This is just a quick reminder that the last day to register for the Southwest/Starwood promotion is tomorrow, October 15. This is actually a great promotion, that takes no additional effort (aside from registering of course) and where you can earn BOTH SPG and Soutwest points. This is a promotion that actually allows double-dipping, which is great!
Between August 1 and December 15, for every stay at a Sheraton, Four Points, Aloft, and Element Hotels in North America, you will earn 1,000 Southwest Rapid Reward points. With the cut and dry Southwest Rapid Rewards system, 1,000 points will get you $16.67 towards a “Wanna Get Away” Fare.
I still have not received my 1,000 bonus points from a stay in mid-September, but the terms & conditions do state: “Bonus Rapid Rewards Points will post to the Member’s Rapid Rewards account 6–8 weeks after the end of the promotion period if not earlier.”
