Flight points

New Arrival

How long does it usually take for points from a flight to post. Its been 4 days since my flight and my points haven't posted, I've never had it take this long. Not sure if its because there were weather issues and flights got changed

Typically RR points are credited to your account within 24 hours of trip completion, but Southwest says allow 72 hours. Is your entire trip complete or do you have additional flights on the same reservation still to come? If you have more flights on the reservation you'll need to wait until they are completed. 


If trip is complete you can request points be credited to your RR account:

You can request past flight points for up to 12 months after your flight.  To claim points for a past flight, simply log into your account, select My Account and choose the Manage tab within My Rapid Rewards.  Choose Request past points in the grey bar and enter your record locator (confirmation number) from your reservation. After verification of your flight information (up to 5 days), points will be deposited into your account.
