Today only, Southwest is offering 40% off roundtrip flights flown between 12/11/12 and 2/12/13 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

That’s a massive savings if you can take advantage. Unfortunately I literally need a flight for February 13, the day after the promo period. Alanis Morisette would probably call that “ironic” since she doesn’t know what that word means.

The deals are pretty incredible.

Here’s a transcon for $221. Head to and use Promo Code EARLYDEAL in the search box.

Let us know of any great deals you find in the comments.

Unfortunately, award tickets are being priced at 60 points per dollar based on full price, not the 40% discount.

Blackout dates are 12/26, 1/1, 1/2, and 1/22.

Head here for full terms and conditions for the 40% off sale or to book.

Also, if you aren’t a member of Rapid Rewards yet–why aren’t you?!–you can get 1,500 Rapid Rewards just for signing up. That will equate to about $25 in free flights on your first award booking, so it’s a no-brainer. Sign up here.
