    Price the same every fricking day. $211 pp, one way. Flying on Xmas day was $224, but we'll get a free drink, so that knocks off $5 each.

    Milwaukee to LAS, non stop.

    Joe: Already booked for Nov. and Dec? I'm really envious how you (anyone) can book trips so far in advance. We usually go in December and sometimes for Turkey Day too, but probably won't start thinking about either trip until October. (And the only reason October was booked this far out was to use a $400 credit on Delta that was about to expire.) Way to go!

    Both retired, we can do whatever we want and if something did come up, it's SWA so no fee to cancel and rebook.

    We looked at things like Cancun etc, but realize neither of us are lay on the beach and read a book sorts. Vegas works for us.:thumbsup:

    Free food, free rooms and hopefully a win here and there and we're happy.

    We are heading to Seattle again in July. 3rd time and we really do enjoy that city.

    The cheapest available right now from San Jose is $104 each way on the weekend after Thanksgiving. That's when i'll be heading out there. Not going to book anything yet, just going to keep an eye on prices. Last year, i went in early november and it was $69 each way.

    I always book the December trip around now. Free JetBlue ticket. Perfect nonstop flights. Out of Boston 8:30 am. Return 12:30 pm that lands in Boston 8:30 pm. Perfect flights. I book a place holder at Bally's for the 5 nights... Usually $300 all in. Can't wait! Thanks for getting me started.:beer:

    I checked SWA again for our trip for NYE week....2 of us is about 72,000 points.....very high so will keep checking daily for a drop since we only have about 56,000 points now. Geez - I hate waiting....lol. Just want everything in place & secured! Free room / free food (have about $2000 in comps with CET) / 6 free SWA drink tickets..... BUT I want free airfare too...lol!! Glad for you Joe!!!
