Last week I posted about 7 stackable promotions that creates some MAJOR earning opportunities for savvy Southwest flyers. While the nationwide double points promotion has expired since then, Southwest credit card holders are in luck because a new double points offer has just launched!
As a Rapid Rewards® Credit Cardmember, you can earn double points on flights booked through Southwest Airlines® between July 1, 2013 and August 31, 2013. Pay with your Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® Credit Card and watch your points soar!
With this promotion, you will receive 24 points (instead of the standard 12 points) per dollar spent on Business Select® Fares, 20 points (instead of ten points) per dollar spent on Anytime Fares, and 12 points (instead of six points) per dollar spent on Wanna Get Away® Fares.
Here’s how easy it is to take advantage of this promotion:
- Register between June 19, 2013 and August 31, 2013.
- Purchase your flights through Southwest® with your Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Credit Card for travel between July 1, 2013 and August 31, 2013.
- Earn double points on your flights!
Keep in mind that you also continue to earn 2 points per dollar spent on flights just by using your card.
To register, login to your Southwest account and find the promotion under the Promotions tab.
