One of the easiest ways to collect points with Southwest is through the Rapid Rewards Dining program. This program lets you earn points for every dollar spent in participating restaurants. Currently, Southwest is offering a 1,000 points bonus for signing up to the Rapid Dining Rewards program.
The offer is open to Southwest members who sign up by midnight ET on January 5, 2017. Once you have signed up it is relatively simple to pick the 1,000 points bonus. All you need to do is spend $25 or more at a participating restaurant, in the first 30 days. Make sure you pay with a registered credit card or debit card and finally submit an online review at the Rapid Rewards Dining program within 30 days of finishing your dining experience.
After completing these steps, the bonus points will be posted to your Southwest Rapid Rewards account automatically. Southwest states that it can take up to 6 weeks for the points to post to your account after you have submitted your review.
After looking at the terms and conditions, there are some special yet simple rules that govern the promotion.
- The promotion is open to all Rapid Rewards members who are not already signed up to the Rapid Rewards Dining program
- You can only earn the 1,000 points bonus once
- You must have opted in to receive emails from Rapid Rewards Dining. The email address used must be valid
- Some restaurants have restrictions on when you can earn Rapid Reward points, with earnings limited to certain days
Southwest is by no means unique in running its own dining program; almost every major airline in the US has its own. Currently, United is offering up to 2,500 MileagePlus miles when joining their program and dining in the first 30 days.
Signing up by the 31st of December 2016 to Delta’s dining program will give you the opportunity to earn up to 3,000 bonus SkyMiles, for visiting participating restaurants within the first 30 days of membership. As an added bonus, SkyMiles Medallion members can earn up to 3,500 miles.
Not to be outdone by its competitors, AA is also offering a bonus. By singing up before the 5th of January 2017, AAdvantage members can earn up to 1,000 miles for dining in the first 30 days of membership.
Everybody has to eat and if you're like most people you go out for food on a relatively regular basis. This is the perfect opportunity to combine earning miles with an expenditure that you have already planned and will undertake on a regular basis.
