- Save 20% when booking Southwest award flights and using promo code SAVE20NOW.

- Enter code SAVE20NOW in the promo code box when booking.
- Offer is valid for domestic and international travel.
- The 20% promotion code savings is valid for one-way or round trip Wanna Get Away, Anytime, and Business Select fares booked with Rapid Rewards points from March 29 through March 31, 2022 and flown during the Promotion Period and is applied before taxes and fees.
- Savings are reflected in the price when entering the multiuse code SAVE20NOW in the Promo Code box on Southwest.com and swabiz.com. This discount is only available through Southwest.com and swabiz.com.
- Discount is valid on new reservations only.
- Discount will apply only for dates within the Promotion Period. If one direction of the trip is outside the Promotion Period and one is within the Promotion Period, only the portion of travel falling within the Promotion Period will be discounted.
- Changes made to the itinerary after purchase will eliminate qualifications for this promotion.
- The discount is only valid with the provided promotion code and is not combinable with other promotion codes or fares.
- All reward travel is subject to taxes, fees, and other government or airport-imposed charges of at least $5.60 per one-way trip. Applicable taxes, fees, and other government or airport-imposed charges can vary significantly based on your arrival and departure destination. The payment of any taxes, fees, and other government or airport-imposed charges is the responsibility of the Purchaser and must be paid at the time reward travel is booked with a credit card, travel funds, or Southwest gift card.
- When traveling on reward travel, you will receive all fare product features except for earning Rapid Rewards points.
- Any change in itinerary may result in an increase in points.
- Points bookings are subject to change until ticketed.
- If you cancel your reservation at least ten (10) minutes prior to the scheduled departure of your flight, any remaining unused points will be returned to your Rapid Rewards account.
- Offer is not redeemable for cash, and may not be used in conjunction with other special offers, or toward the purchase of a gift card or previously-booked flight, or change to a previously-booked flight.
- The 20% off discount is not valid on Group Travel, Southwest Vacations, or special fares such as military and government fares.
Saving 20% on Southwest award flights is a great deal, especially because there aren’t any restrictions – it’s valid on both one-way and round trip flights, there aren’t any blackout dates (other than that it’s valid on flights through May 25) and you can book Wanna Get Away, Anytime or Business Select fares.
If you have any existing reservations booked using Southwest Rapid Rewards points, check how much those flights are now pricing out when using the SAVE20NOW promo code. If it’d be cheaper when using the promo code, you can cancel your existing reservation(s) with no penalty and get those points back to immediately rebook using this award sale.
This promotion also makes transferring Chase Ultimate Rewards a more valuable proposition because it’s like a 25% transfer bonus. For example, if a flight would normally require 12,500 Rapid Rewards points, with this sale it’ll cost 10,000 Rapid Rewards Points or 10,000 Ultimate Rewards transferred across. Note that it being a de facto 25% transfer bonus is only during this award sale – you’re not actually receiving more Rapid Rewards points for transferring Ultimate Rewards, you’re simply getting more value from your Ultimate Rewards with Southwest than you normally would.
This award sale is due to run through March 31, but it’d be best to book ASAP. This promotion will likely prove to be very popular, so with people making speculative bookings the number of points required for any given redemption could increase over the next couple of days, negating some of the benefits from this award sale.
Code works fine for me. It will say it does not work if cash pricing is chosen, but works fine with points, as intended.
I just did a search and the promo code worked. Are the flights you’re looking at after May 25? If so, that’ll be why the code isn’t working. If the flights are before May 25, I’m not sure why it wouldn’t be working for you. It doesn’t seem to be targeted because the code worked for me in incognito mode and not logged into a Southwest Rapid Rewards account.
Code doesn’t work
It’s working fine for me. Are you looking at flights before May 25?
It doesn’t make sense to book with points for flights less than $100 right? I was looking at a flight that was $64 or 3k points.
Cheaper flights are when you get even more value by using points. You’d be getting 1.95cpp of value by using points which is more than you’d normally get when redeeming Southwest points (that’s assuming it’s a domestic flight with $5.60 in taxes/fees).
I get that but $64 is a lot easier for me to get than 3k points. Even with 3x on a csr I’d have to spend $1k for 3k points.
Cheaper fares are certainly more affordable, but with Southwest that’s where you get better value when redeeming points.
