20% Off Southwest Rapid Rewards Award Tickets

From now through September 17th, you can save 20% on award tickets booked with your Southwest Rapid Rewards points.

You must travel by October 31st, 2020 for the discount to apply and you’ll need to enter code SAVE20NOW when you book.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

Since Southwest Rapid Rewards offer a semi-fixed redemption based on the cost of the ticket, you normally get around 1.4 – 1.5 cents per point. With this deal, though, you’ll get more like 1.7-1.8 cents per point, which could tip the scales on deciding if you should transfer your Chase Ultimate Rewards into your Southwest account for an award vs. booking via the portal.

As it’s Southwest, you can also cancel your award if you need to without penalty.

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
