250 Point Enrollment Bonus for Southwest Rapid Rewards Sign Up

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!

    The link doesn’t seem to be working correctly.

  • StarChaser

    The link itself doesn’t seem to work, but if you enter the text at the end of it as a promotion code, it gives you the 250 points. I just used it to sign up. For convienence, the text is:

    I tried to enroll my wife. Couldn’t figure it. Not worth it anyway since we only fly 3-4 times a year. Jet Blue or Kayak usually does better.

    Thanks the Points Guy!

    @Dan lee: it’s very easy. Simply go to Southwest homepage and mouse over Rapid Rewards and click Enroll. Fill out your info and then copy and paste GNAVRPDRWDS where it asks for promotional code at the bottom of the page.

    just used the code and got it 12/2/11 –
    @Michaelbrent1982 – no one is a bozo, you get additional points with the code on top of the 250 for setting up.

  • Bashbash2ooo

    Still works Thanx I just signed my mom up a few minutes ago I put GNAVRPDRWDS in the promotional code box and it works without a single problem..Give 250 pts automatically for signing up..

  • Chopper

    Still working as of 1/5/2012. Also, if you subscribe to the Rapid Rewards Report and Rapid Rewards Email Updates on your communication preferences, they will give you an extra 250 points for each (500 points total). The caveat is that you have to stay subscribed for 3 months, I think.

    Interesting… They site says nothing about points when you sign up, so wether you get point or not for signing up in addition to these points is not clear. However, I blame southwest for not telling you ahead of time the offer they give you without the code. So I am not a fan of simply giving affilate credits away, but I think the points-guy earns the credits by making clear that you are getting the 250 pts.
