If you’ve been wanting to book a Southwest Airlines flight for spring or summer travel and have some Rapid Rewards points to use, you can save 25% on the cost of your award flight. But you’ll have to act quickly, as the award flights must be booked by Monday, April 15.

Southwest has a loyal following of flyers thanks to customer-friendly perks like free checked bags and a flexible change and cancellation policy. Now, you can get all those benefits for less, thanks to this promotion.

Let’s take a look at all you need to know.

Southwest’s Spring Promotion — Save 25% on Award Flights

This latest Southwest promotion is pretty straightforward — you can save 25% on award flights when you book by April 15, for travel from now until September 30. You must use promo code SAVE25NOW.

If you’d like to take advantage of this discount, simply follow these terms:

  • Valid on flights in the continental U.S. only
  • Valid on Wanna Get Away and Wanna Get Away Plus fares only
  • Book between April 12, 2024, and April 15, 2024
  • Travel between April 12, 2024, and September 30, 2024
  • Use code SAVE25NOW in the promo code box when booking
  • Blackout dates are May 23, May 24, May 27, July 7, July 14, July 21, and July 28

It’s worth noting that Southwest Rapid Rewards is a revenue-based rewards program, which means that award rates are aligned very closely with cash fares. All of this means that this promotion represents a fairly rare opportunity to redeem Rapid Rewards points at an outsized value.

If you have flights in mind that you’d like to book, you can do so directly with the airline on this Southwest promotion page.

This could also be a great time to check your existing award bookings with Southwest. You can cancel and rebook them with the 25% discount if that would be cheaper than what you originally paid.

Hot Tip:

If you’re short on points to book an award flight with this promotion, you can quickly transfer points from Chase Ultimate Rewards at a 1:1 ratio or transfer points from Marriott Bonvoy at a 3:1 ratio.

Final Thoughts

Overall, this is an excellent promotion for anyone with some Rapid Rewards points in their account. Since Southwest has a revenue-based award program, deals like this are rare and lucrative.

If you have any potential Southwest travel in the near future, it could be worth booking flights now to take advantage of this deal, especially considering the fact that you can change or cancel flights later with no fees.

If you’re going to go ahead and book, remember to do so quickly — the sale ends on Monday, April 15.
