Southwest Airlines has launched double Tier Credits promo for flights between September 3 – November 30, 2021.
Rapid Rewards members earn double tier credits if they register and then book and fly through the end of November.
You can access Southwest’s My Promotions here.
Rapid Rewards members were “gifted” 25% of the flights and points required to A-List or Companion Pass tiers.
Many airlines, like Delta, have already extended member tiers by an additional year, and I don’t believe that Southwest has any other choice if they wish to retain most of their elite members.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
To register for this promotion, you will need to provide your Rapid Rewards® account number at the time of registration. If you do not have a Rapid Rewards account number, you may register for an account by going online to www.southwest.com/account/enroll/. Rapid Rewards accounts are free.
Member must register for this promotion between September 3 and November 30, 2021 (the “Promotional Period”), and registration must be completed prior to booking and commencement of travel. Valid on new qualifying flights booked and flown within the Promotional Period. Member’s qualifying flight must be booked through Southwest Airlines® during the Promotional Period for travel during the Promotional Period. Member’s flight must be completed during the Promotional Period. Member’s Rapid Rewards account number must be entered at the time of booking Member’s qualifying flight to earn double tier qualifying points for that flight.
Double tier qualifying points are not redeemable for award travel, but do count toward qualification for tier status. Promotion does not apply to travel on award tickets. Offer is valid for domestic and international travel. This offer does not increment the Member’s points balance or award-eligible points balance. Double tier qualifying points will be calculated at 100% of the tier qualifying points earned for each applicable flight and will be posted to the account of the traveling Rapid Rewards Member within 72 hours after the offer ends.
A qualifying flight for this promotion is a one-way revenue flight on Southwest® from an origin city to a destination city, including any intermediate stops and/or connections on Southwest, or a round trip revenue flight on Southwest from an origin city to a destination city and back to the originating airport or carrier-recognized co-terminal. Companion Pass®, charter flights, reward and group travel, and Southwest Vacations® packages do not qualify as one-way or round trip revenue flight(s) for this promotion. Changes made to any itinerary after purchase of a qualifying flight may eliminate qualification for this promotion.
A-List and A-List Preferred qualification will be based on a calendar year. Once A-List or A-List Preferred status is earned, the Member can begin enjoying the benefits within 72 hours. Log in to your account at Southwest.com® to verify your tier status after requirements are met. During the Promotional Period you will not receive an A-List or A-List Preferred card, but you will continue to receive your existing tier status benefits on all flights booked after qualification is met when you provide your Rapid Rewards account number in your reservation. The Member will maintain A-List or A-List Preferred status for the remainder of the calendar year in which the status was earned and for the entire calendar year immediately following. To continue receiving A-List or A-List Preferred tier benefits, the Member must re-qualify each calendar year. The Member can only maintain one Rapid Rewards A-List Membership during a calendar year, regardless of how many flights (over 25 qualifying one-way flights) are taken or points (over 35,000 tier qualifying points) are earned. All Rapid Rewards rules and regulations apply and can be found at www.southwest.com/rrterms. Southwest reserves the right to amend, suspend, or change the Rapid Rewards program and/or Rapid Rewards program rules at any time without notice. Rapid Rewards Members do not acquire property rights in accrued points. The number of Rapid Rewards points needed for a particular Southwest flight is set by Southwest and will vary depending on destination, time, day of travel, demand, fare type, point redemption rate, and other factors, and is subject to change at any time until the booking is confirmed.
