Southwest Airlines has launched a new offer to drive member bookings and flights through August 31, 2020.
Rapid Rewards members will earn double points for flights that are both booked and flown within the promotional period.
You can access this offer on Southwest’s website here.
The number of points you earn is dependent on the fare type you buy:
- Wanna Get Away = 6 points per dollar (12 during this promotion)
- Anytime = 10 points per dollar (20 during this promotion)
- Business Select = 12 points per dollar (24 during this promotion)
The value of a Rapid Rewards point used for Wanna Getaway fares is 1.4 cents, Anytime Fares 1 cent, and Business Select 0.83. You get the most bang for your buck if you earn on Business fares and then redeem for Wanna Get Away.
Let’s see if other airlines in the United States will release double miles offers to match Southwest.
