Details

In order to keep your Rapid Rewards® account active, you must earn qualifying Rapid Rewards points at least once every 24 months. Points will remain active as long as you have at least one qualifying earning activity every 24 months. Qualifying earning activities include: 1) completed travel on Southwest® qualifying flights, (2) points earned from our Rapid Rewards Partners and posted to Member’s account prior to the expiration date, (3) points purchased through Southwest.com, and (4) gifted/transferred/donated points received and claimed by the recipient. Gifted/Transferred/Donated points are a Qualifying Activity for the recipient only. Examples of activities that do not count as Qualifying Activities include but are not limited to: cancelled trips; nonrevenue travel such as Reward or Companion Pass travel; for the donating Member, points donated by a Member to a charity; and other travel such as charter flights, service-charged, reduce-rate, trade out, extra seat, and paper tickets.

Member should allow four to six weeks or such time as is otherwise specified for points to post from qualifying earning activity.

The Member's account expiration date will be 24 months from the date of the last qualifying earning activity. If a Member fails to have any qualifying earning activity in 24 months, the Member's account will become inactive and all points, awards, rewards, and promotional incentives will be forfeited.

 All Rapid Rewards rules and regulations apply.
