Gary from View From the Wing notes a Southwest promo for Nationwide Double Points for flights booked and flown between Monday and May 15, 2013.

Per the terms and conditions: From now through May 15, 2013, you can earn double points on every flight you take on Southwest Airlines. You’ll receive 24 points (instead of the standard 12 points) per dollar spent on Business Select Fares, 20 points (instead of ten points) per dollar spent on Anytime Fares, and 12 points (instead of six points) per dollar spent on Wanna Get Away? Fares. There is also a concurrent promo where you can earn double Tier Qualifying points on flights to or from Milwaukee.

You can register for both promos here, and it’s important to note that you must register prior to travel.

That said, if you already have travel booked on Southwest and didn’t register before booking it, you might still get credit because airline promos aren’t always perfect. However, remember that Southwest doesn’t charge change or cancellation fees, so if you want to be sure you will get double points on upcoming travel, check your flights again and see if it might be worth canceling your ticket and rebooking it. If it’s at or near the same price, that would be worth it. Southwest points can be redeemed for up to 2 cents each in value, so do the math and see if it makes sense to pay a little more for a ticket if you’re earning a lot more Rapid Rewards points.

Here are the rest of the Terms & Conditions for both promos:
