    I just discovered that our SW flights have dropped by $10/ person. When we first booked the flight, we added EBCI. When I logged in to change the flights, there was the EB symbol beside each of our names. I made the change to the new fare, and now when I log in, the EB symbol isn't there. Did we lose our EBCI when I changed our flights? Should I have done something differently?

    ETA - I just logged in again, and the EB symbols are back!

    Are the flights still opening around 6AM EST. I know last year when I purchased our airfare for our April vacation 2012, it was about 6:20AM.
    Any experience with recent releases of dates.:goodvibes

    Also check the website frequently. When I booked for March 2013 the date was in sept then did not look for a week, when I went to check again it had moved to the next morning which was August 27th.

    I know that their is some discussion if it is cheaper to book right away. I am going spring break from NY-Long Island. My flights in the past month went from $360 round trip to $700 round trip per person. Actually by the end of the day when the flights open it had already gone up a 100 per ticket

    This is a great deal if you are paying with dollars. You can't use this code if you are booking with rapid rewards points though. Bummer. Thanks for posting though - I'm sure it will help lots of people!

    It helped me on the first leg of our trip :goodvibes Probably not going to happen, but if a sale comes up for the return flight date of our trip, I can change to the lower priced fare, as long as it is a different flight, right?

    This is great information! I am looking to book our June trip, first time trying Southwest but can't beat the no baggage fees when there are 4 of us!

    Edit: made a mistake! Just saw that on October 22nd, they will have flights through May 2013. I am dying to book our June trip!

    If I have only the departure leg of our trip booked right now, can I cancel that one and book roundtrip tickets to take advantage of the sale going on now? The one I have right now is Wanna Get Away tickets and I know they aren't "refundable" but wasn't sure if I could just get a "credit" so to speak and apply it to the new tickets.

    Yes just cancel the existing reservation first and then when you book the new one use the original confirmation # in the apply travel funds box. I did this yesterday and it worked fine.

    can someone tell me how long it takes from the reward to go from your credit card into your Rapid Rewards account? I just had my first statement close yesterday and the rewards show on the statement, but nothing when I login to my RR account.

    Unfortunately, DH, DS and I are not going to be able to go to Disney in December like we had hoped. I have already purchased tickets for our flights. I knew that it was going to be iffy going but there were a great price and I know Southwest does not charge to change plans. My question though is how do I go about canceling our flights? They are non-refundable so I understand that we'll have credits to use. They will need to be used within a year of purchase, correct?

    I called Southwest and they canceled it for me and when I rebooked, it asks if you want to apply travel funds, where you would then put in your confirmation number for these flights you are canceling. I believe you can also go to southwest.com and there is an option to cancel a reservation. If you are iffy about it at all, you should just call. It's super easy. I got an agent right away who assured me it was no problem and answered my questions about rebooking.

    You can cancel online and you will receive a Confirmation Number for Travel Funds. Keep the print-out as you will need the Confirmation number to use the funds towards future travel.
    It is very easy to use the funds; I re-booked this morning, entered the Confirmation number and it automatically deducted my original purchase amount.

    Figuring the worst answer can be no: any such animal as an April 2013 code?

    Can you get a credit if the price of your flight drops?
    My dd is flying to Denver for Thanksgiving and the price of one of the flights dropped $50. I know it isn't a whole lot, but $50 bucks is still $50. And she could use it on another flight.

    My husband was just approved for the 50,000 points with SW card. Our family of 5 will be heading back to WDW in August 2013. We each have a RR number and some travel funds left from our trip last month.
    When we go to book our trip how will that work? I assume my husband logs into his account to purchase all of our flights and use the 50,00 points? I read that we will have separate confirmation #'s, but can we book all at once under one reservation? The points should cover most of the cost of our flights, but not all. Do we have to book what we can with points, then do a separate reservation to pay cash for what's not covered? What about our travel funds? Are we able to apply them as well?
    Sorry too many questions! We've traveled SW a few times, but never with points or travel funds, so this is all new. :)
