Link:   TurboTax Southwest Promotion

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

News You Can Use 1,000 Southwest Points With TurboTax New Hyatt Suite Upgrade Rules More WOW Air Flights Free Hertz Points

If You Have Simple Taxes, File With TurboTax and Get 1,000 Southwest Points!

And, the free online version of TurboTax qualifies for this deal, so the extra Southwest points cost you nothing!

To get the offer, files your taxes by April 18, 2016 (or April 19, 2016, for folks in Maine and Massachusetts), and be sure to click through this page.

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!

2.   Hyatt Suite Upgrades Have New Expiration Rules
