    Oh wow that's great, so how does it work? Once you purchase, you can rebook again and again as the price goes down?

    Best budget airline, most flights to vegas, and there's a hell of a deal with their credit card offer. 50,000 miles for a new sign up. That's about over $600 in miles.

    If you pay with points, the difference goes back into your point balance total. If you paid cash and it goes down, you simply rebook the same flights at the lower price and they provide you a credit for the difference for a future flight. That credit must be used within one year of the original booking date.

    I rebooked my sept flight 3 times, and for two people it was 24,000 points total round trip from OKC. It was $99 getting there and $89 coming home each if i would have paid cash. SWA is the best

    I was booked for a flight to Fort Lauderdale and the trip down went from 9600 to 4500 points. Saved a lot on my three tickets.

    I checked on prices for for Vegas for NYE and they were the same they have been for the past two months. I decided to book anyway. Today they are up 5000 points for the trip out so I am glad I got them yesterday.

    We have a companion pass that runs out this year. I am going to miss it until I can earn another one early next year.
