By shopping through Southwest’s shopping portal, you can earn up to an additional 3,000 bonus Southwest Rapid Rewards points! This is a great offer that runs through November 20, 2016 and especially good if you are shopping online anyways! Earn the following bonus based on the amount you spend through the portal:
So if you spend $1,000 through the portal you can get the full bonus of 2,500 Rapid Reward points. Quite honestly though, this is a lot of spend, but if you are in the market for an online shopping over the next few weeks anyways, you might as well get the extra points! The 3,000 bonus points is worth approximately $45 towards a “Wanna Getaway” fare.
With online shopping portals, it literally tacks on an extra few minutes to complete your online shopping. Once you get to the shopping portal site, you search for the merchants name, and then click the orange “Shop Now” button or just the merchants picture logo. It will then redirect you to the merchants online website where you will complete your shopping as you normally would. It is ultimately taking you to the exact same website with an extra step in the meantime.
Remember, points earned from the Southwest Rapid Rewards shopping portal count towards the Southwest Airlines Companion Pass, however, typically bonus points earned (like this 3,000 point promo) do NOT count.
