Happy Friday to everyone!  This morning Southwest has been sending out 20% off codes via email that are unique and good for one use only on Wanna Get Away fares.  The reservation can be good for up to eight people, so your whole family should be able to benefit from the 20% discount if they are traveling together.  Note that this is a 20% discount on the cash price, not the points price.

The purchase must be made prior to 11:59PM on 3/25/13 for travel 4/3/13 – 6/8/13.  There are some blackout dates for certain cities and the deal is not valid on Sundays.  I will post all of the terms and conditions below.  If one of your travel dates is outside the valid period then only the portion within the promo dates will be discounted.

I have a one-time use code that I will post in the comments section.  If you have a code that you aren’t going to use, please feel free to post it in the comments section so perhaps someone else can save a few bucks.  If you use someone’s code I ask that you please leave a comment stating which comment you used so that no one wastes their time trying to use a code that is no longer useful.  😉
