Update: Use promo code SAVE50. Valid for bookings made 6/15-6/17 for travel from 9/15/21 to 11/3/21. Note that this discount is valid on paid and award flights!

Southwest Airlines is offering 50% off flights booked 6/15/21-6/17/21. This is an amazing deal in many instances with a number of routes I’ve checked pricing below normal. Furthermore, the prices of Anytime and Business Select fares are also 50% off. These discounts only apply to cash fares (update: The discount now words on award tickets when you use promo code SAVE50), but since Anytime and Business Select fares are fully refundable, there is little risk in planning a speculative trip with those fares.

As you can see in the screen shot above, the 50% off deal applies in all fare classes, not just for Wanna Get Away fares. In some cases, the difference in price between the Wanna Get Away fare and the Business Select fare is less than the typical cost of A1-A15 boarding — and keep in mind that you also earn more Rapid Rewards points per dollar spent, get priority check-in and security where available, etc. If you don’t care about A1-15 boarding, an Anytime fare is fully refundable and gets you advantages like same-day confirmed changes without a fare difference and same-day standby.

Again, the discount here is valid on both paid and award tickets, which makes for some awesome deals.

If you currently have flights booked on Southwest, you should start searching immediately for opportunities to rebook at reduced fares. Keep in mind that the system may not have updated all routes and dates yet, though most of my searches showed the discount for flights into November (December flights aren’t discounted on the searches I’ve conducted so far — not sure if that will update later or if the peak holiday period is excluded).

Overall, there are plenty of great deals here for those who can plan travel through the end of the year. This could also be a great way to use up various credit card travel credits given the cheap prices of flights.

It’s through the 17th. Article states “today only.”


Good !! I hope correct and no need for the code too. I checked my next months flt. it’s way up.

I wonder why now a Deal ??

If u need a renewal passport it’s running 3 to 4 months and $100 AFTER they open the letter.My fast Renewal $170 and 4 to 6 weeks after they opened the overnite letter which was 10 days later !!! Check online that was their response on mine .


I have some Southwest travel bank credits that I would like to use up before they expire (in December). Is there any downside to using those credits to make some speculative bookings? I.e. if I end up canceling those tickets will I just receive the travel credits back and the expiration date won’t change?


I believe the only downside is that if you use multiple travel credits on the same flight, then when you cancel that flight the combined travel credit will reflect the earliest expiration date.

So if you have a $50 travel credit expiring in December and a $100 travel credit expiring next March and you use both for a single itinerary, then when you cancel you will end up with a $150 travel credit that expires in December.


Yes I did that and for like pocket change I LOST good tickets .Confusing it is .
Good Find Nick,your Uncle still open ??

My Buddy got Lucky changed SIX tickets 2 mins ago after an Hour wait !!!

Ahh yes I do remember hearing about that in the past. Thanks for reminding me!


Business select has increased points earning so that is a factor for some.


“Use promotion code SAVE50 from 6/15-6/17 for travel 9/15-11/3/21.” Only for certain dates in the fall.
