Top Rapid Rewards Shopping Deals to Earn Southwest Points
Looking for the best Southwest Rapid Rewards Shopping deals to earn even MORE points for FREE flights? Rapid Rewards Shopping is one of the BEST ways to earn Southwest points that also qualify for the Southwest Companion Pass. Not all points qualify but most do!
It allows you to earn points on purchases you would already be making for NO additional cost. And sometimes you can score a bank of points just for a cheap subscription to a newspaper, website or email!
Here is a list, updated weekly, of the top points-earning opportunities on the portal.
My Assessment for the Week
Most of the same great deals from last week are still hanging around, including: Barron’s at 700 points at only $1 for eight weeks and The Economist at 1,100 points for 12 weeks for $12.
Motley Fool is still a good deal (to me) and can earn you 3,600 points for a two-month subscription to their Stock Advisor newsletter at $19/month.
Old Navy is offering 3 points per $1, which is great for back-to-school clothes purchases, which I know most families are starting to think about with school start dates just around the corner.
Hulu is still available to earn 1,100 points for a minimum $7.99 monthly subscription. There is no mention of a minimum amount of time you need to subscribe. We already have Hulu and really enjoy it for watching existing TV shows, as well as Hulu-produced TV shows, and movies.
Check back every week for the best deals! This list is updated through July 12, 2018.
The Rapid Rewards Shopping Portal
The Rapid Rewards Shopping Portal lets you earn “free” points by starting online shopping at the portal and then clicking through to a specific retailer’s website.
Generally these offers allow you to earn a set number of points per dollar spent.
You can also earn a set number of points not dependent on the dollar amount on a variety of items, which include print and digital newspaper and magazine subscriptions, one-time product purchases like 23andMe genetic testing kits or even subscriptions to Weight Watchers, Blue Apron meal preparation program or CBS All Access.
Here you can get step-by-step instructions for how to use the Rapid Rewards Shopping Portal to ensure you never miss a point!
If you accumulate 110,000 qualifying Southwest points (anything marked as “bonus” points in the portal do NOT qualify but can be used for free travel), you can earn the Southwest Companion Pass, which lets one person fly free with up for up to two years.
