Southwest Airlines Is Giving Away Free Vacations Because Sharing Is Caring


Here's a friendly PSA for travelers who like free things: Southwest is giving away vacations.

In honor of their 43rd "birthday", the airline is holding a celebratory sweepstakes. The best part? You don't actually have to buy anything.

Two "grand prize" winners will be selected. One will receive a trip to Tucson, Arizona -- the airline's 43rd destination added to their route map back in 1994. The other will get a trip to the airline's new international destination, Montego Bay, Jamaica. Both sound pretty sweet to us.

And, if you're not one of the two lucky grand prize winners, not all is lost -- 41 folks will win a retro Southwest Airlines hat. So there's that.

Airline giveaways are always fun. Last December, WestJet played secret santa to unsuspecting passengers and produced a viral video that delighted the Internet. After the video hit 200,000 views the airline gave free flights to families in need via their partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities.

You've got until June 30 to enter the Southwest sweepstakes. Ready, set, go!
