Sale Fare Terms & Conditions
Sale fares are NOT valid Fridays and Sundays. Here are some of the other terms & conditions:
- Book by August 14, 2014
- Travel August 25, 2014, to December 17, 2014
- Blackout dates: November 25, 2014, to November 26, 2014, and November 29, 2014, to December 1, 2014
- Non-refundable, but may be issued as credit towards another flight if cancelled 10 minutes before departure
- See terms for additional travel date restrictions based upon your departure and destination cities
Check your email to see if you received a targeted offer from Southwest to earn double base points on flights and sale fares.
It’s nice to earn double points, but keep in mind that the extra points will NOT count towards the Southwest Companion Pass.
There are lots of restrictions and blackout dates on the sale fares. So you will NOT be able to take advantage of this for weekend or holidays trips. If you expect to take another Southwest trip in the future, it may be worth booking now because you can cancel up to 10 minutes for departure and still get credit towards another flight.
