A few days ago it was United, yesterday it was American, and today it is Southwest’s turn for a shopping portal bonus. With this promotion, you are able to earn up to 1,200 bonus points. Through November 23, 2014, you can earn the following bonus based on the amount you spend through the portal:
So if you spend $700 through the portal you can get the full bonus of 1,200 Rapid Reward points. Quite honestly though, this isn’t a great offer as 1,200 Rapid Reward points only equals about $17. The United and American ones give you 500 points (although targeted offers) which can be valued at around $8, but only requires $75 in spend, not $700!!
With that being said, if Southwest is offering the highest payout for your desired online merchant, then getting the extra bonus points is great. I would just make sure to compare the payouts to other online shopping portals and make sure that you are still getting the highest number of points with the bonus included.
