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.
