UPDATE: This specific promotion has expired. Please click HERE for the latest Alaska Airlines Touchdown & Takeoff Sale

Alaska Airlines is running a fun promotion for the duration of the NFL season in which it’s offering a fantastic discount on fares out of select states. The promotion is built around the scoring prowess of Russell Wilson, the quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, and runs after every Seahawks home game in which Wilson scores.

Alaska Airlines Touchdown & Takeoff Sale

The more touchdowns Russell Wilson scores in a Seahawks home game the bigger discount Alaska Airlines will offer on select routes and with Wilson scoring 5 touchdowns in yesterday’s game against the Patriots, this week sees the discount cap reached – 40%.

The catch? The catch is that the discount is only valid from the end of the game throught to 23:59 PT on the day after the game – you have until tonight to book!

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Use discount code RUSS40
  • This week’s discount code is valid for 40% off coach base fare levels published at alaskaair.com.
  • Valid for itineraries up to a maximum of six (6) people, traveling together and booked and ticketed at the same time in the same reservation and at the same fare
  • Valid for one-way or round-trip travel.

Quick Thoughts

This could end up being a very generous promotion…and with Hawaii supposedly opening up from 15 October these could be some very nice savings to be had for flights to the islands from the states covered by the promotion.

Don’t forget to make the most of whatever fares you’re booking by using a credit card that earns you bonus points on flights and, preferably that also offers you great protection against delays, interruptions, and cancellations (the Platinum Card from American Express and the Chase Sapphire Reserve Card are the two more obvious choices of card to use).

Bottom Line

Alaska Airlines is offering a 40% discount on economy class fares from Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, and Washington until 23:59 PT TONIGHT. This promotion will repeat after every Seahawks home game in which Russell Wilson scores, but with the percentage discount based on the number of touchdowns Wilson scores, we may not see the 40% discount offered all that often – make the most of it now!
