I received an e-mail from Airtran informing me of the upcoming end of the AirTran A+ Rewards program as it gets folded into Southwest Rapid Rewards in November. As part of the integration, they’re asking folks to link their accounts:
In my case they offered me 750 Rapid Rewards points to link up my account now. I’m not a huge fan of the Rapid Rewards program but I think companion passes and the point-to-point network can make Southwest a great value for some. Check your e-mail and don’t miss these points if you have an old AirTran account.
ETA: Those were some of the easiest points I’ve ever earned. After clicking on the link, Southwest showed me my two accounts, which were listed under two different mailing addresses. It easily matched both and I was done with the process (no passwords needed) in less than a minute.
