MilesTalk group mod Sarah flagged to me a new deal slated for this Friday. It targets holders of any Southwest Airlines credit card to get 50X Rapid Rewards points for a $100 purchase – and they qualify for the much-revered Southwest Companion Pass.

Of course, the purchase must be charged to your Southwest credit card!

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

Eligible purchases include both flights and gift cards, so even if you have no flight plans, it’s no problem to just buy a gift card.

I thought it might be targeted but there is a landing page available to anyone with the link.

From the email:

On Friday, June 11, you can earn a total of 50X points on every dollar up to the first $100 you spend in Southwest Airlines® purchases made with your Southwest Rapid Rewards® Credit Card.*

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

*During the one-day promotional period of 6/11/2021 from 12:00:00 AM ET – 11:59 PM E.T., you will qualify and earn a total of 50 points for each $1 spent with any Rapid Rewards Credit Card, on up to $100.00 in total purchases, made directly with Southwest Airlines®, including flight, inflight, Southwest® gift card, Rapid Rewards Points Center, and on Southwest Vacations® packages (“Qualifying Purchases”).

That’s 48 bonus points on top of the 2 points already earned on Qualifying Purchases made with the Rapid Rewards Priority, Premier, Plus or Employee Credit Cards or 47 bonus points on top of the 3 points already earned on Qualifying Purchases made with a Rapid Rewards Performance Business Credit Card or 49 bonus points made with any remaining Rapid Rewards Credit Cards. Qualifying Purchases made on a qualifying Rapid Rewards Credit Card during the Promotion Period are eligible for this offer.

Delays by the merchant, such as shipping, could extend the transaction date beyond the offer period. You’ll earn points on Qualifying Purchases made with your Rapid Rewards® Credit Card by you or an authorized user of the account.

The bonus points will count towards Companion Pass but will not count towards A-List or A-List Preferred qualification.

Please allow up to 8 weeks after the end of the Promotion Period for bonus points to post to your Rapid Rewards account. To qualify for this bonus offer, account must be open and not in default at the time of fulfillment. This bonus offer is non-transferable and applies only to the account of the primary Cardmember referenced in this offer. All Southwest Rapid Rewards Credit Cards are eligible.

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.
