There are A LOT of credit card promotions going on right now!
While it’s a tad confusing, it’s good for the consumer, because it’s allowing us to earn MANY more points than usual on things we are spending more on right now.
In addition to other Southwest card promotions, which we list below, you can now earn 5X points on ALL Southwest purchases on ALL Southwest credit cards through August and September.
About the 5X Points Southwest Card Promotion
This promotion runs through September 30, 2020.
You can earn 5X points on Southwest purchases up to $2,000 each month for both August and September.
Southwest purchases include:
- Southwest gift card purchased through Southwest
- Rapid Rewards points purchases
- In-flight purchases
- Flight purchases
- Southwest Vacation packages
You DO need to register for this offer, which you can do HERE.
It can take up to 8 weeks for the points to credit your account.
These points DO qualify for the Southwest Companion Pass, which lets 1 person fly free with you through the end of the FOLLOWING year, but they DO NOT qualify for A-List or A-List Preferred status.
Combine this with the promotion to earn DOUBLE points on paid Southwest flights through Aug. 31 and you could earn 17 points per $1 on Wanna Get Away fares (normally 6X points + double points + 5X points using your credit card).
This may be a good opportunity to pay for a flight in advance and simply change it as needed until you’re ready to go, especially because fares are low right now and experts are predicting fares will rise next year.
Additionally, you have the opportunity to earn up to 25,000 “bonus” points on Southwest card spending right now, which you can also stack. Note: Bonus points do not qualify for the Companion Pass.
