I just got an email from Southwest about a new bonus points offer and although the language seems like it might be targeted, it pointed me to a registration page so you might as well try and register if you have any Southwest flights coming up.

From November 3 through December 22, you can earn bonus points on every flight you take on Southwest Airlines.  You will receive six bonus points per dollar spent on Business Select Fares, five bonus points per dollar spent on Anytime Fares, and three bonus points per dollar spent on Wanna Get Away Fares.  Check out the example chart below to see how many points you can earn on each fare!

Fare Type Business Select Fare Anytime Fare Wanna Get Away Fare
Sample Fare $250  $200 $100
Standard Points + Bonus Points 12 + 6 = 18 10 + 5 = 15 6 + 3 = 9
Points Earned per Dollar $250 x 18 $200 x 15 $100 x 9
Total Points Earned = 4,500 = 3,000 = 90

    If I already purchased a ticket that falls in that time period, is there any way to get the points? I checked and the flight is sold out, so I’m not willing to risk rebooking…

You will receive 12 bonus points per dollar spent on Business Select Fares, 10 bonus points per dollar spent on Anytime Fares, and six bonus points per dollar spent on Wanna Get Away Fares. With an offer like this, you’ll be on your way to reward travel and A-List status in double-time!
