Discover it cardholders can get 10% off any Southwest flight through September 30, 2015.
Find out how to get this deal and how you can save at least 5% on Southwest flights year-round!
How Can You Save 10% on Your Next Southwest Flight?
That’s because Amazon is a 5% cash back category through September 30, 2015. And new Discover it cardholders and current cardholders who signed-up get all cash back doubled at the end of their 1st 12 billing cycles.
So you’ll earn a total of 10% cash back at Amazon (5% cash back after your purchase + another 5% cash back at the end of your 1st card year) on up to $1,500 in purchases this quarter.
New Discover it cardholders can also earn $50 after their 1st purchase within the 1st 3 months of opening their account. And there’s NO annual fee.
Southwest gift cards can be redeemed for any Southwest flight and they never expire!
So even if you don’t have a trip planned in the near future, you can buy a Southwest gift card now and book your flight later.
Next quarter’s bonus categories are for Holiday Shopping, which may include Amazon. In 2014, the last quarter was online shopping. So you might be able to get this deal AGAIN next quarter!
Sweeten the Deal With the Companion Pass!
If you have the Southwest Companion Pass, this is an even better deal! That’s because with the Southwest Companion Pass, 1 friend flies with you for close to free for up to 2 years.
Don’t Have a Discover It Card?
You can still save 5% to 6% on paid Southwest flights any time!
To save, buy Southwest gift cards at office supply stores or grocery stores with credit cards that earn bonus points or cash back such as:
- AMEX SimplyCash – 5% cash back at US office supply stores
- Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express – 6% cash back at US supermarkets up to $6,000 per year; then 1%
- Chase Ink Bold (no longer available), Ink Plus, Ink Cash – 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points (5% cash back) at office supply stores
Plus, Discover it will double all cash back earned at the end of your 1st 12 billing cycles, if you’re a new cardholder or current cardholder who registered. That gives you a total of 10% cash back on Southwest gift cards that you can use to purchase your next flight!
This deal gets even better for folks who have the Southwest Companion Pass, because a friend can fly with you for (almost) free!
If you don’t have the Discover it card, don’t worry! You can still earn 5% to 6% cash back by purchasing Southwest gift cards at office supply and grocery stores with cards like AMEX SimplyCash.
