Alitalia is offering a 20% off flash sale this weekend now through noon (presumably in Rome) May 21, 2012 (Monday) using the code: SPECIAL20IT.

The offer page on Alitalia's Italian site.

Here are the (roughly) translated details:

“For you a discount of 20% off all destinations of the Alitalia network. The discount of 20% applies on the total ticket price (taxes, surcharges and service sales included), all of the destinations of Alitalia network purchased in Economy (Classica) and Business (Ottima and Magnifica), excluding Premium Economy (Classica Plus). Offer valid for flying from May 22, 2012  through April 15, 2013.

Not too shabby—if you know you’re going to Italy this coming year (or just feel like doing so now) you can get the 20% off on tickets for travel now through next April. You basically complete the booking process as normal and then on the checkout page, you enter the coupon code in the box titled E-COUPON, and the price should adjust automatically.

Just note, the code doesn’t seem to work on the US English language site. In order to get the discount, it looks like you have to go through the promo page, which is in Italian.

Just for kicks, I priced out a sample itinerary roundtrip from New York JFK to Roma Fiumicino in economy in September. The trip originally came to 851.29 euros ($1,080).

The original itinerary came to around 850 euros.

When I entered the code SPECIAL20IT in the E-Coupon box though, 170 euros were subtracted and the new fare was 601.04 euros, or $870.55. Amazing? No, but getting that extra $217 off is still better than nothing.

With the 20% discount, my fare was now 681 euros.

Here are the rest of the terms and conditions:

-Coupon-code can be used on site to buy domestic, international, or intercontinental, to be carried out from 22/05/2012 and not later than 15.04.2013 (last return).
-e-coupon promotion may also be used to purchase tickets payable to third parties and is not combined with other coupon codes.
the alphanumeric code of the e-coupons must be inserted in the page field “Ticket Details” during the checkout process online. To view the cost of the discounted ticket and ‘must click “Recalculate”.
-During the period of validity ‘, the customer can’ participate in the promotion of more ‘times.
-e-Coupon is not valid for Classic Plus.
-e-Coupon is not valid on the youth rate and fee continuity territory.
-e-Coupon is not valid on MilleMiglia award tickets.

    I hope you are planning another trip, because you are running out of content. I don’t mean to criticize you, I totally respect what you are doing and I think you are one of the best bloggers out there. So I suggest you do another trip like your Asian trip, perhaps longer.

    This blog offers nothing timely, nothing new and nothing substantive.

    Cut me a little slack- its a slow news day and this promo may save some people money, so why not post?

  • Lifeandstylemadrid

    I love your blog and this deal is the reason Jorge can fly to Chicago with me this summer, I thank you a million times for posting this deal! It saved him almost 200 euros.

  • Alberto Grazi

    Same here, I am going to save >400EUR to bring my family back to Italy for Christmas!

    Thank you so much for the post!

    pricing a deal from NYC to anywhere is not much of a challenge. Get me good deal from Boise, ID, to Milan; and I will take note. Or anywhere from Bumfuck, Egypt, other than NYC, to just another Bumfuck !!!

    Earn your upkeep!!!

    Yeah…TPG should not only tell us about deals, but they should just give us all the points, book our tickets for us and arrange our hotels as well. Perhaps a $1000 cash as a “cherry on top.” Get with the program TPG.

    Or…maybe if we find the blog to be boring and/or not useful, we could save ourselves the trouble and just not read the blog. Oh wait…people derive utility from heckling. my bad.
