Lock in Thanksgiving & Christmas flights with Southwest points now

by on Thu May 18, 2017 • No Comment


You can now book Southwest flights through January 7, which means Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are open to booking with your Rapid Rewards points.

Southwest points are special because you can cancel and get your points back with no fees, so it’s easy to book something with your points even if your plans aren’t firm.

That’s a great way to lock in a reasonable price for holiday travel before flights get full.

While traveling the Sunday after Thanksgiving is expensive from the get go, there are lots of reasonable prices for days around then, like these on New York to Chicago….


And these from San Diego to San Francisco…sansfoswnov

This is also a good time to check out Southwest’s new routes to the Caribbean and Central America, like Fort Lauderdale to Punta Cana and San Jose, Costa Rica.


Southwest points are some of the most useful for getting to the Caribbean and Central America for really low prices, and it now serves:

  • Aruba
  • Belize
  • Cabo San Lucas/Los Cabos
  • Cancun
  • Cuba
  • Grand Cayman Island
  • Liberia, Costa Rica
  • Mexico City
  • Montego Bay
  • Nassau, Bahamas
  • Puerto Vallarta
  • Punta Cana
  • San Jose, Costa Rica

It’s also hoping to serve Hawaii from the West Coast, though no word on when that will begin other than the planes it needs to start that service start arriving this fall.
