Southwest 15% Bonus

Southwest 15% Bonus

Register to earn up to 15,000 bonus points this year. Points that post to your Rapid Rewards® account between 5/1/18 and 11/30/18 under the category of “Credit Card” will be eligible for a 15% bonus up to 15,000 bonus points.

For example, if you have 2,000 points from your Rapid Rewards Credit Card post to your Rapid Rewards Account each month during May through November, you’ll earn a total of 2,100 bonus points from Southwest. And those 2,100 points will count toward Companion Pass too! (i.e.2,000 + 2,000 + 2,000 + 2,000 + 2,000 + 2,000 + 2,000 = 14,000 * 15% =2,100 bonus points).

Guru’s Wrap-Up

Californians are Southwest’s favorites. They get promotions for millions of points, easy ways to get Companion Pass and they could soon use that Companion Pass for direct flights to Hawaii. With this new targeted promotion California residents can earn some extra points on their credit card spend. Chase Rapid Rewards Credit Card earns 2 points per $1 spent on Southwest purchases and 1 point per $1 spent on all other purchases. With this targeted promotion the earning rate is increased to 2.3X and 1.15X. Not a great earning rate but still something extra if you’re using your Rapid Rewards Credit Card.
