Southwest Airlines fans, take note of this deal. Sam’s Club will have a limited-time deal Black Friday deal on Southwest Airlines gift cards, providing a substantial $100 savings. This promotion allow customers to purchase $500 Southwest Airlines gift cards for only $400, making it a bargain for those planning upcoming travels. The deal doesn’t start until November 23, so make sure to set a reminder.

Discovered and shared by the savvy Slickdeals community member, Serra, this exclusive deal stands out in comparison to typical gift card discounts, which usually cap at $50. On November 23rd, you can enjoy an additional $50 in savings per $500 gift card, offering great value.

For those looking to seize this opportunity, you should be able to buy more than one gift card. But we don’t know yet what the max might be. Regardless, this deal presents a golden opportunity to save big on Southwest Airlines travel.

Act fast, as such generous discounts are rare. Visit Sam’s Club or check out for more details and to take advantage of this limited-time offer before it flies away. Pun intended.

Save Even More on This Deal

If you have the Chase Freedom Flex credit card you get 5% cash back at wholesale clubs this quarter, so you would only pay $380 for a $500 gift card after factoring in your cash back. Another option is if you have the Citi Custom Cash card, which gives you 5% back in your top spending category each month (up to $500, then 1% after that). If wholesale clubs ends up being the category you spend the most in during November, you would get one gift card for $380 as well. But you would need to spend another $100 on something else that month to get to $500 in total spend for the month.

If you don’t have a cash back credit card, you should consider getting one. Your debit card is most likely not going to offer perks or cash back on deals like this.

Does Southwest Airlines Have Black Friday Deals?

Yes and no. Southwest has been running a promo where you could earn up to 4,000 bonus points when shopping online through Rapid Rewards Shopping up until November 22. You would get 400 bonus points after spending $100, 1,200 points if you spent $400 and 4,000 points if you spent $1,000 or more. But there are currently no Black Friday deals on flights that we are aware of.

Your best bet will be a gift card deal like the one Sam’s Club is offering this year.
