Can i choose how much of my available travel funds to apply to a new reservation?

New Arrival

I'm trying to understand if SW will force me to use all of my available funds or if I can determine how much of my available funds I would like to use when creating a new reservation?

You choose how much of your travel funds you want to use.

 

If you have $200 in a travel fund, and want to buy a $60 ticket, you'll use $60 of travel funds and have $140 to use in the future.

 

If you have $200 in travel funds, and want to buy a $210 ticket, you'll use all of your travel fund and have to add $10 to buy the tiket.

But you can't apply only $40 of a $200 travel fund towards a $200 flight.

I can see some workarounds where you could creatively make a travel fund of the desired amount. 

Can you elaborate on the scenario further and we can give more targeted advice.
