Free Southwest Airlines tickets? Here they are

If you’ve been waiting for me to give away those free Southwest Airlines tickets, your wait is over. It’s the last few days of your favorite consumer advocacy site’s spring fundraiser, and I’m ready to send tickets to a few lucky supporters.

Twice a year, we raise money from readers to pay the bills. We’ve almost met our goal. You can qualify for the ticket giveaway now by becoming an Elliott Advocacy supporter at any level.

Whose side are you on? Here’s a hint

One of the most common reader questions we get here is, “Whose side are you on?” It happens when my advocacy team, or I, gently turn down someone’s request for help — something we often do in our Case Dismissed posts.

The answer is: We’re on your side, of course. But we have to say “no” to make our “yeses” as effective as they can be.
