Southwest Sale August 2017
You’ll Get 2 Free Checked Bags When You Fly Southwest

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.

Southwest makes it easier than canceling and rebooking to get a lower price. You can change your reservation, select the same flight as the one already reserved, and the difference is issued as a travel credit or refunded via points. One of the many reasons I luv Southwest!
