Don’t Leave Southwest Points on the Table When You Rent a Car!

Lyn blogs about Southwest Airlines at  And  she offers her free “Step-by-Step Guide to Earning the Southwest Companion Pass” to help you quickly and easily earn the amazing Southwest Companion Pass, which lets 1 person fly nearly free with you for up to 2 years.  

So I’ve asked her to share some tips on how to earn Southwest points when you rent a car.

Lyn:   Renting a car is a common activity for travelers who want an independent mode of transportation at their destination.  

Whether you’ll be sight-seeing around a US National Park, driving along the Pacific Coast highway, or just want the freedom to stop at the grocery and explore a destination on your own time, car rentals can come in quite handy.

Cheap Car Rentals: Priceline’s “Name Your Own Price”

[Disclosure:  Emily and I get a referral if you sign-up for Top Cash Back using our link.  You will get 3% cash back if you go to Priceline’s “Name Your Own Price” through Top Cash Back.]

Don’t forget to follow me on Facebook or Twitter!

I’ve used Priceline’s “Name Your Own Price” to bid for cheap car rentals.

However, it takes a bit of work to determine the best price to bid for Priceline, but more importantly, you can’t cancel or modify a Priceline “Name Your Own Price” reservation.   So this is useful only if you know that your plans won’t change.
