How to get a southwest airline coupon or promotion code?

Question by Mike Z: How to get a southwest airline coupon or promotion code?
I have flied southwest airline many times but have not seen a promotion code or coupon. Is there a way to get one so I can save some money? thanks

Best answer:

Answer by Walter S.
Hi, I noticed the same thing. The Promotional Code box on the Southwest.com site is mostly for people who rent cars. Right now there is a code 7013880 which will give Rapid Rewards at a higher rate than usual. It’s from Alamo, they usually give .5 RR /per rental, they’ll give 3x RR. You must rent a mid size+, for 3 day minimum. It expires !2/15/07. Hertz and Budget also have southwest codes to get RR’s at 3x, or 4x the usual rate. Hope this helps, I just happened upon another thread that explained it.

Answer by Brett P
Why would you pay all the extra money for a Mac if you’re going to boot Windows?

Only difference between this computer and the Macbook Pro 17″ is that the HP has a Core 2 Quad (not available on the Mac), a 18.4″ screen (vs. 17″ on the Mac), a Bluray/DVD±R/RW and of course, it’s $ 700 cheaper than the Mac… Think about it.

If gas stations only make a few cents off of each gallon how can some stores offer discounts?

Question by deepindebt2008: If gas stations only make a few cents off of each gallon how can some stores offer discounts?
Our local grocery store also owns a gas station and they run specials each week to get gas coupons – for example buy $ 50 worth of groceries save 10 cents per gallon of gas up to 40 gallons. And you can use up to 2 discount coupons at a time. I find it hard to believe that they went through all the cost of building a gas station and then give coupons so that they are losing money on gas. there is no way that gas stations are making all their money off of people buying items in the store.

Best answer:

Answer by General Custer
The markup on gas is about 35-50 cents per gallon.

Question by The Jeffrey: What percent of fair market value is paid on an auction foreclosure?
I’m trying to get a rough idea of how much of a discount there is to fair market value for a public foreclosure auction. I know there is a lot of variables, but just looking for a rough range. 60-80%?

If it helps, I have a house in mind, it zillow’s at 300k, is in a nice neighborhood, haven’t seen other local foreclosures, the central air needs to be replaced, but otherwise appears to be in good condition.

Seniors, are there chairs in the lobby of your local post office?

Question by handyPig: Seniors, are there chairs in the lobby of your local post office?
I had to pick up a package that came while I was away for a few days. When I went, the carrier hadn’t arrived back from her delivery route and I had to wait about half an hour. No big deal, really, but there were no chairs in the lobby, so I wondered if that was typical?

Answer by Billy
No, and for good reason.

Q&A: Would you use a coupon or discount card if you ate out with friends?

Question by questioner: Would you use a coupon or discount card if you ate out with friends?
I went out to dinner with friends and when the bill came I pulled out a coupon so we could save money. The people at the table acted all embarrasssed and wondered why I would make them look so small. I have not heard from any one from that group since.

I suspect they are embarrassed to be seen with someone who can not afford to pay full price. Was I rude to pull out a coupon without telling them first?

Answer by Sara
