Since April 6, 2018 Southwest Airlines has had a promotion running that offers double Rapid Rewards points. The ending date of the promo was supposed to be June 13th but Southwest has now extended the date. You can sign up for the promotion at this link.
As a reminder, here’s the earning structure for flying on Southwest:
- 12 points per dollar for Business Select fares
- 10 points per dollar for Anytime fares
- 6 points per dollar for Wanna Get Away fares
With this promotion you will earn:
- 24 points per dollar for Business Select fares
- 20 points per dollar for Anytime fares
- 12 points per dollar for Wanna Get Away fares
The only restriction for this promotion is you need to sign up before your flight; no retroactive credit will be applied. If you didn’t sign up because you weren’t flying during the original dates but will be flying on Southwest before the end of the month, it’s not to late. You can sign up on Southwest’s website at the link HERE.
