Can I redeem my points at Southwest air for cash? I have Chase Southwest credit card with some points on it.

Answered on

No. You won’t be able to redeem Southwest points for cash. The points can be redeemed for flights, gift cards, merchandise, hotel stays, and rental cars. If you want to be able to redeem for flights and cash, consider getting a travel rewards credit card. For example, it can be the… Continue reading

I don’t have a Southwest Airlines Visa credit card, so I wanted to know if I can use Discover miles on a Southwest flight without blackout dates? Is it as easy to use Discover miles vs Southwest miles on a Southwest flight?

Answered on

Yes. You can use the Discover it® Miles credit card to earn or redeem miles for Southwest flights. There are no blackout dates. You simply use the Miles card to buy any Southwest ticket and then, when you see the purchase on your Discover account, you can apply your miles to the… Continue reading

I have a Southwest Airlines credit card but my Southwest points expired! I’ve been saving for a family trip, I’ve accrued almost 200,000 on Rapid Rewards, which is more than enough for us. I was hoping to redeem those miles this year for a trip to Italy, but I was taken aback when I learned that my miles expired! How could this happen to me?!

Answered on

Judging from what you are telling, you haven’t been flying Southwest for quite a while. Southwest’s policy is that your miles expire after 24 months of inactivity. “Inactivity” in Southwest’s terms is a little different from other airlines. While on United or American you can… Continue reading

I read a Southwest credit card review and it sounded great to have a Southwest Rewards credit card. I often fly Southwest, but I also choose other airlines frequently. It’s not very convenient for me to have a separate credit card for each airline, so I’m thinking if it’ll be enough to have only a Southwest Airlines credit card?

Answered on

Certainly, when you acquire a credit card for travel, you want it to be versatile and convenient for any needs. Unfortunately, airlines want you to be loyal and only grant you rewards when you fly that one airline. Southwest wants you to fly Southwest and therefore gives small rewards on all other… Continue reading

I often fly with Southwest Airlines but I also fly with other airlines, so I don’t want to apply for their Rapid credit card. I need a card that will get me a reward ticket regardless the airline I fly.

Answered on

It’s understandable that you do not want to apply for the Rapid Visa card as it won’t allow you to earn big rewards everywhere and won’t allow you to redeem the way you want. Continue reading

I am looking to apply for Southwest card but not sure… I do fly with them and I’m a member of Rapid Rewards but I do not fly with them often, once a year or even less. Just thought it would be good having Southwest credit card. What are your thoughts?

Answered on

Since you do not fly with Southwest Airlines often, we would not recommend you applying for its credit card. The reasoning is simple: biggest rewards (2 points per $1) are earned on Southwest purchases and on purchases with some partners only. Continue reading

How do Southwest points work?

Answered on

Southwest points work like many other frequent flyer points or airline miles. You fly Southwest and earn points, then you redeem accumulated points for an awards travel. Everything is easy on the surface but there can be pitfalls. Continue reading

If I apply for the Southwest Rapid Rewards credit card that offers 40k points, will it be enough for a flight to Honolulu from NY?

Answered on

First, before you apply for a Southwest credit card, you should know that Southwest Airlines does not fly to Hawaii. So, basically you will waste your time and effort applying for a Southwest credit card. Continue reading

How to earn more Southwest points? I’m planning trip to San Jose with my family but I’m not sure I have enough points to redeem.

Answered on

To earn Southwest points, first, you should be registered in the Southwest loyalty program – Rapid Rewards®. Once you are a member, you will earn points on every dollar spent to fly Southwest. When you do not fly, you can earn Southwest points with the partners. Also, you can transfer points or buy… Continue reading
