Points earned for rental car reserved off Southwest site?

I reserved a car through Avis using the Chase Rapid Rewards card, but I reserved it directly with Avis. Do I still earn points, or must the car be reserved through the Southwest site?

You'll get points because you used your RR CC, but no other bonus points that you would get if you booked on Southwest.com.

You'll earn points associated with the spend on your credit card. Some car companies also allow you to put your frequent flyer account information in your profile and give points in lieu of earnings in their company's rewards program. Any additional points mentioned on southwest.com for renting cars are only earned by reserving through the Southwest site.

If you're an AVIS member and designate airline points rather than Avis points I believe it is 600 Rapid Rewards points on SW per rental regardless of the spend with Avis, usually takes about a week or less to drop into the RR account.
