Can you purchase points using SW Air gift cards?

Hello.

 

Gift cards my only be used to buy flights.

 

Even if you could use them to buy points, why would you want to do that? Points are worth about 1.7cents each (includes the elimination of taxes you would pay if you were paying cash). But it costs more than 1.7 cents/point to buy points.

Without knowing more details about what you are trying to accomplish, that sounds like a HORRIBLE idea which will result in you paying much more for a flight. Don't buy points!

You got a motion, a second, and now a third.  You don't get the same return on your value to buy points with a gift card if it can be done.
