Puntos Puntos Puntos. That’s points and lots of ‘em…as in 2,000! That’s right, for the first time, starting June 9th, Rapid Rewards members will have the chance to earn points for flights completed on partner airline, Volaris!
Rapid Reward members who register at http://www.southwest.com/rapidrewards/promotions can earn 2,000 points for a roundtrip itinerary between many of Southwest’s U.S. airports and all of the Volaris Mexican gateway airports when booked at southwest.com between June 9 and July 31, 2011 for flights flown until September 30, 2011.
These bonus points will be in addition to the points which will already be earned for flying on the Southwest portion of the itinerary. Ever since the international connections to Mexico rolled out last November we’ve wanted to add a Rapid Rewards feature to the product so that our loyal domestic travelers could be converted to loyal international adventurers! Now that the “All New Rapid Rewards” program began in March the prospects for points has become a reality, albeit for a limited time! If our Customers show support for this short term accrual opportunity our hope is that we can bring it back again and then of course add a redemption component in the future as well.
So if you’re debating whether to book at Southwest.com to attend your niece’s quinceanera party in Morelia, visit your grandmother in Zacatecas or find the best Mole to eat in Mexico City then think of the points…er Puntos Puntos Puntos!
