About Rapid Rewards

A reward flight is just one of the many rewards waiting for you when you're a Rapid Rewards® Member. We've made it easier than ever to earn points when you fly, participate with our Partners, and with the Rapid Rewards Points Center, get the points you need to enjoy those rewards even faster.

Program overview

The Rapid Rewards® program is designed around a simple concept – make earning reward flights faster and easier. Whether you’re earning points or redeeming for a flight, nothing should come between you and your favorite destination.

  • Unlimited reward seats.

    Say Yes to reward seats on days ending in “y”. That’s Transfarency®.

     
  • No blackout dates.

    No blackout dates means your choices and possibilities for travel are wide open.

     
  • Your points don't expire*.

    *Points don’t expire as long as you have flight-earning or partner-earning activity at least once every 24 months. Period.

     

     
  • Earning points is easy.

    Rapid Rewards® makes it easy to earn points you can use for reward flights to go anywhere we fly. Not only will you earn points on flights, you can also earn points on everyday purchases with our partners.

     

     
  • Redeem for flights and more.

    With the More Rewards program, Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® Members and Rapid Rewards Credit Cardmembers can use Rapid Rewards points for gift cards, merchandise, international flights on global carriers, hotel stays, and rental cars. Rapid Rewards Credit Cardmembers can also enjoy exclusive Cardmember experiences.
