Giveaway time.

I like Southwest for many reasons. You always get to fly with two checked bags for free. No other US carrier has that lenient of a domestic baggage policy. Flights booked with enough anticipation (or during frequent sales) can be super cheap, with points as well as cash. They have one of the best and most flexible change and cancellation policies. In general they tend to put customers first more than other US carriers.

This week one lucky reader will win a $200 Southwest gift card. Southwest gift cards are fully transferable and don’t expire.
