We have never flown during the Christmas holiday season. Several friends / family decided this would be the year to go to LV for NYE.......well....airfare prices are insane! Hubby has over 50,000 SWA points which advertises "2 Free Flights" but scratch that....NOT during the holidays. (we have had many free flights with points - always in March & August which is our usual times to go to LV) Just finished transferring my points to his account and had to buy an additional 15,500 just to cover this trip. Oh well....just an additional $500 expense we were not planning on BUT....we will be in LV for NYE...... YEAH!!!
