Q: What is a promotion code?
A: A promotion code can be used to get a discount on flights on Southwest.com or swabiz.com by entering your unique promotion code in the promotion code box on the booking widget. The discount is applied before taxes and fees. If you have entered your unique single-use promotion code in the Promo Code box on Southwest.com or swabiz.com during the Booking Period, then while selecting your flights, savings in the base fare will be visible as a strike-through of the original fare on eligible flights. The discount from the promotion code will apply to all passengers booked under a single reservation.
Q: Can I use my promotion code more than once?
A: The single-use 50% off promotion code can only be redeemed once and can be redeemed by anyone.
Q: Can I use my promotion code on an existing reservation?
A: Discount is valid on new reservations only.
Q: Can I cancel my flight I purchased with promotion code and use the discount for another flight?
A: No, cancellation to a reservation or changes made to the itinerary after purchase will eliminate qualifications for this promotion and will result in forfeiture of any promotion code savings.
Q: Can I use multiple promotion codes together?
A: The discount is only valid with the provided promotion code and is not combinable with other promotion codes or fares.

Southwest Second Flight Promotion: ToP Thoughts
My issue with Southwest…wait, that is too long of a list (kidding). My issue with Southwest promotions is that they always have these narrow windows to book the flights and then another narrow window to travel when earning AND when using it. It leads people to paying more to book with them to earn the discount etc. and then end up not using it. It is a little deceptive, but that is marketing / promotions at their finest!
If you fly Southwest often though, then who cares! You should hopefully be able to take advantage of this one if Southwest is your main airline for domestic travel.
If you already have a flight booked that would work see if the price has changed. It may be worth cancelling and rebooking within the promo period if the price hasn't moved much.
