[HI only] Create Southwest Rapid Rewards Account – Get 5,000 Points [Update: Points Deducted]

Update 6/10/19: Points have been automatically deducted from all accounts, you now need to e-mail SWAaloha@wnco.com by July 31st, 2019 (wnco is an e-mail domain that Southwest frequently uses).

The Offer

No direct link to offer, account creation page is here

  • New customers that create a Southwest Rapid Rewards account for the first time with an address in Hawaii are being awarded a 5,000 point sign up bonus

The Fine Print

  • Limit one per household
  • Log out/in to see the points

Our Verdict

Somewhat strange that Southwest is offering this bonus but not advertising it. I guess it’s to try and encourage those in Hawaii to sign up due to Southwest flying there now. Yesterday we saw the sign up bonuses on the Chase Southwest cards increased to to 60,000 points as well. Anyway, this is a fantastic deal if you live in Hawaii and don’t already have a Southwest account. You can always redeem 4,050 points for a $25 gift card if you have no intention of ever flying Southwest, although you’ll find the points much more valuable if you do fly Southwest.

For those of you who didn’t originally get points, check those accounts again. After the audit, they apparently also gave points to those who didn’t get them

I still have my points. I signed up on 5/3 using my family’s Hawaii address. It took awhile to post to my account, though.

I had no problems receiving 5k reward points. I actually redeemed close to 3k for an interisland flight in september.

doc, the statement “Points have been automatically deducted from all accounts…” is false. My points are still in my account and have been since day one (see my previous posts). I haven’t had to email anyone about the points or submit a utility bill either. Either way, thanks for the heads up.

My 5K bonus points were cancelled on 05/23. Just received an email from Southwest saying I have to provide utility bill with HI address to have them reinstated

I applied with my Hawaii PO Box and did not get any points. I called costumer service and they told me you cant use a PO Box. They changed it to my physical address and they informed me it would take up to 72 hours. If not, call back and they will fix. this was on 3 May, no points as of 6 May. Ill give it a couple more days.

3 accounts. First one got points, other two did not. I even tried using a Hawaii proxy server on the third one… no dice yet

30 accounts here, got points on 8. Seems even legit people applying for their first time aren’t getting their 5k. Somethings wonky.
