Leap Day isn’t generally considered a travel holiday, but for Alaska Airlines, it’s reason enough to offer an attractive BOGO flight deal.

Right now, when you buy one flight, you can get a second ticket for just the price of taxes and fees. The biggest restriction is that the deal only applies to flights departing on Feb. 29, 2020, or March 3, 2020. If those dates work for you, you have until 11:59 p.m. PST on Feb. 11, 2020 to book the deal.

How to book

  1. Go to Alaska Airlines’ website to check whether your route qualifies for the deal.

  2. Search for availability on Feb. 29, 2020, or March 3, 2020. Make sure you select two passengers when booking.

  3. Use the promo code “LEAPDAY” in the discount code field.

Great deals

When we checked, there were still some great deals to find through this sale. For example, two tickets for a one-way nonstop Saver fare from San Diego to Maui came in at only $192.80 with the promotion. That’s only $96.40 per person to fly to Hawaii.

There are 16 destinations on sale if San Francisco is your home base. If you’re a Bay Area resident trying to escape to some place a little warmer, two Saver-fare tickets from San Francisco to Fort Lauderdale could cost as little as $153.80, or $76.90 per person.

Other airports with lots of routes that qualify for this deal include Alaska Airlines’ hubs in Portland and Seattle.

The bottom line

This one-day sale is great for travelers based on the West Coast who are flexible enough to travel on one of two specific days coming up. However, there’s limited route availability, and you have to book on Feb. 11, 2020.

If this promotion does not apply to you, keep an eye out for the next ones. Alaska is known for quirky sales, like its recent Northern Lights promotion and its Ugly Sweater priority boarding.
