Hello, I love chat lines.
I am planning a trip to Oakland, CA, from BWI airport for a family function on Saturday, January 4, 2014.. (I am a preparer). When would recommend the best time to buy my tickets? I realized this date is around the holiday time and this is just March, but I have to purchase 3 tickets.

Southwest opens up their schedules about 6 to 8 months prior to the Flight date so check around that time. for the best prices as well as availability. This time Of the year between Christmas and second week of January can be very busy so do make sure you get a ticket Before it sells out. Have safe travels!

Also, when you do purchase your flights, you can always check back and if you see a lower fare down the road, you can make a change to your reservation as long as there are 3 seats available for that price. Each passenger will then get a travel fund (credit) for the difference to be used for future travel within one year of the original purchase date.
I hope this information helps
