For anyone that has been holding out on creating a Southwest Rapids Rewards account, now is the time to do so! If you don’t have an account yet you can earn 2,500 Rapid Rewards points by enrolling in the program.
You’ll get 2,000 bonus points for enrolling, 250 bonus points signing up for the Rapid Rewards Report email summary, and another 250 bonus points for signing up for the Rapid Rewards email update. The offer is only available for new Rapid Rewards members.
2,500 Rapid Rewards points are worth ~$40 or half of the points needed for a one-way ticket from PDX to LAX if redeemed at the ‘Wanna Get Away’ fare level.
Currently you can redeem Rapid Rewards points for Wanna Get Away fares at a value of 1.67 cents per point (60 points = $1 worth of ). However, starting March 31, 2014, Rapid Rewards points will be devalued to 1.4 cents per point (70 points per $1).
The fine print says that you have to stay subscribed for at least three months to receive the 500 bonus points from the email subscriptions. Your Rapid Rewards points won’t expire as long as you have account activity every 24 months.
