Check your Southwest flights!

I was just online looking at our flight info... we leave in 3 weeks! Anyways SW is running a deal right now and the price on our flights dropped (We bought with points). I changed them to the new pricing and I was refunded 14,000 points. That is enough for another flight! I was so excited!

If you didn't use points.... our flight from Providence, RI to Orlando is only $96 each way! It was about $180 each way when I booked in September.

Thanks so much for posting this! I just got 7,000 points back. That saved me from purchasing additional points I needed for a different trip.

My return flights (3 total) went down 1500 each! 4500 points now brings me back up to enough points for a free one-way ticket.

I don't know whats going on, all fights around ours have gone down, but our flight has gone up and not moved. My brother is hoping to change to the later flight but that's the only flight that is going up..I hope it will go down within the next 2 weeks, but we all no that will not happen. He missed getting the same flight as us, he swears because I check it too much that's why the flight went up not down. He said it wont ever go down if I keep checking it. I have to check it, how will I know if it went down if I don't check it.

I logged onto my Southwest account and when looking at your flight info there is a change flight button.... when you change the flight if the points are less than you originally paid the points will be refunded to your account. Or I am sure you can call.

We are right at 13 days out. I am not sure if they dropped just because or maybe the flights went on sale. Just keep checking.

I agree with "keep checking". I checked mine again today and they went down another 600 points each from 2 days ago. We are about 30 days out. Good luck to all!
