Folks on Reddit report you can get 1,000 Southwest points when you file your taxes with TurboTax this year.

Lots of folks commented they had to follow-up with Southwest to receive their bonus points.  And keep in mind federal taxes are free to file, but you may have to pay to file state taxes, depending on where you live.

This promotion isn’t right for everybody.  I do NOT recommend filing your taxes with TurboTax just to earn free points.  But if y’all were planning to file online anyway, this is an easy way to build your Southwest points balance!
