Supermarket Giant Eagle is offering $20 off when you buy $250 in Southwest Airlines gift cards through 2/26/20. While this 8% discount isn’t the best deal on Southwest gift cards (we occasionally see them on sale for 10% off of face value), it could still be useful for those triggering a category bonus and/or who can use Giant Eagle fuel points as I believe you’ll earn those with these gift cards.

As noted at the top, we see Southwest gift cards go on sale for 10% off now and then, so if you do not have an immediate need for Southwest gift cards you may want to wait for a larger discount.
On the other hand, since Giant Eagle is a supermarket chain, there is a decent chance that this purchase would code as groceries. I am not certain whether ordering a physical vs electronic gift card makes a difference. Either way, you’d want to use a card that earns one of the best category bonuses at US Supermarkets. Furthermore, Giant Eagle indicates in the shopping cart that purchases over $50 earn fuel points, so I assume you’ll earn those as well (which will likely only be of use for those who live in Giant Eagle’s footprint.
I personally prefer to only use a gift card to cover part of the airfare purchase so that I can maintain trip delay coverage benefits from my credit card (which, in the case of the CSR or Ritz card, only require a portion of the fare to be purchased on your credit card). The good news there is that Giant Eagle is offering the discount when you buy $250 or more in gift cards, but you could purchase smaller denominations that add up to $250 and still get the discount.
If you’ll be booking a flight on Southwest soon, the chance to save $20 might be worth it.
