I just came across an awesome Southwest offer where if you opt in to receive their Rapid Rewards Email Updates you’ll earn 6,000 Southwest points – worth $90 in Southwest travel! In all my years writing this blog, this might be the quickest and easiest way to earn points, not to mention it is absolutely free! All you have to do register for the emails by September 30, 2018. Unfortunately though this does seem to be an exclusive offer, so you’ll have to check your account to see if you are eligible. My mom was targeted for this offer, but neither my dad nor myself are eligible.
To enroll in the reports, go to the promotions page within your Southwest Rapid Rewards account to see if you see any promotions available to you. If you see the above promotion, you’ll see to sign up for the Rapid Rewards Email Updates here and then register for the promotion in your account.
You’ll then earn 3,000 bonus Southwest Rapid Reward points after receiving the Southwest emails for three months and then another 3,000 points after receiving the emails for an additional three months – six months in total. You also must also open one email every 60 days to receive the points. You’ll then receive the points within 8 weeks after the 3 and 6 month mark. This will definitely take some time to earn the points, so I wouldn’t bank on the points to use for a free trip right away, but definitely a nice surprise bonus that will eventually be added to your account. The terms also state you must have an open Southwest credit card. I am assuming only Southwest credit card holders are eligible (although not all since I have their card), but if you cancel it I assume you’ll no longer be eligible for the bonus points.
