Southwest is currently running a one-day sale today for 35% off select flights on May 22nd, May 30-31, June 5-6, July 4-5. The discount is only for Wanna Get Away Fares, which are Southwest’s lowest fares already. Since this is a one-day sale all travel must be booked today 5/15/2012. To get the code automatically applied, search via this link and make the SUMMER12 should be pre-populated in the promo code box.

The discount is valid on almost every route with the exception of a few business routes or some which it competes with the legacy airlines.  I tried to make a few sample bookings and while the website was extremely slow, it did finally go through and I was able to continue all the way through checkout. Although this states it’s only available on roundtrips. I was able to get one-ways at the discount levels as well.

For example, I tried Phoenix-Los Angeles on June 5th and all the Wanna Get Away fares were normally $79 but with this discount, it came to only $49.15 including all taxes. For comparison, on the same day Delta also flies PHX-LAX and was its price was $79 without any discount.

$79 down to $50... Every dollar counts!

If you have summer travel plans and can be relatively flexible on the dates, this could be a way to save some cash since almost all of their routes are on here. Also, even if you would not normally consider flying Southwest, these can be great to book for positioning flights for mileage runs. Just make to sure to allow enough time in between flights if switching carriers.

    it took a while to get the website to work, but it finally did just now.

  • Ryan

    Sean, that list is the exclusion list, so all the San Diego flights should work. Just make sure its for travel on either May 22nd, May 30-31, June 5-6, July 4-5.

    SWA agent told me it would be a few hours before the IT department has their system back up and running.

  • Tyetine

    Looks like they’re having issues or pulling it early. I was able to see it on my phone, but 30 minutes later when I tried on my computer it said it didn’t recognize the “SUMMER12″ code

  • Chums

    No good flights from SFO

  • Steven S

    For those few of us who own Marriott timeshares, owners can get a travel package for 5 nights at a proportionally lower total. After being a Starwood guy for ages, 5 nights has become my standard so this is a good deal for me.

  • PJ

    when is the 50K promotion coming out again? Many of my friends are waiting to grab it.

    I am praying Delta skymiles can come out as another Avios
