Use Southwest Points

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.
