Southwest Rapid Rewards Bonus for One Best Western Stay – 1200 Total Points

Best Western has a promotion with Southwest Airlines. You can earn 600 bonus points in addition to the base points of 600 for a total of 1200 points for one Best Western stay between December 20 and January 31, 2013. You need to register for this promotion before your stay. You can access the Southwest’s page for this promotion here and Best Western’s here.


Southwest Airlines is referring to STAYS but the Best Western Terms and Conditions to one STAY and total bonus points of 600 during the promotional period. Most likely the Southwest person got the copy wrong on their web page and this promotion is only valid for one stay.

1200 Southwest Rapid Rewards points are worth $20 when used for Wanna Getaway fares, $12 when used for Anytime fares, and $10 when used for Business select fares.


If you have one stay coming up during the promotional period and you collect Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards points, this is a nice onetime bonus.
