Southwest is turning 50 years old and its newest promotion allows Southwest credit cardholders to earn 50x points per $1, up to 5,000 total bonus miles, with relative ease! While the promotion is limited to just 1 day only, it shouldn’t be too difficult to maximize for those that are looking to earn some extra Southwest Rapid Rewards points. Here are all of the details:

Earn Up to 5,000 Southwest Rapid Rewards Points

Image Credit: Southwest

The 50th anniversary of Southwest Airlines is this month, and to celebrate Southwest is offering credit cardholders the ability to earn 50x points on every dollar up to the first $100 you spend in Southwest Airlines purchases made with your Southwest Rapid Rewards credit card, for a total of 5,000 Rapid Rewards points — worth $65 based on our valuations.

This is a 1-day promotion that lasts from June 11, 2021, from 12:00:00 AM EST to 11:59 PM EST. Qualifying purchases include those made directly with Southwest Airlines (including flight and inflight purchases), Southwest gift cards, Rapid Rewards Points Center, and on Southwest Vacations packages.

Southwest Cards Eligible for the Promotion

Fortunately, all of the Southwest co-branded credit cards are eligible for this 50x promotion, including one of our favorites — the Southwest Rapid Rewards® Priority Credit Card!

This promotion also comes at a perfect time for anyone who has recently taken advantage of the increased welcome bonus offers on the personal Southwest credit cards.

Final Thoughts

It is not every day that an airline gives you the opportunity to earn 50x points per dollar spent. So, if you’re a Southwest credit cardholder, and are planning on summer travel with Southwest anyway, this 50th Anniversary promotion is a perfect time to rack up an extra 5,000 Rapid Rewards points!
