This week, we’re offering the chance to win a $500 Southwest Airlines gift card. Southwest has a limited-time offer to earn 50,000 miles on its Rapid Reward Premier Card after spending $2,000 in the first three months.

Southwest awards are based on paid ticket prices, so it can be tough to pin down an exact cost, but 50,000 points can go quite a long way on Southwest — especially if you’re combining it with a $500 gift card. TPG values Southwest Rapid Rewards points at 1.3 cents apiece, but you can certainly squeeze more value out of your points if you keep yours eyes peeled for a good flight.

Earn 50,000 points with the Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Premier card.

You must enter the giveaway below no later than 11:59pm ET on Monday, September 7.
