Quick Thoughts

It’s hard to tell how useful this promotion will be for travel around July 4 because Southwest hasn’t provided a list of eligible routes. When doing a random search for ORD-LAX on July 5, no discount was offered on any routes. However, when searching BWI-ORF two of the four flights that day have the discount applied:

Southwest BWI-ORF July 5

The nice thing about these types of sales is that they’re valid on both paid and award flights. Here’s the same route and dates when booked with Rapid Rewards points:

Southwest’s website seems to enjoy throwing up error messages with this sale, so be persistent. When clicking the ‘Points’ tab after checking out the cash pricing for the above route, it gave me the following error message:

However, when running the search again it displayed the results correctly. I also got that same error message on every search I was running until I turned my VPN off, so that’s something else to consider if you’re having the same issues.

If this deal works for you, remember that you need to book by tonight (May 17).

Wow for as many emails Southwest sends out on flight and vacation deals that aren’t much of a deal they didn’t send me anything on this one. Pretty disappointed we have travel booked for 7/5 on LUV and might have been able to save some points.


Perfect timing. I have a flight to Sarasota during that time. Just rebooked and got refunded $25.
