UPDATE: I booked a flight using my LUV Voucher and canceled. At first the funds were set to expire on the same date as the original voucher's, but checking again today they expiration date has been updated to 2022. In conclusion: you can extend a LUV Voucher to 2022 by purchasing a flight and canceling, thus receiving travel funds. The extension won't happen instantly (may take up to 5 business days). Note that you won't be able to use travel funds to purchase for another person as with LUV Vouchers. As a side note, seems like a fairly big loophole. Not sure how long this technique will be viable.

Hi Southwest Peeps, I'm in a bit of a conundrum; I received a LUV Voucher with the intent on using sometime this summer–that was until Covid became a reality. My expiration is set in August, and unlike Travel Funds, Southwest is not extending the expiration date of LUV Vouchers sadly (confirmed with an agent). I have no intension of using this voucher by August, especially given the current situation. I was wondering could I purchase a flight using my voucher, then cancel, thus converting the LUV Voucher into a travel fund that would expire in 2022 as per their policy? I realize it would be locked into my name, but this way I wouldn't outright forfeit the amount. If anyone has confirmed that this is possible, that would be great, as I don't want to make a false assumption and lose the entirety of my funds. Cheers
