2,000 Free Southwest Rapid Rewards Points For Referrals, 250 Free For New Sign-Ups

Southwest Airlines is offering 500 Rapid Rewards points for each new member you refer, up to a maximum of 2,000 points.

Rapid Rewards

And, if you’re a new member of the program who’s referred, you’ll get 250 points to get started.  Not a ton of points either way, but I’m always an advocate of grabbing the low hanging fruit.  If you use Southwest for reward travel, this is essentially free money since they’re a revenue-based earn and burn program.

You can find all the info here.

This looks targeted, but all 4 accounts in our household appear eligible, so may be a pretty wide target audience.

I’d never turn down 2,000 free points, so if you’re not a member of Rapid Rewards, leave a comment here and I’ll reach out to refer you.  If you want to try to earn referrals yourself, feel free to leave a comment here as well for people looking to sign up.


  1. I’ll take one of those referrals! I wonder if after I sign up, I’ll get an email to refer my friends (husband). If not, I’ll be back for another referral! I knew there was a reason I was waiting to sign up for Rapid Rewards!

      1. Ha ha! Actually, I’ve been using CheckPoints, which has SWRR as a reward. I have enough for 1000 points, so I’m anxious to redeem them!

  2. Hi Ed,

    I clicked through, entered 4 names, etc. and sent it off. Afterward I realized there was no connection to my account in the form….so hope you get the credit if my family decides to enroll.

    1. Pam, thanks for thinking of me. I actually need to send it off on my end, then hopefully you would be able to do that for others and earn your own referral bonus. If you shoot me an email at Ed -at- Milepoint dot com I can take care of that for you.
