All you need to do is ask.
"Prior to general boarding, preboarding is available for Customers who have specific seating needs to accommodate a disability, and/or need assistance in boarding the aircraft, and/or need to stow an assistive device. If you have a disability and require preboarding, you should request a Preboarding Document from the Customer Service Agent at your departure gate."
"The Preboarding Document serves as notification to our Operations (Boarding) Agent that you need to preboard. It's important to keep in mind those Customers who preboard may not occupy a seat on the emergency exit rows. Customers who have any other special needs related to boarding should speak with the Customer Service Agent at your departure gate."
"We realize that some Customers with disabilities require the assistance of the individuals they are traveling with, and we will allow a travel companion to act as an "attendant" and preboard with a Customer with a disability. In most cases, the Customer requires assistance from only one other person, and any additional family members or friends are asked to board with their assigned group. However, if a Customer needs assistance from more than one family member, then the Customer should be allowed the additional help."
You could try calling reservations and they should be able to look up your canceled flight confirmation number if you provide them with your credit card number on the phone feel free to call them at 1800-435-9792 and if they can't help you or are unable to find it I would call customer relations at 855-234-4654 and they will be able to help you!
hope this helps
If you aren't checking bags then you can use the self-service kiosks to print a boarding pass, or print at home, or mobile app. This would apply whether you used Early Bird or not.
Your question about gate check I'd have to defer. (I'm A-List and haven't ever had to gate check any regular luggage on Southwest, and before that I've always taken advantage of the two free checked bags instead of carrying on.) That said, since everyone gets two free checked bags, I think Southwest has a lower rate of gate checking than other airlines in general.
With Early Bird you should end up in the late A-group or early B-group and I would expect to have plenty of space for one carry on in the overhead bins at that time. I wouldn't be too nervous about that unless I was in the second C group.
Print your boarding pass at home and if it has an A, B or C and number you can go straight to the gate thats it. If you have to check your bag on the plane, they will give you a claim ticket and you pick it up at baggage claim.
Southwest in general with the fleet of 737 aircraft can handle carryon luggage that other airlines also accept.
The reverse isn't true if you end up on a regional jet on one of the other carriers that has tiny overhead bins.
You can check the SWA booking website by clicking on the flight information to see if it is scheduled to be a 737-700 or 737-800...these have ample overhead bin sizes, especially the 800's so if you are near the limit you should still be fine.
Don't sit in the front rows when you board, the overhead bins at the front of the aircraft are slightly reduced size compared to the rest.
Once the $2,000 spend threshold is met, it triggers the bonus points. However, the bonus points will not post to your Chase account until the statement cycle date. After that, it can take up to 30 days for the points to show up in your Rapid Rewards Account.
You must use all points to purchase a ticket, you can't use some of your points and pay the balance in cash. When you don't have enough points for a round trip its best to purchase two one ways. Use points for one and pay cash for the other. You don't have to redeem points, all you do is when searching a flight is click on "show in points" and that will automatically use your points in your account.
