As always with Southwest, there are a few important things to keep in mind:
- Your first two bags fly free – this represents a savings of $50 -$100 compared to other airlines.
- Open seating – your place in line is determined by when you check in, so be sure to set a timer for 24 hrs before you fly. If you don’t want to bother with that you can always buy Early Bird Check-Infor $15 each way
- Do you often fly with s a companion? Check out the Southwest Companion Pass. This is easily the best deal in “travel hacking.” You can get it with just two credit card sign up bonuses. It’s saved us thousands of dollars over the years.
