    How do you get these? Frequent flier? Points? I feel so cheap when I consider bringing a mini on the plane with me. Now I feel cheap for asking how to get a free drink.

    I just got a valentines day luv card from southwest with a bunch of drink tickets in it. I think you get drink tickets for every so many paid flights, special occasions like valentines day, or on the anniversary of rapid rewards membership or credit card membership. I have the rapid reward credit card and my wife spends so much on it I haven't paid for a flight to Vegas in years. I think the credit card people sent the valentines day card, it had a thanks for using the card angle to it.

    We got the Valentine's card with 4 tickets in it. Since we head out Saturday, the timing is perfect!

    It is possible these were just a special mailing. Normally southwest sends them out after you do 16 one-way paid flights. Flights paid with points I do not believe count.

    Don't feel that way!:nono: My wife brings 2 mini bottles each time we fly. Never a TSA problem. Be discrete on the plane and never a problem there either.

    I like a wine when we fly, so I can't bring those on. The mini wine bottles contain too many ounces for TSA.

    I see there is a coupon swap forum on the site so I may try my hand at that first!

    I was very pleasantly surprised by my Valentines gift from them. I miss getting them. I use to get four coupons every time I got a flight voucher. And I would get one of those every month. I would take trips with 16 golf buddies and we still couldn't use up all the drink tickets. sigh.
    I wish you could use points to buy drink tickets. I don't know why they won't do that.

    Last time I got a cocktail on SWA they didn't even charge me for it :thumbsup:

    If you have a rewards card with them, they just mail them to you once in a while.

    My wife just got the same thing in yesterday's mail. Hopefully, I will also be getting a similar mailing as well ... since we each have the SWA-Visa card, and we fly the exact same flights during the year.

    Have never received a ticket yet, I've been flying off the points from the credit card though, I guess you have to actually buy a ticket to get one.:wink2:

    I guess, but when it first changed over, I called about the drink tickets. They said, and I clarified, that it was based on flights taken, not flights purchased. I have flown maybe eight times since the change and still have not gotten any tickets for it though.
