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 has been offering some fantastic discounts 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 throwing for 2 touchdowns in yesterday’s game against the Cardinals, this week sees the discount set at 20%. The highest discount ever offered in this promotion is 40% so this is one of the weaker weeks as far as the discount percentage goes but don’t let that put you off – for the first time we’re now seeing a 20% discount offered on First Class fares too.
The catch? The catch is that the discount is only valid from the end of the game through to 23:59 PT on the day after the game – you have until tonight to book!

This may not be the highest discount that this promotion offers but the fact that the full 20% discount is available on First Class fares is a very nice bonus (the highest discount we’ve seen this promotion offer on First Class fares to date has been 10%). With Hawaii now open to visitors (who test negative for Covid-19) and with the travel dates covering prime whale watching season, there could be some very nice savings to be had for flights to the islands from the states covered by the promotion.
Also, not only is this week’s promotion offering the highest discount available, but it’s also one of the more generous we’ve seen to date in terms of the dates that it covers. The blackout dates are limited and flyers have almost 2 months of dates on which they can travel.
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).
Today only, Alaska Airlines is offering a 20% discount on First Class and Main Cabin fares on all of its flights from/to Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, and Washington. You have until 23:59 PT to book.
