Good morning everyone, I hope your weekend is going well. On Friday, I was looking at my existing Southwest Airlines reservations and found a flight that went down by $45. My weekly routine is to check all my existing Southwest Airlines flights every Tuesday morning – that is when Southwest Airlines sends out emails regarding airfare sales. During my most recent flight rebooking, I noticed that the rebooking process got a (much needed) face lift. Southwest Airlines is doing some Spring cleaning, because they recently updated their (previously broken) gift card balance checker. For reference, here is what the old rebooking process looked like. To get started, click on the Change / Cancel tab on the homepage, then enter your confirmation number, first name, last name, and click the Search button.
If you want to rebook the same exact flight, then keep everything the same and click the Select New Flights button. If you want to change to a different flight, change the search criteria and click the Select New Flights button.
Then select the flight you want. I really like that you can see if the flight costs more or less than what you originally booked. In this example, I can rebook the 6:45am flight and save $45.
Then click the orange Continue button at the bottom of the page.
Review the flight details and make sure you are booking the correct flight. Then click the Continue button.
Enter your email address and click the Change Flight button to complete your rebooking.
Congratulations, you just rebooked your flight and saved money! Not bad for a few minutes of work. Make sure to save your travel funds confirmation number for use on your next Southwest Airlines flight. To view your travel funds balance, click the link in the Reconcile Summary.
In the travel funds section, enter your first name, last name, confirmation number, and then click the Check Now button. You can view up to 4 different travel funds at the same time.
Make sure you save the confirmation number, expiration date of the travel funds, and the amount of the travel funds. You can use these travel funds to pay for your next Southwest Airlines flight.
If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
