Southwest launched their new Rapid Rewards 2.0 program on March 1 and things didn’t get so smoothly. Users were locked out of their accounts for days and phone reps don’t seem to be fully trained and unable to resolve issues. However, it seems like they are back to regularly scheduled programming and are offering 250 points when you sign up for an account.
They don’t seem to advertise this on the site, but when you create a new account here and use promotion code GNAVRPDRWDS , it will start with 250 points. 250 is the equivalent of $2-$4 in airfare, depending on the type of fare you redeem for. Not earth shattering, but better than nothing!
