750 FREE SOUTHWEST POINTS
WHAT TO DO:
Simply enroll and receive 250 Bonus Points
Now, if you really want to jump start your new account. Southwest offers a 50,000 Bonus Points for their Southwest Rapid Rewards Plus credit card. This is an excellent bonus offer if you don’t have this card already. Southwest markets that offer as “2 free flights” but depending upon how you redeem these points you could get many more flights than that. Here is the award chart
Here are a few examples of maximizing these points are short haul flights.
Only 3,480 SFO to LAS
Nice trip from LAX to PHX – 8,400 points plus $5
Nice trip from LAX to LAS only 4,980 plus $5 ROUNDTRIP
So let’s just say you use all your points for flights like the LAX to LAS (similar to short hauls in your area) for 4,980. That would be 10 flights. The cost to you $5 x 10 = $50.
Other benefits include:
- 2 free checked bags
- Unlimited reward seats
- No black out dates
- Points never expire as long as you have qualifying activity within 24 months. Only need 1 point to keep points from expiring. You can always buy something small from the shopping mall or grab from free points from promotions they run through the year. (Don’t worry I’ll always keep you up-to-date on those)
- No change fees. If you cancel your reward travel reservation before the flight, the points will be immediately redeposited in your account. If you do not cancel the reservation and miss a flight, the unused points will be credited back to your account in three to four days. Awesome policy!
