Earlier this month, Southwest Rapid Rewards Credit Cards from Chase launched the Destination: Love Sweepstakes*, designed to inspire travel solely based on the hobbies and interests people love most. Open exclusively to Southwest Rapid Rewards Members ages 19 and up, entrants have the chance to win one of three trips to a surprise destination they’ll love. The trip includes hotel accommodations, round trip air travel on Southwest Airlines ® , and pre-arranged activities tied to the trip’s theme for the winner and a guest.
Southwest Rapid Rewards Credit Cardmembers also automatically receive one additional entry to the Sweepstakes. See below for a bonus entry without becoming a Cardmember†. The three surprise ‘destinations’ include:
Destination: Barbecue: Love flavorful meats and sweet or tangy sauce? Cardmembers earn 1X points per $1 spent on everyday purchases, like dining and groceries, meaning each purchase gets Cardmembers one step closer to their next plate piled high with brisket and burgers. The winner will not only enjoy some of the best barbecue in the Country, but they’ll also have the chance to learn the ins and outs of the craft from the pitmasters themselves.
Destination: Pickleball: With Southwest Airlines named The Official Airline and the Southwest Rapid Rewards Priority Card as The Official Credit Card of the Professional Pickleball Association (PPA Tour), the winner will have the chance to immerse themselves in the world of pickleball—America’s fastest growing sport–including time on the court, interactions with coaches and more. Even outside the Sweepstakes, winners can get to the courts with a partner even faster as all points Cardmembers earn with their Rapid Rewards® Credit Card count toward the coveted Companion Pass® (the benefit that lets a Rapid Rewards® Member designate one person to fly with them, free of airline charges—not including taxes and fees from $5.60 one-way—every time the Customer purchases or redeems points for a flight). As an exclusive benefit, Cardmembers receive a boost of 10,000 Companion Pass qualifying points each year.
Destination: Stream Come True: Consumer Cardmembers earn 2X points per $1 spent on select streaming services, so taking inspiration from some of the biggest western series available on TV, the Southwest Rapid Rewards Credit Cards from Chase will help one lucky fan live out their streamable Wild, Wild, West fantasies.
Winners will also receive 25,000 Rapid Rewards bonus points (subject to Rapid Rewards Restrictions set forth in the Official Rules) to use towards future travel with Southwest Airlines. Points bookings don’t include taxes, fees, and other government/airport charges of at least $5.60 per one-way flight.
“With the Destination: Love Sweepstakes, we’re encouraging travelers to expand their horizons and learn more about the things they love by seeing them up close,” said Matthew Schlitz, General Manager of Southwest Rapid Rewards Credit Cards from Chase. “It exemplifies Southwest Rapid Rewards Credit Cards from Chase’s commitment to rewarding our Cardmembers every day and inspiring them to turn the rewards earned on their cards into new, unforgettable experiences.”
