About Rapid Rewards

Since 1971, Southwest Airlines has been providing budget fares without compromising on customer service. As a low-cost carrier, flyers have come to expect no frills here, but are constantly amazed by the level at which the airline operates. As the world's largest budget airline, you might say that Southwest has pioneered the entire lowcost airline model and with about 4,000 departures per day they're running quite the finely tuned machine. Flying to 121 destinations with a massive fleet of 736 airplanes, you'll usually have several departure options and can reach some really exciting locations such as Fresno, CA, Houston, TX, Jackson, MS, Miami, FL, Montrose, CO, Myrtle Beach, SC and many others. You can also join Southwest Airlines' rewards program, Rapid Rewards, which enables you to earn points on every flight you take. Points can be used to upgrade your seats or even book whole trips, making this an extremely valuable rewards program. Please note that this loyalty program typically works for all your purchases at Southwest Airlines, but some exceptions may apply.

Loyalty points or benefits will usually appear in your Rapid Rewards account within 1 days.

You may be able to recover points or redeem rewards you should have earned for a purchase.
