INSIDER SECRET: Southwest doesn’t charge any change or cancellation fees, so when there is a sale it’s a great time to check to see if the price has dropped on Southwest flights you’ve already booked.
Through July 18, 2019, there is a nationwide Southwest sale with one-way flights starting at $40 or 1,864 points + $5.60 in taxes.
The points price of a Southwest award is tied to the cash price, so now is also a great time to book flights for fewer points as well.
