While we’re all trying to avoid going out right now unless absolutely necessary, someone in your family MAY need to see a doctor for all kinds of reasons from spring allergies and sinus infections to a bee sting to the flu.
But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending that people instead call or virtually chat with a physician rather than risk leaving the house and entering a potentially germ-filled environment like a doctor’s office, urgent care center or emergency room. Visiting an online doctor can provide much needed help without the risk.
Did you know there’s a way to earn 1,800 Southwest points, which you can collect to book future free flights, when you join a telehealth plan that offers a free online doctor service?
The telehealth plan, :DP HealthNow, which is powered by DentalPlans.com, is available for purchase in the Southwest Rapid Rewards Shopping Portal. The plan gives you 24/7 access to free, unlimited virtual doctor’s visits, as well as a variety of other benefits. How cool!
You can earn points on something you NEED now, but will no doubt still be loving later, as well, when we’re all back to traveling once again.

How to Earn 1,800 Southwest Points When You Purchase the Membership
Southwest is currently offering 1,800 points when you sign up for :DP HealthNow through DentalPlans.com by starting in the Southwest Rapid Rewards Shopping Portal.
Here’s how to earn the points:
1. Simply go to https://rapidrewardsshopping.southwest.com/ and log in using your Southwest Rapid Rewards account information
2. Search for “DentalPlans.com” in the portal and select it
3. Next, click the Shop Now button, which brings you to the DentalPlans.com homepage (this registers your “cookies” with Southwest)
Important: Be sure to use OUR link rather than searching for the plan after you click through from the portal. By first going to DentalPlans.com through the portal, Southwest will register your cookies, which qualifies you to earn your Southwest points after your purchase through the :DP HealthNow membership page. So come back HERE and use THIS LINK to access the RIGHT plan and complete your purchase.
Also, remember DO NOT use any promo codes (including the 25% off promo code) or that will disqualify you from earning your Southwest points.
You also will need to be a NEW DentalPlans.com plan member in order to qualify to earn the Southwest points. If you’re a previous plan member, go ahead and use the 25% discount promo code we shared above, since you can’t collect the points anyway! 🙂
We think this is a great way to earn a BUNCH of Southwest points AND get some very convenient, much-needed health care during this unusual time! And, what a great membership to have while you travel all over the U.S. in the future.
Let us know if you take advantage!
