The More You Spend, the More Southwest Points You’ll Earn

Returns, shipping costs, taxes, gift cards, and certain products do NOT count towards this bonus.

Southwest points are currently worth ~1.43 cents to ~1.7 cents per point (though this may be changing soon!).  And keep in mind, if you use a coupon you typically won’t get points through shopping portals.

So do the math to see if your coupon is worth more than the points!
