WHEN DO POINTS BEGIN ACCRUING?

New Arrival

My first flight as an SWA member is coming up in 2 days, but my reward points still show zero.  Will that change after I check in, or after completion of my trip?

Good morning,. Welcome to Rapid Rewards.

 

Points are earned when your fight is completed and are posted to your account shortly thereafter (normally less than a day).

 

If you are flying roundtrip, it may be after you have completed the return potion of your trip (ie completed the reservation).

Points post after the completion of all travel on the itinerary.
