Below is a compiled list of many of the current Southwest point promotions out there. When calculating Southwest bonus points, 60 Rapid Reward points = $1 on a “Wanna Getaway Fare.” For example, a 1,000 point promotion essentially is giving you $16.67 to use towards future travel.
- Between September 15-November 7, earn double points on all travel to/from Baltimore, Denver, or Phoenix. You must register prior to making your reservation. Like almost all Southwest promotions, existing reservations will not earn you the bonus points. If your flight has not gone up in price, it make sense to rebook since there are no change fees with Southwest.
- Through September 30, register to win up to one million points with Southwest’s “enRoll to play YAHTZEE” game. Over the course of the game (which you can play every day), Southwest will be giving away over seven million Rapid Reward points. *The “Win Code for Card” line is option, so you can leave this blank.
- Earn 300 bonus Rapid Reward points by joining the Rapid Rewards Dining program. Within 60 days of joining, you must register a credit/debit card with the program, visit a participating restaurant, spend at least $25, and complete a review of the dining experience within 30 days. This is in addition to the 3 points/$1 you will earn.

- Between October 1, 2011 and January 15, 2012, earn 1,800 Rapid Reward points with every Hyatt stay. This is INSTEAD of receiving Hyatt points. You must register, and provide your Rapid Reward account number upon check-in or call Hyatt (1-88-30-HYATT), and have them change your account to earning miles. The maximum number of points you can earn during this promotion is 18,000 (10 nights).
