Earn Double Points on Southwest Airlines

Add to Favorites:

Travelers can earn twice as many points when flying on Southwest Airlines this fall. Whether they are visiting friends or booking a trip to somewhere warm, Rapid Rewards members will earn double rewards on all flights booked and competed by November 21.

New and existing loyalty program members have to visit the airline’s website and sign up for the promotion before they can earn the bonus. Only flights booked directly through Southwest Airlines are eligible.

Travelers can earn 12 bonus points for every dollar they spend on Business Select Fares. Anytime Fare bookings will receive 10 bonus points per dollar, and Wanna Get Away Fares earn 6 bonus points. Once members complete their flight, points will be deposited in their account within four days.

Flights booked through AirTran Airways, a Southwest subsidiary, can’t be used to rack up double points, although points earned in AirTran’s A+ Rewards and Southwest’s Rapid Rewards can be used to book award travel on either airline.

More opportunities to earn and save

If you can’t get away until later in the year and you’re looking to escape from winter, Southwest Airlines also has a promotion on flights in and out of San Juan, Puerto Rico. Rapid Rewards members can earn triple points, when they book these flights from now until December 12. Flights must be booked directly through Southwest.

Next year the airline is launching non-stop service to and from Atlanta. They have reduced one-way fares for travel from April 7 to May 15, 2014 on these routes:

  • Atlanta and Jacksonville – $99

  • Atlanta and Kansas City – $119

  • Atlanta and Philadelphia – $119

  • Atlanta and Boston – $129

  • Atlanta and San Antonio – $149

Travelers must book their flights by October 20 to be eligible for the reduced rate. The discounted fare is not available from April 17 to 22, 2014.

Southwest Airlines flies 3,200 flights a day to 86 destinations, including Puerto Rico. In 2011 Southwest bought AirTran Airways, which fly’s 500 flights a day to 47 cities.
