Rapid Rewards Shopping Deals

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.
