Southwest Airlines has launched a bonus Rapid Rewards points campaign for flights to and from Bush/Intercontinental Airport in Houston (IAH).
The double Rapid Rewards points are valid for tickets both purchased and flown between April 19 – July 18, 2021. You also need to register for this offer.
You can access Southwest’s page for promotions here.
- Wanna Get Away = 6 points per USD
- Anytime = 10 points per USD
- Business Select = 12 points per USD
These are double for the duration of the promotion for flights to/from IAH.
Southwest Airlines last week devalued the value of its Rapid Rewards points by 6% or so percentage points. It doesn’t make much sense because earning and redeeming are both dynamic.
The airline is showing some love for those flying to/from Houston (IAH).
