Can you rebook?

Yes, if you see a ticket that is now cheaper than it was when you booked, Southwest has a no change free, no cancel fee policy so you could cancel, get a credit, and then rebook at the lower rate.

Overall

Southwest had a well publicized bad end to 2022, and then 2023 they offered a ton of incentives to help get status and lure customers in again – it appears this trend is continuing in 2024 as we’ve seen multiple Companion Pass Promos, flash sales, etc.

Main Cast: 

Cards that earn flexible points and should be used on the bulk of your purchases.

Supporting Cast:

Cards that earn fixed points in the currency of the airline/hotel and can not be transferred at attractive rates. These cards yield benefits that make it worth keeping, but not necessarily worth putting a lot of your everyday spend on. 

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® is exceptional starter card and offers transferrable Ultimate Rewards, and pairs well with other Chase cards.

If you carry this card alongside Chase’s cashback cards like the Chase Freedom Flex℠and Chase Freedom Unlimited® or the business versions: Ink Business Cash® , Ink Business Unlimited® you can combine the points into Preferred account and transfer into hotel and airline partners

Annual fee is quite low at $95 a year + you get a 10% anniversary bonus on points + $50 hotel credit in Chase travel.

    Southwest sales are one of those book first, ask questions later opportunities. The airline makes it so easy to cancel and flight credits never expire.  The Wanna Get Away Plus flight credits are transferable too.  The Chase Southwest Priority card helps further maximize these sales because that card gives a $75 flight credit which can further stack with Chase offers for 5% or 10% off Southwest flights like, at least on my card account, is currently offered.

    If this sounds good, consider applying for that or another Chase Southwest Visa card.  If you do, I’d greatly appreciate you using my referral code.  Thanks!

    If not one of the Chase Southwest cards, consider the Amex Platinum, Amex Business Platinum, or Amex Hilton Aspire.  I’ve read that those cards’ incidental flight credits of $200, $200, and $250, respectively, provide reimbursement for Southwest flights under $100, you just need to select Southwest as your preferred airline.
