Last Day! Save 40% on Southwest for Fall Travel – Save on New or Existing Reservations!

Written by Charlie

This is the last chance to save 40% on Southwest tickets for fall travel! Save on new bookings or rebook existing reservations to save more!

In the past, this week is one of two really great Southwest sales that they run each year – I mean, really good. But, like with a lot of things in travel since Covid, this year it is instead a pretty good deal with a discount code. Today is the final day to save on this sale so check it out!

Before you head over to book, this Southwest sale requires a special promotion code – FALL40. While normal Southwest sales are just a sale price, Southwest is doing a discount on regular priced travel. This 40% discount works on cash or reward tickets the same and the 40% comes off the base fare, not government taxes and fees. In the US, those fees don’t amount to much but they do for any foreign travel.

One more thing – Southwest sales that this is valid for travel on “select flights.” There are no details on which flights it does not apply other than to say that it may “vary by destination, flight, and day of week.” Most likely, they are just protecting themselves a bit since the discount does work on all fares (not just Wanna Get Away) and there are for sure some routes that Southwest is making so much money on already that they don’t want the discount to work on those.

So, with those things out of the way, here are the bullet details!

  • Use promotion code FALL40
  • Valid for bookings from 6/7-6/9/2022 for travel on select flights
  • Valid for travel from 8/16-11/5/2022.
  • Restrictions and exclusions apply.
  • Seats and days limited.
  • Discount is applied before government taxes and fees.

There you go! Time to lock in some travel! In the Southwest way, you can always cancel your tickets later and get your points back or cash back in the form of a credit so you aren’t losing anything (especially points) to book travel now and see what comes of it later!

Check Your Already-Booked Reservations For Price Difference

So, now is the time to search for your tickets within this sale and see if you have a better price available now than when you had booked it. If the price has dropped, you simply select to change the flight and look at the same dates and flights again. Once you go through and confirm, you will receive a refund of the difference in miles and the cash for the taxes will be transferred for the new ticket.

In 1 Minute, You Can Have Your Points Back!

The whole process takes less than 60 seconds and you could save a lot of money or points! If you had booked your ticket in the past using cash, you will receive a refund in the form of a credit that is usable for 1 year from the time you originally booked the ticket. If you booked it with points, you will receive the points back in your account for the difference.
