And be sure to read Million Mile Secrets contributor Lyn’s post on how to tell if a Southwest sale is worthwhile!
The Million Mile Secrets team likes Southwest sales because when the cash price of a ticket goes down, the award price goes down, too! That’s because Southwest award prices are tied to the cash price.
Plus, every Southwest passenger gets 2 free checked bags. That can save lots of money!
And if you have the Southwest Companion Pass, you can take a travel buddy 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 you can easily earn the Companion Pass by opening a couple of Chase Southwest credit cards.
