On Southwest Airlines, your bags fly free. Whether you are traveling with a hand-me-down vintage suitcase, a Bob the Builder duffel bag, or just a plain old black roller bag, we won’t charge you to check your first OR second normal-sized checked bag. Pull out your calculator—that means you can save up to $120 compared to what other airlines charge for checked luggage. So, what would you do with that extra money on a vacation? Last Monday, we asked our Facebook fans to share photos and how they’d spend that cash! These are our top five favs. Enjoy!
P.S. We’d LUV to hear more stories on what you did on your vacation with the $120 savings, so post your comments below. Happy travels!
Ashley Wojcik Mancini: On our recent trip to Orlando, my luggage money paid for my daughter’s 4th birthday dinner with Cinderella!
Jennifer Cuddeback: On our recent trip from MHT to LAX, my 6-year-old daughter and I were able to take private surfing lessons with our “luggage money.”
Margie Mancini: I’m running 14 marathons around the country this year to raise money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This wouldn’t be possible without the low fares on Southwest Airlines. Thank you SW, for making this journey possible! This is me after marathon #7 in Chicago, August 1st. With the money I’ll save flying SW, I’ll be able to afford the next 7 marathons, and help find a cure for cancer!!! 🐵
Gina Roland Dupree: With the money we saved on our family of 4, we were able to stay an extra day in Colorado and wait for Trail Ridge Road to open, so my kids got to go over the Continental Divide. These Southern kids LOVED all that snow! (and Mom too!)
Susan Carman McGiffert: Southwest’s “Bags fly free” is awesome. We saved the full $120 on our trip to Albany NY from Phoenix to celebrate my sister’s 60th with family and friends. We used the money we saved to take the family out to dinner. You are the best airline bar none!
