2.   Up to 15X Southwest Points

Via Frequent Miler, you can get up to 15X Southwest points shopping when you shop at Staples through the Southwest Rapid Rewards shopping portal by December 22, 2014 (today).

Note:   Although the 15X Southwest points offer expires today, you can get 9X Southwest points through December 23, 2014.

How to Get up to 15X Southwest Points

Step 1 – Go Through the Southwest Rapid Rewards Shopping Portal

Normally you get 2X Southwest points shopping at Staples via the Southwest Rapid Rewards shopping portal.  Today you can get 6X points.  (Gift cards are not eligible.)

Step 2 – Use a Card That Gets 5X

Pay with your Ink Bold, Ink Cash, or Ink Plus and get 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points.  That’s because you get 5X points at office supply stores including Staples.

The AMEX SimplyCash also gets you 5% back at US office supply stores.

If you use your Discover card, you’ll get 5% cash back.  Because all online purchases get 5% back this quarter.

Step 3 – Spend $175, Get 750 Southwest Points

You get 750 bonus Southwest points when you spend $175 (cumulative total so you can have multiple orders) by 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time on December 23, 2014.

This gives you ~4X Southwest points (750 Southwest points / $175 spending).

Add all 3 steps together = ~15X Southwest points (6X + 5X + ~4X)

Note:  You will NOT get the 750 Southwest bonus points buying gift cards.

  1. Do you get the portal bonuses for buying Visa cards via Staples?

  2. Does booking IHG via TopCashBack count as a qualifying room rate for the Into the Nights promo?

  3. Do you know if the cash back portals will accept IHG hotel stays on the State Employee rate?

  4. @ Mark – I was wondering the same thing for Companion Pass matching in early 2015, but if you click through the Staples portal offer, the terms & conditions mention it does NOT count for Gift cards. Doesn’t look promising.
