Southwest and JetBlue 1 Day Sale

Both Southwest and JetBlue are having a one day sale today May 15th. In my mind both companies are similar to Macy’s where almost every day is a different 1 day sale. Nonetheless, I love how often these two airline companies offer some great savings to their customers.

So here are the details:

  • 35% off a “Wanna Get Away” fare using promotion code SUMMER12
  • Book today for travel on the following dates: May 22, May 30-31, June 5-6, July 4-5
  • Discount is not valid on reservations using Rapid Reward points and cannot be combined with any other discount or DING! fares
  • Discount is not valid for travel between the following city pairs:
    • Austin—San Diego
    • Baltimore/Washington—Ft. Myers
    • Baltimore/Washington—San Diego
    • New York LaGuardia—Chicago Midway
    • Kansas City—San Diego
    • Chicago Midway—Oakland
    • Chicago Midway—San Diego
    • Chicago Midway—San Antonio
    • Chicago Midway—Seattle
    • Chicago Midway—San Francisco
    • Chicago Midway—Tucson
    • Minneapolis/St. Paul—Phoenix
    • St. Louis—Tampa Bay
  • Southwest sale details

JetBlue: 

  • Fares starting as low as $39 one-way
  • Book today (through 11:59pm EST) for travel May 22nd through June 21
  • Fares not available on Orbitz, Travelocity, Expedia or Priceline
  • Each city pair sale has different restrictions, but most discounted fares are only available for travel on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday (Friday and Sunday excluded)
  • Fares have limited availability (I’ve searched through some random dates and was not able to find the lowest fare advertised)
  • JetBlue sale details
While this is by no means one of their better one-day sales, it is still something. I personally think the Southwest one is better although limited dates. I was having a hard time finding the lowest advertised fare for many of the JetBlue markets. Also, Memorial Day and July 4th are on the list for the Southwest sale which can make for a great last minute getaway.
Remember, if you find a good fare, feel free to book and you have 24 hours to cancel (with both JetBlue and Southwest). This will allow you to get in on the cheap early fare, talk it over with the significant other tonight, sleep on it, and cancel in the morning if you need to.
Anyone able to benefit from this sale? I personally will not be benefiting from this sale, but I hope someone will!

  1. With Southwest, you can cancel anytime and re-use the funds fee-free within 12 months of the original purchase date. The catch is that the travel funds must be used to book travel for the same person that was originally ticketed.

    • @Jon – That is correct. I had the new rule with the travel voucher not being transferrable, but it was good while it lasted.

  2. About two weeks ago, I received an email from Jet Blue (probably targeted) for a mystery airfare. All I had to do was book an airfare and the mystery discount showed up. I booked a roundtrip for June for $14 for myself and my wife LAS-LAX-LAS all in.

  3. I haven’t been able to book ANY flight through southwest.com or any other backdoor address today. Anyone else having same issue(s)?

  4. An error has occurred. Please visit southwest.com or southwest.com booking for more help.
    If this issue persists, please call 1-800-I-FLY-SWA (1-800-435-9792).
