I’ve done a couple posts in the past about our flying secrets, but I have a little bit more info today to share with you!
It’s far from a secret that we love a good getaway around here! On our single-income budget you won’t find us going anywhere too fancy, but we truly enjoy zipping around the country seeing family and friends when we can. Having our Southwest credit card has helped tremendously; We haven’t paid for a flight for any of us in well over a year!
- I’ve found flights on Southwest for as little at 4,500 points each way. With most (if not all) other airlines, one-way flights start at 12,500 points.
- Since I get one point (two points if you make purchases through Southwest.com) for every one dollar I spend, I can get a round-trip ticket for free on Southwest after spending just $9,000.
- In order to get a free round-trip ticket on any other major airline, you have to spend upwards of $25,000 (unless you have a different reward card that offers 2x/$1 – there’s a couple I know of). Hoping this makes sense!
