The Rapid Reward Program is designed to be an individual flier rewards program and each person must have their own account. However, one passenger's points can be used to purchase flights for another other passenger, as long as this purchaser's account has enough to cover the entire one way flight.

Membership

Membership in the Rapid Rewards program will be granted by Southwest Airlines and is for individual travelers only. Individuals must enroll separately and may not pool or combine points with other Members. Except as specifically approved by Southwest, corporations and other entities may not be enrolled as Members.

Member is limited to one account. A Member must provide his or her legal name matching his or her government issued photo identification, address, phone number, valid email address, gender, and date of birth. Account specific information will be sent via email to the primary email address in the Member's Rapid Rewards account.

Member is responsible for notifying Southwest Airlines immediately of any change of name, email address, or physical address. Name change requests must be submitted in writing to Rapid Rewards, P.O. Box 36657, Dallas, Texas 75235. The written request must contain the Member's current contact information (name, address, telephone number, and email address if available), Rapid Rewards account number, along with photocopies of legal documentation (ex. old government issued photo ID and new government issued photo ID, marriage license, divorce decree, etc.) and an informal letter indicating legal name. Email address and physical address changes may be made on Southwest.com® after logging into in your account.

Upon enrollment, Members' accounts are active for 24 months. Members' accounts will remain active as long as the Member has a Qualifying Activity at least once every 24 months. The Member's account expiration date will be 24 months from the date of the last Qualifying Activity. If a Member fails to have any Qualifying Activity in 24 months, the Member's account will become inactive and all points, awards, rewards, and promotional incentives will be forfeited. Southwest Airlines reserves the right to cancel the membership of any inactive Member. “Qualifying Activity” means (a) points earned from flights booked through Southwest Airlines, (b) points earned from our Rapid Rewards Partners and posted to Member’s account prior to the expiration date, (c) points purchased through Southwest.com, and (d) gifted/transferred/donated points received and claimed by the recipient. Gifted/Transferred/Donated points are a Qualifying Activity for the recipient only. Examples of activities that do not count as Qualifying Activities include but are not limited to: cancelled trips; nonrevenue travel such as Reward or Companion Pass travel; for the donating Member, points donated by a Member to a charity; and other travel such as charter flights, service-charged, reduce-rate, tradeout, extra seat, and paper tickets.

All transactions and Accounts in the Rapid Rewards program are subject to review and adjustment by Southwest at any time and without notice to the Member to ensure compliance with applicable rules. Any suspected fraud, misrepresentation, misuse, abuse or violation of applicable rules, including, but not limited to, contracts of carriage, tariffs, the program rules, our Rapid Rewards Partners’ rules and regulations, and qualification requirements and benefits applicable to A-List and A-List Preferred Memberships and Companion Pass, may result in (a) cancellation of the Member's Account and any associated reservations, (b) forfeiture of (1) accrued points in the Member’s Account, (2) A-List or A-List Preferred status (if applicable), (3) Companion Pass qualification (if applicable), (4) awards, and (5) rewards or promotional incentives, and/or (c) a delay or suspension of the processing of points and reporting and the redemption of points, awards, status benefits, rewards and promotional

Hi 

 

why do you want to combine them?  If you are looking for a round trip ticket and you don't have enough points in your account just book a one way with your points and book another one way with your wife's points in yor name.

Hi @janmecom,

Rapid Rewards Accounts cannot be shared or combined. Each individual receives credit for the flights that he/she flies.

Unfortunately, Southwest doesn't offer any way to share or combine Rapid Rewards accounts, such as how JetBlue does with it's Family Pooling.
