Lyn writes about flying on Southwest on her GotoTravelGal.com blog and offers a free step-by-step guide to show you how to earn the Southwest Companion Pass, which Emily and I believe is the BEST deal in travel and lets one person fly nearly free with you for up to 2 years.
I’ve asked her to give our readers a basic review of how Southwest points work and how to use them for free travel.
Lyn: Southwest is my favorite frequent flyer program for many reasons. Not the least of which is the fact that using their program, my family has flown nearly free for the past year and a half, visiting destinations like New York City; Las Vegas; Marco Island, Florida; San Diego; Orlando; and more!

A couple of months ago, I told you that Alaska Airlines would be adding Condor to their list of partner airlines.
And now, via Travel Codex, you can use your Alaska Airlines miles for flights on Condor! I like this news, because more options for using miles & points is always a good thing! And it’s nice for folks who already fly Condor, because it does NOT have its own loyalty program.
Fly To Many Destinations Across the Atlantic With Condor, Like Portugal!
I’ll share what you need to know about redeeming Alaska Airlines miles on Condor.
The time of year you choose to vacation usually affects the prices you’ll pay and your travel experience.
Busy seasons (like holidays) can attract lots of tourists to popular destinations. I typically prefer traveling in low or shoulder season when things are quieter and cheaper!
But some folks would rather book a getaway during peak season to enjoy the best weather. Or because it works best for family vacation schedules.
Emily Traveled to the British Virgin Islands During High Season Because of the Ideal Weather. And She Booked a Marriott Award Stay, Which Costs the Same Amount of Points Regardless of Season!
I’ll share the pros and cons of traveling to a destination during its high season, shoulder season, and off-season.
