Rapid Rewards accounts will remain active and points won’t expire as long as you earn Rapid Rewards Points from flights or Partners every 24 months.
A reward flight is just one of the many rewards waiting for you when you're a Rapid Rewards® Member. We've made it easier than ever to earn points when you fly, participate with our Partners, and with the Rapid Rewards Points Center, get the points you need to enjoy those rewards even faster.
In addition to earning points from flights and Partners, Rapid Rewards Members can purchase points for themselves, to give as a gift, or transfer them to another Rapid Rewards account. Rapid Rewards Partnership Points offers companies of all sizes the opportunity to buy points to engage Customers or reward Employees.
Points conditions: Points don’t expire as long as you have flight-earning or partner-earning activity at least once every 24 months.
Points conditions: Transactions are nonrefundable and nonreversible. Points will post within 72 hours. Purchased, gifted, transferred, and donated points do not count toward Tier or Companion Pass status. A credit card must be used to complete point purchase, gift, and transfer transactions. Points can be bought for personal use or as a gift in blocks of 1,000 during promotional periods and 500 when off promotion with an initial minimum purchase of 2,000 points and a daily combined maximum of 60,000 points. Points can be transferred or donated in blocks of 1,000 during promotional periods and 500 when off promotion with a minimum initial transfer of 2,000 points and a daily maximum of 60,000 points. Unless Southwest Airlines and a charity jointly announce otherwise, no portion of the purchase price that a Passenger pays for a ticket is paid to any charity or may automatically generate Rapid Rewards Points for any charity, even those Southwest Airlines preselects as eligible recipients of the Rapid Rewards donation program. Southwest Airlines reserves the right to change the charities that are eligible to participate in the Rapid Rewards donation program at any time without notice.
