The 20% discount shaves off a nice little amount from the original award prices although right now you might be able to find a cheap paid fare either way depending on the city pair.
Many airlines have some sort of discount promotion at the moment since traveling is very light for obvious reasons which makes flying cheap and people tend to not use their miles as it often doesn’t make much sense.
Southwest followed this example with a three day sale for their awards when using the promo code. Hopefully people can use it to their advantage.
