The limit is three forms of payment per passenger per resevation.

I just want to make sure I am clear before I go purchasing a bunch of gift cards. If it is per person, per reservation, does that mean a total of 3 when I checkout with tickets for my party of 4, or does that mean I can use 12 tickets (3 per person). Thanks!

I meant 12 gift cards. Oops!

You can click on the "gear" icon and edit your post to say "gift cards" instead of "tickets" - anyway, hopefully the experts weigh back in.

 

 

I'm a little mixed up where some of the requirements are per person, and some are per reservation. 12 gift cards seems excessive for the programmer to allow, but the wording on the one bullet was clear that it is three per person.

 

May we ask why you want 12 gift cards instead of 4, or could each person book their own travel where the combination of all into one total wouldn't matter? i.e. each one uses their three in separate transactions?

 

I don't think you can make a "test" reservation and see how far you get, you probably can't add a second gift card until the first one is accepted.

I was wondering the same thing!  3 total or 3 per person.  Did you ever find out?

It's three total forms of payment per passenger, so three gift cards total, or two cards plus a credit card or travel funds if the gift cards aren't enough to cover the balance.

 

From the website:

 

Southwest gift cards – A maximum of three Southwest gift cards can be applied per passenger on each reservation.  If your purchase exceeds the amount available on the three Southwest gift cards, you will only be allowed to use two Southwest gift cards and another form of payment will be required for the difference.

Hopefully this thread isn't too old.

 

Sorry, I'm still not clear on this.  If I book 4 passengers on one reservation, can I use 11 gift cards and a credit card to pay?

 

Why would I do that? Because I have 100 and 200$ giftcards purchased before i knew there was a limit...

 

Thanks,  bob

Morning, Bob

 

There's lots of conflicting information in the posts above yours. So I'm not sure of the answer.

I know I've been able to use 2 gift cards and a credit card in making a reservafion before.

 

I can't believe the computer system knows it should allow  a max of 3 payment methods for a 1 passenger reservation and allow  a max of 12 for a 4 passenger reservation, but I've never tried it.  

 

I'd suggest you just give it a try. If there's  a limit, the system will let you know. I f you run into a limit, you could book two one way trips ins tead of a round trip  to up the number of gift cards you can use.
