This month, the Southwest Air 50,000 point card(s) are back for a limited time. There are 2 personal and 2 business cards that are all offering 50,000 points. They are all different products .
50,000 points is a lot of points even with the news this week that SW has devalued their redemption starting March 31st by 15%. There are still a lot of places you can fly for that many points.
However, I am not a fan of SW plus I have to drive to Chicago to fly and pay for Chicago parking and tools – ugg. I would rather not ever fly them unless I am doing something like a positioning flight for a DELTA mileage run then there can be real value. But for me personally, I have other redemption goals with my SW points.
I decided to redeem some points from my last round of cards for Walmart gift cards. There are those in the frequent flyer community will yell that is a horrid value (these are the same knuckleheads who say Skymiles are worthless btw). To me, NOT having to fly SW is a GREAT value. Plus, I do shop at both Sams Club and Walmart so getting some free shopping is sweet to me.
But that leads me up to today’s SWAG question for you to answer for a shot at, what else, a $50 Walmart gift card that I got from my points! First the rules for each week’s event are HERE so please read them. Next, you have to tell me, if you think redeeming SW points for gift cards is a good choice or a bad choice. Neither answer will improve your chance to win as I will use Random.org to pick! – Rene
UPDATE: Drawing will be VERY LATE Sunday night!
