Southwest is back with a promo code for 25% off select flights

  • This is valid for bookings made from 8/11 to 8/13
  • This is valid for travel on select flights from 8/25-8/27/23
  • No blackout dates
  • Use promotion code FLY25 at the time of booking

Deals are available through its website. Given the flexibility that Southwest offers from a cancellation perspective, it makes sense to book a trip even if you’re not sure if you can take it in order to take advantage of 40% off. If things don’t improve from a travel standpoint, it will be easy to cancel.

If you don’t have Southwest points, you can still bank a travel credit for a future trip. As a reminder, if Southwest hosts a sale, make sure you check any existing flights you have already purchased. Southwest has no change fees, and if the sale price is lower, you will receive a credit for the difference usable for future Southwest fares. Also, if you change your mind after you buy one of these flights, remember that any fare marketed in the US is free to cancel within 24 hours.

You only have until this Sunday to take advantage of this promo and it needs to be for travel between August 25th through August 27th.

Good for existing flights too

Remember, because of Southwest’s cancellation and change policy, this promo would work even if you already have a Southwest flight booked, as long as it’s within the travel period. With previous sales, I have been able to take flights I’ve already booked, cancel it and rebook it and save over 3,000 Southwest points.

Note that I was not able to go through the normal “change” process because it wouldn’t let me apply the promo code as part of this process. So I just canceled the first flight and rebooked with the promo code for fewer points.
