Blog Giveaway: $400 Southwest Gift Cards!

Don’t forget to follow me on Facebook or Twitter!

Emily and I love Southwest because of the free checked bags, the better service, the ability to save valuable United and American miles for international travel, and many other reasons.

Oh, and let’s not forget our favorite airline perk – the Southwest Companion Pass.  Where else can a companion get unlimited travel – on both points or cash tickets – for up to 2 years?!  Here’s a post on everything you need to know about the Southwest Companion Pass.

The Southwest credit card currently has a 50,000 point sign-up bonus after spending $2,000 within 3 months.  50,000 points can get you up to ~$850 in Southwest flights, which is pretty good for just one credit card.  Even better, the 50,000 point sign-up bonus currently counts towards the Southwest Companion Pass.

I’m very lucky that Million Mile Secrets are the best blog readers, so let’s give away some Southwest gift cards!

    Southwest, how do I love thee? Let me rap the ways!

    I LUV Southwest ‘cuz I always have fun!
    They get me where I’m going when I’m on the run.
    They keep me in line…I like the A, B, C
    When I’m on the ball I get to choose my seat.
    Flight attendants are a jammin’ with a rap so sweet.
    And Southwest is the coolest with NO bag fees!

    1. Flight attendants LUV to have fun and include the passengers! Our last flight’s emergency procedures involved a fun and creative rap. I always listen to the FAs on SW…the others – blah, blah, blah.
    2. Anytime I need to change my flight, even on the Getaways, the customer service agent is helpful and they do it without a CHANGE fee – yay!
    3. NO BAG FEES – woo hoo!!

  2. Great service and no bag fees.

  3. Kyle Kennedy

    I love Southwest because they don’t charge any fees to make changes to a ticket. I have a trip to California coming up and I’ve probably changed my ticket six times, all without any fees!

  4. I love Southwest because of the no baggage fees and family-friendly boarding process. We have two kids and every summer we fly from the east coast (BWI) to San Diego for three weeks to visit my inlaws. We generally have six checked bags (e.g., suitcases of cloth, car seats). With the no baggage fee, Southwest has saves us a ton of money over the years. We can also seat together as a family after Group A, which is super!

  5. I love Southwest because of the peanuts!

  6. I like the companion pass.

  7. We love Southwest because we strongly dislike cancellation and change fees! Southwest enables us to book potential trips in advance when they are on sale with cash or points and if our plans change later, we don’t feel like we donated $150+ for a flight we never took!

  8. I love that they offer two free bags!

  9. While we love their companion pass, we (my wife and I) appreciate the whole package. Pilots and attendants have a sense of humor, they seem eager to make the trip as enjoyable as possible, and — yeah — we fly to awesome places we wouldn’t get to visit using the Companion Pass … Sometimes we don’t get to sit together on flights, and we’ve met some awesome people along the way thanks to the random seating system. Its a cool airline and a cool flying experience, we really like Southwest. Two thumbs way up!! :)

  10. Southwest makes it so easy to use Rapid Rewards points and the staff always makes me smile! <3 them!

  11. Sohail Anwar

    I like Southwest because of the companion pass feature! And Rapid Rewards!

  12. I love southwest because they have great prices to great cities!!!

  13. Thank you Emily & Professor Daraius! Reading your blogs is always the most rewarding in terms of information and giveaways. Me and my wife have learnt so much and yet so much to learn from your posts. Thank you !

  14. dwight brinkley

    Free bags and cheap flights!!

  15. I love Southwest Airlines because it’s like the woman I never had. Always on time, love to make me laugh with the on-board announcements, and always takes my baggage for free!

  16. Here are the reasons we like Southwest:

    1. Seats are spacious as compared to other domestic airlines
    2. No cancellation charges even on the last minute
    3. 2 Free checked-in baggage
    4. Open seating arrangement with no extra charge
    5. Best customer service

  17. hi, i am new reader to your site, and going to apply for 2 southwest cards and use this strategy to get my travel. i am really grateful and will be really thankful if you can choose me to get the giftcards.

    thanks a lot.

  18. The companion pass!

  19. Companion pass

  20. Because the fly MSP TO RSW.

  21. The flexibility to change or cancel reward tickets are soooo good

  22. I love southwest because they have a high frequency on the routes they fly.

  23. ryan mcmenamin

    love southwest because of the cheap domestic flights!

  24. I love southwest due to no fees policy! Book a flight now, change it whenever even when points or price for it drops! Also who doesn’t love their honey roasted peanuts? Yummmmm! Thanks MMS!

  25. I love southwest because other airlines decrease their prices because of SW initiated price wars :).

  26. Love the free luggage

  27. I love southwest because of the companion pass. easily the most valuable airline perk. half off every flight, and two free flights if I use points to book.

  28. A long, long time ago,
    I can still remember when
    airlines used to make me smile.

    And I knew that when I flew somewhere,
    I’d get peanuts and drinks while in the air,
    And I’d be very happy for a while.

    But then the economy turned sour
    And every airline started to scour.
    Bad news on the runways,
    I couldn’t take my hairspray.

    I can’t remember if I fell to my knees
    when I read about the baggage fees
    But something told me don’t despair…
    Southwest Airlines is there!

    I started singing…

    Southwest Airlines is the best!
    They’re friendly and they’re timely
    And they give me free food.
    No baggage fees and no cancellation fees, too,
    Oh Southwest Airlines what would I do without you?
    Oh Southwest Airlines what would I do without you?

  29. Love the LUV…?

  30. I love Southwest because it’s letting a new dad travel with 3 people for the price of 1 with the Companion Pass (babies are free on any airline, to be fair) with free checked luggage, which is invaluable with a baby.

  31. No cancellation fee if booking by points.

  32. If your flights delayed, drinks are on the house!

  33. planejaneLA

    In addition to being a great airline, especially with HQ in my hometown ;), Southwest had no layoffs, no pay cuts, and no-hassle refunds for customers after 9/11 and I believe was the only well-known US airline that did that. I don’t fly Southwest much, but am reading more and am now thinking about diversifying my miles portfolio to include Southwest miles.

  34. 1) Gets you to your destination on time – I have never had a mechanical delay while flying Southwest even though I fly them most often. On the other hand, on the few times when I flew UA and DL, I’ve had a delay and cancellation (both not weather related), respectively.
    2) No change fee.
    3) 2 free checked bags.

  35. The flight attendants actually seem to like their jobs.

  36. Free bags, Friendly Stewardesses, Companion pass, cheap travel. What’s not to like?

  37. I love that there are no change fees and free checked bag if I need it.

  38. I love the free first bag and such a orderly and organized boarding process. Its a truly well oiled machine closly mirroring Ryan. Flying Southwest seems very laid back and thats important on vacation.
    Pricing is very competitive and staff are very friendly!

    Cheers
