Our Verdict

It says you have to do step one and step two, step two should show up after entering your details on the first page. Keep in mind this offer does contain targeted language and requires being a Rapid Rewards credit cardholder, my guess is that this will be enforced but it’s difficult to know for sure (update: looks like it’s erroring out for some people. If it doesn’t error out for you I suspect you’ll actually get the points). After registering you should be able to see if it’s attached to your account (My Rapid Rewards -> Promotions).

6,000 Southwest points is $76.8 so this is a great deal if you can get it.

Obviously you mentioned it was targeted but here is the error I got. “We are unable to register you for this promotion. Please contact a Southwest Airlines Customer Service Representative for assistance at 1-800-I-FLY-SWA (1-800-435-9792). (SW900001-DY5DzYr3T9mIf42qrK6MAw)”

Ditto — irritating as…. Happens I have two SW credit cards presently too.

ps, semi-related note, I’ve been pleasantly surprised to be discovering lots of award space on AA and especially United this summer. (hmmmm…. my luv for SWA cooling)

No dice. Tried my wife’s account and my own. 6000 points is a VERY generous bonus for signing up for a newsletter. Bummer.

I had the promotion in my SW account. I clicked to register, but then never say any confirmation page for Step 2.

I didn’t get the email, but it says the signup was successful. We’ll see if my points actually post. Make sure you’re logged into your Rapid Rewards account before you click on the link.

Dont have a rapid rewards account. Are there other sign up promotions or is this worth a shot to sign up for even if it doesnt work?

Worked for my wife’s and daughter’s accounts but not mine. Thank you!

I called customer service like the error said and the reps and their managers had no idea about the promotion. Told me to call the corporate office tomorrow haha

I was already subscribed. I went ahead and unsubscribed and will check back later to see if I can register for the promotion at a later time. I tried to register right after unsubscribing but no dice. Maybe it will let me later

Subscribed, no error, no 3000 just yet. The promotion did appear under my Promotions tab, however. I haven’t used SW in a while and am going overseas, but will probably use them after 4 years.
