It did work. This is what I had to do.
I Had to make a rapid rewards account for the friend whose ticket was being canceled. I then pull up her ticket on her new account via the reservation number, and canceled it. Through her new account we then just looked up a random one way ticket that had a price the same prices as the credit($10 more actually) under wanna get away plus, when you go to check out you’ll get the option to use a credit, you pull up the credit using the reservation number from the original canceled flight number. Once you enter that number, it’ll apply the credit amount to the ticket cost so you can make that reservation. Once it was made(make sure it is get away PLUS) I was able to immediately cancel it and got the credit again, now transferable. Then I was able to use the friend now going RR account number to transfer the credit for the canceled flight to her. She then on her account had a credit for the total of the new ticket I had canceled.

Thank you! This is exactly the kind of answer I was looking for. Do you know if the credit is immediately available to use as soon as you cancel? I’m hoping to get this all done today and the new ticket booked before the price goes up as we are just over a week away from departure say

Hello everyone. I purchased four tickets for myself and three friends for a trip in less than two weeks from now. One of the friends moms ended up having an accident that required her to have major surgery on her arm, because of this that friend no longer has someone to watch her kids for our trip and she had to cancel out. I have another friend interested in taking her place, however, The tickets I bought for us are wanna get away. Now I’ve read other posts where people have said to cancel the flight for credit, then use the credit to purchase a ticket with get way plus to get the transferable credit to transfer to the other person. My problem is that to either upgrade or just purchase a new ticket for our flight with plus will cost an extra $200. What I’m wondering is, can I cancel the original flight and get the credit, then just find any other flight available from southwest going anywhere that cost the same price as the credit, (like say just a one way ticket priced the amount of my credit) buy that ticket with the get away plus, then cancel right away to get the transferable credit? The friend we want to transfer to already has credit on her account for another canceled flight, the credit she already has plus credit from this flight is enough for her to a buy a ticket for herself on our flight, that is why I don’t want pay $200 more, and then have an extra $200 worth of credit sitting there or sent to her. Thanks in advanced.
