Blog Giveaway 400 In Southwest Gift Cards

Wouldn’t You LUV to Win a Southwest Gift Card?

You can redeem Southwest gift cards for flights on Southwest.  And the gift cards never expire.  However, they can NOT be used towards inflight purchases, rental cars, and vacation packages.

Southwest recently changed their award pricing, but you can still get great deals!  Especially if you have the Southwest Companion Pass, which lets a friend or family member fly with you for (almost) free for up to 2 years!

The Southwest Companion Pass has made it easy for us to visit friends and family across the US.  For example, when we flew to New York for Emily’s birthday and met up with my mom.

How to Enter:

1.   Leave a Comment 

Please leave ONE comment telling me who is or who would be your Southwest Companion and why.

I’ll pick 1 commenter who will win a $200 Southwest gift card after the drawing closes at 9:00 pm Central Time on Saturday, April 25, 2015 (today).

2.   Tweet

Follow Million Mile Secrets on twitter, and tweet ONCE to @MilMileSecrets and tell me who is or who would be your Southwest companion and why.  You have to follow @MilMileSecrets to be eligible.

Don’t forget to include the hashtag “#MMSSWGiveaway”

I’ll pick 1 tweeter who will win another $200 Southwest gift card after the drawing closes at 9:00 pm Central Time on April 25, 2015 (today).

Good luck!

Fine Print:  The prizes are worth up to $400.  I make the final determinations for the giveaway and there’s no appeal in the Million Mile Court.  I’m not receiving compensation from Southwest and I’m giving away Southwest gift cards, so please don’t make this hard for me!
