I recently booked some flights for later this month. Can I cancel those reservations and rebook with the credit today to take advantage of this offer? I don't see anything in the T&C that woudl prevent this, but thought I'd get a second opinion. Thanks.

Got this today on FB as well. Really tempted to book a quick morning trip from DAL-TUL for $39 each way. ($99.40 with tax) I'd leave at 9:10, get to TUL at 10:10, leave TUL at 11:00 and be back at DAL at 12:00.

Not a bad deal to get 6 credits for less than 3 hours worth of work.

No problem at all. That's exactly what I intend to do if I can get the same fare.

Getting close to mileage-run territory, a rare occurrence for WN. Some of the alleged "as low as $59" fares are mythical for the entire month. MDW-CLE is $81 one-way until month-end, then drops to $59 for January. So nothing fabulous there.

Wonder if this will stack on the DEN or PHL promos expiring 12/15? Check those terms.

What is the cheapest city-pair nationwide for this deal?

Have some upcoming travel on $59 fares ($69.70 all-in). The same or similar flights, if booked today, feature $97 fares ($107.70 all-in). That's a $38 difference. $19 per extra credit. It's close, but it doesn't seem worth the extra cost.

I have a credit for $32.70 which expires on December 7th, incidentally. I don't think I'll be able to make use of it. If anybody else can make use of it, please send me a PM.

Thanks so much for sharing the link; I never "Like" on Facebook because it usually shows up in your status or on your friends' news pages, but this is a very valuable promotion.

What would happen if I book today for a flight this month, then alter the reservation at some point before the trip? Would that invalidate the promotion credit? Not that I plan to do that, just a what if.

My guess: if you travel in Dec and the original booking date for the PNR is Dec 1, you will get 3 credits.

With three times credit, I thought that it is six credits when you travel roundtrip

Is there some extra bonus I am missing to get 12?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if the RT involves a connection each way, wouldn't that give the 12 credits?
