Travel Benefits. Southwest offers no change fees, no blackout dates, no points expiration, unlimited reward seats and your first and 2nd bags checked for free!
Gift Cards. If you’d rather redeem your points for gift cards (which is what I plan to do since Southwest doesn’t fly the routes we need), some merchants include: Amazon.com, Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Wal-mart.
