I received a promotional email from Southwest today notifying me that 500 bonus points had been deposited to my Rapid Rewards account. Just like those free drink coupons that sometimes come without notice, this was a nice little Southwest perk that brightened up my day. Not sure what the criteria was for getting this bonus (my husband and daughter did not get similar emails), but please share if you got it too!
Text of the email:
With unlimited reward seats and no blackout dates, Rapid Rewards® makes it easy to use your points. In addition, since Southwest Airlines® merged with AirTran® Airways, you have over 95 destinations to visit.
To help you start crossing these destinations off your list, we’ve deposited 500 Rapid Rewards Bonus Points into your account. These bonus points are simply our way of thanking you for your loyalty to Southwest Airlines.
Where will your points take you?
Whether you’re dreaming about the beaches in San Juan, seeing the sights of New York, or climbing mountains in Denver, your next trip could be around the corner. Explore your possibilities with ourDestination Finder.
Quick Tip: If you’re just shy of the points you need to book a flight, you can purchase additional points through the Rapid Rewards Points Center.
We look forward to seeing you on a Southwest® flight soon.
