Earn points on tickets gifted to me

My daughter surprised me with a round trip ticket for an upcoming flight.  Do I earn rapid rewards points for travel paid for by another person?

Yes, with two IFs...

 

-The ticket must have been paid for with cash, not using RR points.

-You need to add your RR account # to the reservation

To expand, yes if not a points booking, -- the flyer always earns the points for flying, regardless of who purchased the ticket.
