1) If you have the Chase Southwest credit card, just watch this 2.5 minute video and enter your Rapid Rewards and credit card number at the end. This is quasi-targeted, but most people are reporting success. It’s a relatively little risk for up to $16.66 towards Wanna Get Away fares! Unfortunately you can’t let the video just play, you need to keep clicking on “Proceed.” (PS: the video extols the benefits of international flight rewards, but that generally is not a good redemption value in my opinion).

Sign-up page once you get to the end of the video. Have your Rapid Rewards and Southwest credit card handy

2) Sign-up for Southwest newsletters and remain subscribed for 3 months in order to get 500 points.

3) Not necessarily free, but Southwest is offering double points when you fly to/from Baltimore/Washington, Denver and Phoenix.
