And check out Million Mile Secrets contributor Lyn’s post on how to tell if a Southwest sale is worthwhile!
Folks like Southwest sales because when the cash price of a ticket goes down, award ticket prices go down. That’s because Southwest award prices are based on the cash price.
Million Mile Secrets readers love Southwest because every passenger gets 2 free checked bags. That can save lots of money!
Plus, if you have the Southwest Companion Pass, you can take a friend or family member with you for free for up to 2 years! Emily and I consider the Southwest Companion Pass to be the best deal in travel. And earning the Companion Pass is easy!
