Southwest Airlines regularly hosts contests and sweepstakes that you can enter to win points or free trips.
They generally rotate each month and have included trips to destinations all over the world from New Orleans to Paris, and they often send winners to festivals and special events. Lately, they’ve been sending flyers to the Caribbean!
April’s opportunity is live with the chance to win a Nassau, Bahamas vacation at the all-inclusive Riu Palace Paradise Island.
How to Enter the Southwest Sweepstakes
All you have to do to enter the Southwest sweepstakes is go HERE (if you have trouble with this link, right click and choose “open link in new tab”), view the current contest and then fill out the form, which asks for your name, email, zip code, phone and preferred airport.
You can only enter once, and you must be 21 and a legal resident of the U.S. (excluding Alaska) and Washington, D.C.
Any points earned through a Southwest contest are usually bonus points, so they would NOT qualify for the points you need to earn the Southwest Companion Pass, which lets one person fly free with you for up to two years.
Choose from Priority ($149 annual fee and the BEST card if you fly Southwest frequently), Premier ($99 annual fee) or Plus ($69 annual fee). I lay out the benefits/drawbacks of all three of these cards here and here is my FULL REVIEW on the Southwest Priority Visa card.
