Southwest Airlines will be featured on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today as a part of Ellen’s 12 Days of Giveaways. Southwest Airlines enrolled everyone in  her studio audience in the Rapid Rewards program and gave them enough credits for a free roundtrip flight to any city Southwest serves! I’m thinking those folks will now be loyal Southwest Rapid Rewards Members! We are also giving a special Rapid Rewards treat to anyone who views the show and visits: www.southwest.com/ellen.

We appear at the very end of the show so set your recording device to make sure you don’t miss us! Please check your local listings for exact time and channel.

Check out a clip of Ellen giving away prizes here: http://ellen.warnerbros.com/2009/12/the_gifts_get_bigger_as_12_day.php

(hint: we're at the end!)

What if you're a member of rapid rewards already? The links just go to new enroll new rapid rewards accounts. Can I still get some bonus credits from Ellen's giveaway?

Good going guys on Ellen's show. 25 years ago I went to Aruba, airfare 199.00, talked so much about Aruba to everyone I met, now airfar is out of reach. Now the same thing with Southwest, I tell everyone who flies to go SW, prices are great, people are wonderful, and I can still afford to see my family, Now you advertised on Ellen , everyone will know how great you are. SW always arrives ahead of time. I can't thank you enough for your airlines

Come on Southwest- I watched the Dec 10th Ellen show. I've been a rapid rewards member for years. Can I get free points added to my account as well?

Hi Margo! This was a special one-time deal with The Ellen Show, but we've got a great promotion for current Rapid Rewards Members going on now for any flights to our current Florida destinations. Check it out here: http://www.southwest.com/rapid_rewards/rr_promotions.html#florida

Lindsey, The pst above said the following : We are also giving a special Rapid Rewards treat to anyone who views the show and visits: www.southwest.com/ellen. So us loyal members followed Ms Rogers instructions and discover we were not included. So what's the deal? Kevin

Hey Kevin, You're right, the Ellen promotion was only for new Rapid Rewards Members. We haven't forgot you guys--I can promise there's always another Rapid Rewards promotion around the corner! I'm sure you already saw our Florida one going on now (see above), but please stay tuned for more deals. We LUV our loyal RR Members, too!

Hello Lindsey, Thanks for the response but you missed my point. The post said "We are also giving a special Rapid Rewards treat to anyone who views the show." It says anyone not just new rapid rewards members. Thus the post is misleading at best and fraudulent at worse. I am disappointed. Kevin Lampe

i am concerned......I was one of the lucky audience members and i am yet to receive ANY response in regards to this. I cried with happiness when she anounced that we were getting a free flight......I thought i was going to be able to go and see my family for christmas........I stayed home alone over the holidays because i could not afford it. i have heard nothing and only hope (as well as the other gifts promise not arriving) that this is not also the case with southwest.

Hi Jess, We're working on it! As an audience member, you should have filled out a form to be entered as a Rapid Rewards member. We have those forms and are entering the information manually now. Once your account is created, we will drop enough credits in your account to earn a free Reward ticket. As the Ellen show mentioned, it will take 4-6 weeks from the tape date for us to get all the information, create your account, and get you your Rewards. We apologize for any confusion. Since the show taped on Dec. 9, there wasn't any way to get you the ticket for the holidays! In regards to the other giveaways, the Ellen show says you should have gone home with everything except two electronics, for which you received certificates that specifically listed the date these items would be available to order. Check those certificates. Thank you!
