Expiring credits that I can't use

Explorer C

 I have a $70 flight credit expiring next week that I won't be able to use. Can I just book a $69 southwest flight and check in but not actually make the flight, so I at least can get some rapid reward points from the flight instead of the money going to complete waste?

Yes you can but it would be a fruitless exercise as you would only accrue miles if you actually board the flight and not just check in for it.

Nope, that won't work. Unless you can travel before expiration there's no benefit or value to you.

Nodda, this is why I continue to encourage folks to periodically go in and check their SWA account and other information even if they aren't scheduled to fly soon.  I'm guessing I see this exact same post about credits expiring and can't use them 20 times a year in this forum.
