Update:The offer mentioned below has expired and is no longer available.

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:

Promo Code: MAX20

Routes: All Southwest routes are eligible except to/from Orange County (SNA) between December 1, 2023 and January 2, 2024

Travel Dates: Between December 1, 2023-March 6, 2024

  • Blackout Dates:
    • December 22-23, 2023
    • December 26-28, 2023
    • December 30, 2023
    • January 1, 2024

Booking Period: By November 11, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. PT

The offer should be applied automatically when you use the code on an eligible flight. The code works for flights booked in dollars or Southwest Rapid Rewards points, and the full terms and conditions can be found here.

This could also be a great time to check your existing cash or award bookings with Southwest, cancel them, and rebook them with the 20% discount.

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:

Learn more about all of the best ways to earn Southwest Rapid Rewards points that can then be redeemed for flights across the airline’s entire network.

Final Thoughts

If you have any potential Southwest travel soon, it could be worth booking flights to take advantage of this deal, especially because you can change or cancel flights later with no fees. If you’re going to go ahead and book, remember to do so quickly here — the flash sale ends on November 11, 2023!
