About Southwest Airlines
It is fast and easy to earn free travel through Rapid Rewards. Rapid Rewards Members earn credits by flying or using the program’s Preferred Partners. It takes just eight roundtrips, or 16 credits, to qualify for an Award. However, Members can accelerate their earnings by using the Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Credit Card from Chase, doing business with any of the airline’s other Preferred Partners, or by purchasing Southwest’s Business Select fares when flying. Plus, once it’s earned, Southwest Airlines allows the Member to transfer the Award to anyone. The Award is free but subject to the U.S. government-imposed September 11th Security Fee of up to $10 roundtrip.
