Using those Southwest Points for your next get away!
Log into the Southwest site, type in your airport information, dates and how many travelers. For this trip my daughter and I are running in Orlando on the weekend. IF your dates are flexible take a look at the low fare calendar. Often its less points for fly out on a Thursday or return on a Monday.
Select points to see how many points each leg of the trip will cost you. We are traveling on a Thursday and a Monday to save on the cost. Select the flights and you will see this screen next.
Tells you this trip will be 28,800 points and $10 for the security fees. IF you only have enough points for 1 way and you want to pay cash for the other leg just book two separate one way trips. We did this for our Spring Break trip to Mall of America. I often like to book Southwest flights as two separate trips, that way if price drops its easier to rebook.
