Double Points Promotion Details

Let’s use an example to illustrate the value of this promotion. If you have top status with Southwest, you’ll earn 12x points for a business select fare. This is 12x double points promo, 12x for A-List preferred (100% of base), so 36x SW points per dollar spent on a Business Select Fare.

For a $100 business select fare, the rebate will be $60 dollars worth in Southwest points.

  • So for spending $100, you”ll get $60 back
  • 1 SW point = 1.6 cents in Wanna Get Away Fares
  • $100 Fare X 36 points per dollar / 60 = $60
