    The "Promotional Codes" button has been renamed, now it says "Apply Travel Funds". Promo Codes/Travel Funds are funds from an unused or canceled reservation, Southwest Airlines Gift Cards, or Southwest Airlines LUV Vouchers which can be used to pay for all or part your reservation.

    Unused or canceled reservations are exactly what they sound like. If you miss your flight or just decide not to go, the money you paid for that ticked is stored electronically by Southwest and you are given a code to enter when you are ready to buy another ticket. This only applies to the discounted "Wanna Get Away" fares.

    If you have a full price "Business Select" or "Anytime" fare you can get an actual refund of the ticket.

    Southwest Airlines Gift Cards are cards you can buy and send to someone else to be used to pay for tickets on Southwest Airlines. Or you can use them yourself if you wanted to.

    LUV Vouchers are given to passengers as a way of compensating them for an inconvenience. For example, when a flight is overbooked and they call for volunteers to give up their seat in exchange for compensation, they get a LUV Voucher. They are also sometimes used to thank passengers for assisting with a medical emergency during flight.

    You probably have to do something on their website.
