I just received an email from Southwest that states current Southwest Rapid Rewards members can earn up to 2,000 points for referring new members to Southwest Rapid Rewards, with new members earning a 250 point bonus for enrolling. This offer is valid from August 19th to September 19th.
This offer is targeted though I’ve gotten emails for it on several Southwest accounts I manage. For new members to earn the 250 points, you need to signup via the email sent to you by Southwest (on behalf of the referrer) and provide the referral code in the email. For the referrer to earn 500 points, you just need them to signup via the link in the email – that’s it! No other activity is required!
Each referrer can earn up to 2,000 points which means you can only refer 4 people before maxing out this offer. In case anyone is wondering, these bonus points will NOT count toward A-List, A-List Preferred, or Companion Pass qualification. This is a pretty solid offer for both parties as non-members get a small bonus for enrolling in Rapid Rewards while current members get a slightly bigger bonus. I don’t believe there is a current public signup bonus for enrolling in Southwest Rapid Rewards so I think this is the best available offer. Please leave a comment if anyone knows otherwise and I’ll update this post.
If you need a referral, please send me an email at email@example.com or leave a comment (only I will be able to see your email address). Thank you in advance! If I max out at 4 referrals, I will then ask readers to leave their emails in the comments if they are targeted to refer others.
