Under Southwest’s ongoing ‘Point Mystery Offer’ purchasers of a minimum of 3,000 Southwest Rapid Rewards points are eligible for a discount of 40%, 45%, or 50%. This promotional offer remains in effect until February 23, 2024. 

Importantly, the offer mandates the use of a credit card for point purchases.

  • Minimum purchase threshold of 3,000 points
  • Maximum daily purchase limit of 60,000 points. 
  • There is no stated annual limit on point purchases.
  • Points purchased do not count towards elite status.

Typically, Rapid Rewards points are priced at 3.0 cents each when bought through Southwest.

In a scenario where you take advantage of a 50% discount to acquire 60,000 points, the expenditure would amount to $900. This translates to a rate of 1.5 cents for each Rapid Rewards point purchased under this deal.

In conclusion, the main attraction of purchasing Rapid Rewards points may be for those who want to top up their account balance just enough to purchase a Rapid Rewards award ticket. However, this approach can be beneficial for members who only need a small amount of points.
