Double Southwest Points… but Targeted

This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here. Additionally, some of the offers on this page may no longer be available through Deals We Like.

Between April 7-27, 2015 targeted accounts will receive double points on ALL Southwest flights. I am not sure why such a short time frame, but if you are eligible and have a flight between these 20 days this is a great promotion. The one kicker, however, is that you must register for the promotion PRIOR to booking your flight. Now, if you’ve already booked your flight and the price has not increased, you can cancel your flight and re-book – just make sure to not change the flight as you will need a new reservation number. This offer also includes Double Tier Qualifying Points which will help you with your A-List or A-List Preferred status.

With this promotion you will earn the following points:

  • Wanna Get Away Fares: 12 points per dollar spent (instead of 6 points)
  • Anytime Fares: 20 points per dollar spent (instead of 10 points)
  • Business Select Fares: 24 points per dollar spent (instead of 12 points)

If you were contemplating using points for future travel instead of paying for the flight, I’d suggest paying for it. Keep in mind though you will not have the same perks if you need to cancel the flight or if the cost of the flight goes down in price.

While this targeted offer went out via email, you can check to see if you are eligible by trying to register here. If you are eligible you’ll receive this screen and the registration button.

Southwest Double PointsI really hope Southwest does a mass double points promotion for all members for a much longer timeframe! This is a typical promotion for them so I am disappointed to see it so targeted and to last less than 3 weeks.
