This contest has ended. Check out this post for current Southwest Sweepstakes.
Southwest’s California Millions contest is back! While unfortunately, it’s just for those who live in California, if you do live there you have a great chance of earning some extra Southwest points.
If you don’t live in California, they have set up a contest for a giveaway of 100,000 Southwest points that you can enter here by April 10, 2018.
To play California Millions, you will need to live in California, be at least 18 and have a Southwest Rapid Rewards account number.
Next, you will need to register here to be eligible to play any of the below games.
How to Play California Millions
You get one entry per day (midnight to 11:58 p.m. constitutes a “day”) through April 10, and you can score an additional entry by sharing one friend’s email per day. Each day at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Southwest will randomly select one winner to win a set number of Rapid Rewards points that varies each day but ranges from 20,000 to 1,000,000 points.
Return to the SWACaliforniaMillions.com site each day to “spin” the prize wheel for a chance at earning Southwest points.
This contest ends April 10, 2018 at 11:58 p.m. Pacific Time.
Attend a Southwest Event
You can also win prizes by attending one of seven Southwest events held in Sacramento, San Jose, Los Angeles, San Diego and Oakland. At the events, you may physically spin a prize wheel to see if you win a prize. Prizes include between 5,000 and 10,000 Southwest points, as well as Southwest sunglasses and tote bags.
