Do you think at this point, it would be prudent to redeem for any gift card, since the future of air travel is uncertain due to the pandemic? Once all the supply of gift cars have been redeemed, will Southwest restock?
Interesting.

WN probably finally realized what I posted about here long ago, that when owners of God knows how many billions of points decided to cash them in en masse, they’d have a serious problem.

It’s a $20B revenue company (or was). 6 ppd on WGA fares plus however many they sell to Chase, plus others, is a LOT of points.
