What’s the deal with Rapid Rewards points?
Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards members can get up to 70% extra when you buy points by the end of today (June 30th), or then up to 60% extra through July 13th, 2016.
You need to buy a minimum of 5,000 points and can today earn:
- A 50% bonus when you buy 5,000 to 10,000 Rapid Rewards
- A 60% bonus when you buy 11,000 to 20,000 Rapid Rewards
- A 70% bonus when you buy 21,000 to 60,000 Rapid Rewards
If you buy the maximum amount today, you’ll get 102,000 points for $1,650, so costing 1.61 cents each.
How do I get the Rapid Rewards points deal?
Log in to your Rapid Rewards account here and buy your points either today or by July 13th, 2016.
Is it worth it to buy Rapid Rewards points with this deal?
It’s difficult to justify buying Rapid Rewards with this bonus unless you have a specific redemption in mind, such as a few miles to top off an award. However, 60% and 70% bonuses are definitely some of the better offers for buying points that we’ve seen from Southwest lately!
It’s quite often the case that it’s only really worth buying or gifting points only when they are needed, rather than buying speculatively.
