10 Ways to Earn Southwest Points
1. Vinesse Wines – 1,400 Points
This is a monthly wine subscription service that costs roughly $42 for six wines.
2. 23andMe – 700 Points
I have to admit I am intrigued by this service, as I’ve been listening to their commercials on the radio. 23andMe is a genetic test that reveals what your DNA says about your health, traits and ancestry. Cost ranges between $99-$199.
Most of these offers are only good with new subscriptions and you CANNOT use any other promo codes or discounts aside from the ones offered by the Rapid Rewards Shopping Portal.
