Need to get somewhere for Christmas or New Year's? This festive and surprising new Southwest Holiday Sale could help you get where you want to go for less.
Southwest on Tuesday launched a brand-new holiday sale with 25% off flights around Christmas and New Year's … and pretty much only those days. Using the promo code HOLIDAY25, you'll save 25% on fares flying Dec. 24 or Dec. 25 (Christmas Eve and Christmas Day) and Dec. 31 or Jan. 1 (New Year's Eve and New Years Day.
The sale only works for domestic flights within the continental U.S., so popular spots like Mexico and Hawaii get left out of this one. And you have to book by tomorrow, Wednesday, Dec. 7 to save!
The sale festive little sale is limited and doesn't work on every single fare, but it could unlock some major savings over one of the most expensive times to fly. Already booked to fly Southwest over the holidays? You could even use this sale to rebook your existing Southwest reservation and pocket the difference as a Southwest credit – and those never expire!
Keep in mind: You don't have to fly in and out only on those four days to take advantage. If you're flying somewhere Dec. 24 and returning Dec. 27, you'll save 25% on the first flight but not the second.
