    Just rebooked today on the same flights we already had booked in April. Both flights dropped by $20 each, for a total savings of $80 in future flight credits.

    In our case they'll be good until 12/2013. I have a feeling we'll use them.:wink2:

    OK, I know not huge, but still a savings!:thumbsup: It pays to check SWA almost daily.

    Joe ....

    Are you talking about your upcoming Dec. flights, which you originally bought back in April, and have rebooked ??? If that is the case, all left-over credit funds attached to your SWA re-bookings will have an expiration in April of 2013 ... one year from the original purchase. And, you must actually fly by that expiration date.

    Back on August 27, 2012, I booked our SWA flights for April 2013. but then, in mid-November, I rebooked those April flights for a savings credit of $94. And, I now have to use those funds, and actually fly, no later than Aug. 27, 2013.

    No, I rebooked our Christmas trip taking advantage of the SWA Cyber Monday sale ($100 MKE to Vegas ) and ended up with $215 in credits. I used those credits to book an April trip and that is the one that just dropped $20 on both flights for another $80 in credits to be used before 12/2013.

    So, two separate credits. The December credit will expire end of April, but the original April booking and $80 credit is good until next December. I hope that makes sense.

    OK, Joe ... gotcha.
    I was just trying to clarify your situation (and ours), mainly for other SWA customers out there, who may not quite understand how that 1-year window applies to SWA credit funds.

    P.S. -- What are your April dates ? We will be there April 9-16, most probably at the Cal and MSS.

    When you rebook do you get to keep the early-bird check in?
