Our flight on the way there was over booked. They offered the price you payed for your ticket plus $300 towards anywhere SW travels. We would have taken it but we were meeting friends at Be Our Guest for dinner. That ressie was too hard to get to take the chance of missing lol

For the past 10 years, we've been flexible with our vacation dates, booking last minute with Southwest seat sales and Ding specials out of Buffalo. With an Annual Disney Park Pass and a Tables in Wonderland card, we would travel 4 times a year, sometimes just over the weekends to celebrate a birthday party. Discounted Southwest flights have been $34, $49, $59, and $69. We even tried Spirit Air out of Detroit for $25 when there were no carry on bag charges!

Over the past 2 years, we've waited for Southwest's heavily discounted dates were they only offered 5 days to choose from. Also, we've used the one day only discount codes they emailed us. More recently, we're taking advantage of Southwest's Rapid Rewards program by accumulating points in various ways and topping up the lack of points with cash. Being flexible has it's advantages. I feel so bad for my friends who are Teachers...

It sure does pay to be flexible. Unfortunately we're now in a place where we have very set vacation weeks to choose from and need to start the vacation on Friday or Saturday to maximize our time. We used to be able to fly out midweek and that makes a huge difference in price. If you need to leave on a Saturday and come back on a Sunday it really jumps the prices.
