Can I donate to charity and earn RR Points?

Southwest Airlines is proud to be supporting communities impacted by Coronavirus by launching a promotional partnership with the American Red Cross, Feeding America, and Team Rubicon. Customers who donate a minimum of $25 or more to one of our three partner charities will receive 10 Rapid Rewards bonus points for every dollar donated!
