Southwest is offering double Rapid Rewards points on all flights into or out of Boston, Manchester, Providence, Orlando, Newark and LaGuardia between January 4 and February 15th. Register here. The bonuses don’t count toward Elite qualification or Companion Pass.
You’ll get 24 points (instead of the standard 12 points) per dollar spent on Business Select Fares, 20 points (instead of 10 points) per dollar spent on Anytime Fares, and 12 points (instead of six points) on Wanna Get Away? Fares.
This can be pretty lucrative for A+ members. As someone on Flyertalk points out, a $900 Business Select ticket will earn you 32,400 points, which is enough for a $324 Amazon gift card. Consider this promo to be a 36% rebate in the form of Amazon gift cards.
You must book your travel by December 30th to qualify.
