A deal for the weekend: 25% off Southwest points bookings


Before you sign off for the weekend, know that Southwest Airlines is offering 25% off flights across its network for travel through September.

The one catch to keep in mind is that this discount only applies to flights booked with Southwest Rapid Rewards points.

Deal basics


Airline: Southwest
Routes: Valid for travel across the Southwest network
How to book: Directly
with the airline using the promo code “SAVE25NOW”
Travel dates: April 15-Sept. 30

Blackout dates: May 23-24 and 27; July 7, 14, 21 and 28

Fares purchased through this sale are limited based on availability. They apply to nonstop travel when available or a single connecting service. The discount does not apply to $5.60 in taxes and fees each way.

Sample flights

Because Southwest does not generally publish its sale routes, the quickest way to search this deal is by using its Low Fare Calendar to search your desired route with the promo code “SAVE25NOW” added.


For example, you could book a round trip from Chicago’s Midway International Airport (MDW) to San Diego International Airport (SAN) in August for 26,160 Rapid Reward points plus the aforementioned $11.20 in taxes and fees. For this particular booking, you could save 8,720 points through this sale.

Sale fares are available for Wanna Get Way and Wanna Get Away Plus fares, which allow travelers to bring two free checked bags and two carry-on items. These fare types are cancelable up to 10 minutes before departure for free. Wanna Get Away fares that are canceled will receive a flight credit in lieu of a refund; they also include free inflight entertainment and messaging.

This sale includes flights across the Southwest network for travel through September. Search your desired routes for possible sale fares up to 30% off.
