Never flown on Southwest but I booked a Southwest flight to Chicago in February of this year and then rebooked at a lower price. I had to cancel the trip due to Covid. I couldn't get a refund on my credit card but I have two credits for future travel on Southwest. One credit expires in 2022 but one credit cancels in February of 2021. I don't want to travel anytime in the near future but don't want to lose the credit that expires in 3 months.

If I book another Southwest flight to use my expiring credit and then cancel, will I get an extension on the credit or will I lose it in February 2021?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

It probably expires in Sep 2022, most credits with SWA will. You can call the airline and ask why not and they just might extend it for you if it's not already extended.

I believe you can log in and convert it to miles which last longer. That option expires Dec 1 I think. So in the future you could book a flight, or a round trip maybe, with miles. On Southwest miles are just a straight proportion of the ticket price so using miles or points is pretty easy and no "advantage" using one or the other. You also, using separate reservations, could use points one direction and dollars the other. Very flexible!

Post your SWA questions on FlyerTalk. It is a much larger forum and dedicated to airline questions.
