You can keep your Southwest Rapid Rewards account active, earn points for the Southwest Companion Pass and fly free for up to two years, get a tasty meal, and pick up 1,000 Rapid Rewards points fast! Here’s how to get 1,000 Southwest points for dining out.
1,000 Southwest Points for Dining Out
You can get 1,000 Southwest points in a few minutes when you join the Rapid Rewards Dining program by June 12, 2016. Four quick steps:
- Join Rapid Rewards Dining by June 12, 2016
- Spend $25 or more at a participating restaurant within 30 days
- Pay with registered credit or debit card
- Complete 5 question online review within 30 days of meal
When you eat at participating restaurants you earn 3 Southwest point for every $1 you spend.
But remember to register a card that isn’t registered with another dining program. Because you can’t double dip dining programs.
So don’t enroll the same card that you used to get 5,000 United Miles and elite status.
How to Get 1,000 Southwest Points Fast
1. Buy Gift Cards
Not planning on eating out soon? You can buy gift cards from Rapid Rewards restaurants to use later or give as gifts for graduation, Father’s Day, teacher’s, birthdays, etc.
2. Use Other People’s Money
Pick up the tab when you go out with friends. Or even better, ask for the cash.
From my Extreme Mile and Point Collecting post, if someone is paying with cash, ask if you can put it on your credit card. You get the miles and don’t have to spend the money to get the bonus!
