Southwest has a loyal following 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 latest promotion.
Travelers can take 20% off their Southwest Airlines flights for a limited time. The Dallas-based airline is partnering with points and miles expert Max Do (better known as MaxMilesPoints on social media) to offer the deal.
Here’s what you should know to take advantage.
Fare Deal — Details
Southwest’s latest offer is for 20% off one-way or round-trip “Wanna Get Away” and “Wanna Get Away Plus” fares. To book, head over to Southwest’s website to choose your flight and use the promotion code MAX20. There are a few things to know about the deal before you book:

Best Ways to Book
By using one of Southwest’s co-branded credit cards to book your flights, you could also earn 2x to 4x points spent on your Southwest purchases. These cards also come with other useful perks like anniversary bonus points every cardmember year, EarlyBird Check-In certificates, and more.
Alternatively, we recommend using a credit card that rewards you for airline or general travel purchases.Hot Tip:
