Get Ready to Score Big! Southwest Airlines Launches Anniversary Bonus Promotion for Cardholders

Hey, hey, hey! Southwest Airlines has some exciting news for its cardholders! The airline is launching an anniversary bonus promotion, and you, my friend, might be in for a real treat!

So, here’s the deal: if you’re a Southwest credit cardholder, you can head over to, enter your name and Rapid Rewards number, and check for your bonus. It’s that simple!

However, some cardholders have reported seeing an error message, which means they aren’t eligible for the Southwest anniversary bonus. But don’t worry, there are still plenty of bonuses up for grabs!

Between March 1 and April 30, cardholders can choose their bonus from a selection of options, including tier qualifying points toward A-List status, companion pass qualifying points, or bonus points. And the best part? The longer you’ve been a Southwest cardholder, the more points you’ll get! We’re talking anywhere from 250 to 2,000 points. The most generous offers seem to be reserved for those who have been loyal Southwest cardholders for 20-plus years.

Now, let’s break it down. If you choose tier qualifying points, it’ll count toward your A-List or A-List Preferred status, but not toward your companion pass qualification. On the other hand, if you choose companion pass qualifying points, it’ll count toward your companion pass, but not toward your A-List or A-List Preferred status. And if you opt for bonus points, they’ll just be regular points, but hey, points are always a good thing!

One thing to keep in mind is that it may take up to eight weeks for your bonus to appear in your account. But trust us, it’ll be worth the wait! According to The Points Guy, Southwest Rapid Rewards points are worth 1.5 cents apiece, which means 250 points are worth $3.75, and 2,000 points are worth a cool $30!

And that’s not all! Some Southwest cardholders have received an extra gift via email: a discount code for 20% off a reservation made for short-notice travel. So, if you’re feeling spontaneous and want to take advantage of this offer, you’ll need to book your travel with points and make sure it occurs within 14 days of booking.

So, there you have it, folks! If you’re a Southwest cardholder, head on over to to check for your bonus. And if you’re not a Southwest cardholder, well, what are you waiting for? Sign up now and get in on the action!
