Southwest Airlines announced they'd be celebrating their 40th anniversary by offering free downloads of a 40-song playlist from the iTunes Store through July 31st. Sadly, while they handed out promo codes with a "use by" date, they left out the detail that there was a limit to the total number of code redemptions allowed.
"We had an allotted number of codes to download, and the offer was so popular, they were all redeemed in less than a week," a Southwest spokesperson told the Associated Press. The company isn't saying the total number of downloads they'd arranged with Apple, just that it was "in the six figures."
If you got a promo code from Southwest and you thought you had two months to redeem it, turns out you were wrong! Did you get stuck with a worthless promo code and nothing to listen to?
