Creative Ways to Earn Southwest Reward Points

Looks like I will be short to earn companion pass this year since there has been no multipliers on credit card purchases. Looking for creative ways to earn companion pass points. I am aware of shopping, dinning , car rentals and hotels. Thanks!

You can still use your current companion pass on BS flights, the only trick is that the companion won't get sequential boarding position.

 

The 12x points is the best way to make a big leap in point earning.

 

Also look at RocketMiles if you have any hotel stays coming up later this year.

I'd book one or more hotel stays via Southwest and look for the hotel offers with bonus points. I've gotten thousands of extra points that way, they regularly offer 1,000 - 10,000 or more bonus points.

Have you registered for the promotion that is out there:  earn a 25% bonus when you register and make purchase on your rapid rewards credit card.  (7/1/23-9/30/23)

 

This is the second one they have done this year.

I have registered but perhaps u can help me with this. Few days ago I was given 90 action reward points bonus. This does not make sense for the 25% offer when I spent approximately $8000 in that time period. Perhaps I am wrong to think this action reward bonus just given is from the credit card but I can not get an answer from Southwest. Thanks
