1. Southwest Sale.   Southwest has a fare sale up to Friday, July 20, 2012 for travel from August 20 to December 14, 2012.  There is a  14 day advance purchase requirement and sale prices are not valid for travel on Sunday.

There are black out dates on September 3, November 17, November 20 & 21, and November 24 to November 26, 2012.

Southwest has a revenue based frequent flyer program, so a fare sale means that both cash AND award bookings using points will cost less!

It doesn’t hurt to book your trip using points even if you’re not sure of your plans, because you get the points back in your account without paying a change fee if you cancel the reservation.

If you cancel a paid flight on Southwest, the ticketed passenger gets a credit which can be used for up to 1 year after the booking was made, with no change fee.

If you’ve already booked trips between August 20 and December 14, 2012, it doesn’t hurt to check to see if they are available for less because you can always cancel and rebook your flights for no change fee.

2.  1,000 Free United points.   Travel By Points explains how to earn 1,000 United miles by signing up for a Thanks Again account.

3.   2,500 Free British Airways Points.   The Points Guy explains how a child can get 2,500 points.

4.  500 Free Delta or Aeroplan miles.   View from the Wing shows us how to get 500 free Delta or Aeroplan miles when you sign-up for an Accor hotels account.

I am looking for a SWA promo code. Going from Columbus, Ohio to Orlando in November. Tickets are high right now. Anyone have a code they are not going to use? Thanks!

anyone know how long it takes for the delta miles to post?

About the United deal above…..Well, I guess I’m the last person in the world (other than some others I know locally) who don’t have a cell phone because reception is so horrible out where we live. Is there any way to do this without having a working cell phone number?

Wow, the SouthWest fares have gone up considerably….this is “far” from a sale IMO.

If I book my trip now using cash(or say 10k pts) for a flight say 3 months out and if two weeks down the road the cash & points for the exact same trip goes up, can I cancel that reservation and get points(15k pts) at that point of time?

Just like buy low sell high.

@Manik2012 – Unfortunately, you only get back what you paid for the flight either in the form of a 1 year credit (if cash) or points.
