For those in long-distance relationships, you know how quickly airfares can add up when traveling back and forth to see your significant other. Points can help ease that burden and make it easier to maintain the relationship.
Chase, through their Southwest Rapid Rewards Credit Card program, and TPG have partnered to celebrate romance this Valentine’s Day by giving away 50,000 Rapid Rewards points to five lucky readers. Those points are worth $750 according to TPG’s most recent valuations and could help a couple get round-trip flights to any one of a number of amazing Southwest destinations — what’s more romantic than a surprise getaway to somewhere like the Bahamas or Costa Rica?
Entering is easy. All you have to do is leave a comment on this Facebook post with a Southwest destination you’d travel to for a romantic getaway using 50,000 Rapid Rewards Points. Don’t forget to tag your loved one, too! We’ll be picking a winner on Friday (February 16), so be sure to submit your entries by 11:59pm ET tomorrow (February 15).
