Southwest Airlines Deal: Earn 50x Points (Today Only)

Southwest Airlines Deal: Earn 50x Points (Today Only)

4

If you have a co-branded Southwest Airlines credit card, this is most definitely an offer you should take advantage of. Today only (Friday), those with a Chase Southwest Card can earn 50x Rapid Rewards points on Southwest purchases:

  • You’re capped at earning 50x points on $100 worth of spending (for a total of 5,000 points); note that those 50x points include the 2-3x base points you’d usually earn for purchases with Southwest, so you’re really earning 47-48x bonus points
  • This promotion is valid between 12:00AM and 11:59PM ET on Friday, June 11, 2021
  • Purchases made directly with Southwest Airlines qualify, including flight purchases, inflight purchases, Southwest gift card purchase, Rapid Rewards purchases, and Southwest Vacations packages
  • There’s no registration required, and bonus points will post within eight weeks

For anyone who is eligible for the offer, you absolutely should take advantage of it. The easiest thing to do is to just purchase a $100 Southwest Airlines gift card, and then you’ll earn a total of 5,000 points for doing so.

Rapid Rewards points can be redeemed for 1.2 cents each towards the cost of a Southwest flight (they used to be worth more, but Southwest recently devalued them), so that’s like getting $60 worth of points for a $100 gift card, which is excellent.

Bottom line

Today only (Friday), Southwest Airlines is offering 50x points on the first $100 spent on Southwest Airlines purchases, for those with a Chase Southwest card. This is an offer that’s definitely worth taking advantage of if you fly the airline with any frequency, and I’d view it as getting 60% off $100 worth of spending. With that kind of a deal it’s worth pre-paying for some flights, if you ask me.

Will you take advantage of this Southwest offer?

    I have 2 SWA cards: the Priority and the Plus. Does this promo apply to the card or the RR member?

    I think the Chase SW cards are offering 6x points on SW purchases at the moment as well (targeted bonus, I believe). Obviously still a good deal to get 5k points essentially for free, but that does further reduce the "50x" bonus.

    Can this be done using multiple cards?

    Chase confirmed that you can stack personal and business cards. 10k Max potential.
