Southwest Airlines has launched “National Double Points Promotion” for flights booked and flown between April 6 – June 13, 2018.
Members will receive 12 bonus points per USD charged on Business Select, 10 bonus points on Anytime and 6 bonus points on Wanna Getaway fares in addition to the usual points earned.
You can access this offer on Southwest’s website here.
Southwest Airlines did a mini Rapid Rewards points devaluation this week without any advance warning to program members when they changed the number of Rapid Rewards points per USD required for Wanna Getaway fares.
The point (pun intended) of these dollar based programs for both earning and burning was that there wouldn’t be need for constant devaluations because the number of miles/points needed for free flight is always dependent of the price of the ticket.
Seems that this double Rapid Rewards points promotion may be open for all members. They tend to have targeted offers throughout the year.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
Earn Double Rapid Rewards® Points between April 6 and June 13, 2018.
