Does it make ANY sense to buy Rapid Rewards points?

The value of a Rapid Rewards point used for Wanna Getaway fares is 1.4 cents, 1 cent for Anytime fares and 0.83 cents for Business Select fares. Southwest further devalued the value of Rapid Rewards points on April 17, 2015 (read more here)

It makes no sense whatsoever to purchase Rapid Rewards points at 1.96 cents each, when the maximum value that you can get out of them is capped at 1.4 cents each.

The only time I could consider buying would be if I would need to top off an account (small number of points) for an award redemption.

Note that paid fares would EARN more Rapid Rewards points. Certain taxes are not applicable for award tickets issued using Rapid Rewards points and ticket are cancelable.

Conclusion

Buying points purely because they are on sale doesn’t often makes much sense. This is one of those sales that is very difficult to justify unless you need to top up your account for an award.
