FT member chuckworth posted that there is a non-targeted double points promotion for travel April 6 through June 13, 2018. As usual, you will need to register and then re-book any trips during this period to earn the extra credit. See https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/sout...6-13-18-a.html

Southwest has $35 fares between LAX and SFO on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays with less than a week's advance purchase and through most of August. See https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/sout...gh-august.html

FT member Critterlynn posted that Chase Bank (presumably with Southwest's concurrence) has changed its policy on signup bonuses for Rapid Rewards credit cards. Now you are not eligible for the bonus for a new personal card if you have received the bonus for any Southwest personal card, Plus or Premier, in the past 24 months. You can still get a bonus for one personal card and a business card, but these days Chase will ask you for business documentation. See No more double dip on Southwest personal credit card signup bonuses

Southwest plans to release its Thanksgiving and Christmas flights (through January 6, 2019) on May 31. Don't expect the best fares to be available then, but this might be the best opportunity to buy peak flights which will sell out at high fares.

We expect to see Southwest's anniversary sale Tuesday through Thursday approximately the second week of June. Based on past years travel dates will be in the Fall, except Fridays and Sundays and around Thanksgiving.
