Southwest has launched a new promotion in which they are offering 1000 bonus points per flight into 5 new Southwest destinations including the tradition-breaking destination of San Juan. Southwest has only served the lower 48 up until this point. All 5 of these routes are really just former AirTran flights transitioning into Southwest flights.
“Southwest service to Charlotte, Flint, Portland (Maine), Rochester, and San Juan begins April 14, 2013!
To celebrate, we’ve created a special promotion for travel into or out of these new Southwest destinations. Earn 1,000 Rapid Rewards® Bonus Points on every one-way flight you book through Southwest Airlines to any of these five new destinations and complete by August 1, 2013. These bonus points are in addition to the standard points you already receive for your flight. Check out the chart below to see how your points can add up quickly with this promotion.
