anxiously awaiting... Mousesavers shows that codes through June 14 came out in November, but so far, nothing for 2013 yet. I wish it would come soon though!

I called about 2 weeks ago just to see if there was anything attached to our name and the CM said that they would probably put June codes out in Jan or Feb. UGH.

Is this a pin code?

So I got a thing in the mail today from Disney Destinations. It has prices per night, etc... and then says be sure to mention package code ..... CX5 (not really the code but similar)

Is that a pin code or is that just a generic discount?

We received something yesterday with what sounds like the same code or type of code. It said it was good June 1-30 of 2013 (which is when we're planning to go) but when I called and gave the code I was quoted the same rates I pulled up online myself. :-(

Makes you wonder if reservations are down and they are just trying to drum up traffic - although a deal would bring more reservations!

Not necessarily. I think we are in the minority here on the DISboards. We plan, we obsess, we know what the discount rates are. We check for ourselves. I think there are a lot of people that get a mailing from Disney and just assume it is a good rate. After all, it is what they advertise. I think there are a lot of people who don't do their research and end up paying for more than they should at Disney.

You are so right. But then again, I agonize over getting the best price on most things I buy. It is an obsession!!! One that my DH NEVER complains about.
