25% Off Southwest Paid And Award Holiday Flights Booked By Wednesday Night

Southwest Airlines is offering a 25% discount on tickets booked by December 7 for travel December 24-25 and December 31, 2022 and January 1, 2023. These are the Saturdays and Sundays of holiday weekend, and generally less-traveled days since many people will be taking off on Friday and Monday. Use promotion code HOLIDAY25 to get the discount.

You’ll see a ‘strike-through’ of the original fare on eligible flights. Not all flights will have discountable inventory.

Two key points:

  • Since Southwest awards can be cancelled with points redeposited with no fee, you can make speculative redemption bookings to take advantage of this offer.

  • If you have existing tickets you want to reprice, check the new price and then cancel/rebook.

Seeing Southwest make a move to try to fill seats this late in the game suggests that these may actually be good and less stressful days to travel.

  1. Prior to the sale Southwest raised the fare in points by 8000 points on the 24 th one way
    When I entered the code it said we are sold out of the sale fare and some other potential reason for no discounts!
    Slightly suspicious imho

  2. Even with promotions, my current ticket on 24-31 flights are still cheaper by $75-100. I bought them in … July. Some sale.
