    I just got a text from SWA about early access to their birthday sale for Rapid Rewards members only (which basically is probably everyone that flies SW) but it's only in the app or on mobile until tonight.

    I was able to save 3000 points on one of my flights, so it's worth checking out!

    I was able to cancel and rebook several of my flights to Vegas. Prices were as low as $38.

    @VegasDaytripper, flights out of LAX are as low as $31...book weekly trips and figure out later.

    I'll take a look

    I like BWI airport, but I swear it's the worst when it comes to Southwest sales like this. Maybe it's just the flight times that I am choosing, but I practically never benefit.

    "up to" 50% off. Don't forget those first two key words.

    On the PC, a specific flight was $140, on the phone, the same flight was 220 with a line drawn through it and priced at $110.

    I checked these prices within 30 seconds of each other.

    Of course, I used the phone to book a ticket.

    Amazing!

    Booked a placeholder flight. Only $200 round-trip. That's cheap for me. Normally runs closer to $300 rt.

    Yeah, I knew that. I was pointing out that the price before the promo code being applied was different on the desktop vs. the app.

    These sales usually don't benefit me much, but this one did on at least 4 one-way way flights.
    Winning!!

    Nothing useful for my travels, unfortunately. Thanks for posting it though!

    This is true
    It's only a slight discount from what's normally showing

    But it's still a discount

    I booked about 8 one-way legs, some of them round trip
    For August, Sept, and October

    Southwest is great because you can always cancel and rebook even at the lowest fare class so ...
    Just book first
    Figure it out later

    Don’t forget, when Costco runs the deal on Southwest gift cards, snag them up. I picked up $500 gift cards for $419.99 each. I grabbed four of them last month.
