Million Mile Secrets readers are the best!  To thank you, Emily and I are giving away 7,000 Southwest points!

Blog Giveaway 7000 Southwest Points May 2017
Southwest Has Added a Few New Destinations, Including Grand Cayman!

I’ll show you how to enter!

Southwest is a good choice for peak travel on miles & points because as long as there’s a seat for sale, you can book it with points.  Plus, everyone gets 2 free checked bags!

And Southwest points are easy to earn.  If you have a Chase Ultimate Rewards points earning credit card, like the Chase Ink Business Preferred, you can transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Southwest at a ratio of 1:1.

The Ink Business Preferred currently has a sign-up bonus of 80,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after spending $5,000 in purchases in the first 3 months of account opening.  So you can earn 80,000 Southwest points from 1 sign-up bonus!  And depending on your dates and destination, Southwest points can be worth 1.7 cents or more (especially if you have the Companion Pass!).

Just remember, if you’ve opened 5+ cards from ANY bank in the past 24 months, you will NOT be eligible to open any Chase Ultimate Rewards points earning cards (with the exception of certain business cards).

Enter this contest for a chance to win 7,000 more Southwest points!

Note:   Transferring Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Southwest will NOT count towards the Southwest Companion Pass.  And neither will the Southwest points you win from this giveaway.

How to Enter

Link:   Click on this post and tell me your favorite use of Southwest points!

To enter this giveaway, leave a comment telling me how you like to use Southwest points!  Do you have a favorite tropical getaway?  Do you use them for family visits?  Do you use them with the Companion Pass?

You MUST click this linked post & comment with your answer on that post (don’t comment on this post!).

You can also complete as many of the other tasks as you want.  You’ll get 1 entry for each item you complete.  But your entries only count if you complete the first step.  The more ways you enter, the more chances you have to win!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

You can enter until May 21, 2017, (Sunday) at 9:00 pm Central Time.

Good luck!

I love using Southwest points to fly to visit family in Boston or San Francisco (I live in Portland, OR).

Unfortunately I just now saw this SWA blog point giveaway, so I have missed the deadline for submitting my comment…..but I will comment anyway.

Flying on Southwest has been a god-send for myself and my sister over these last number of years as we scramble to meet the wide spectrum of needs of my 90 year old parents. We have juggled money and points with ease, enabling us to fly from NY to FL several times a year. We have utilized SWA’s numerous day/evening flight departures in emergencies. We have taken advantage of their ‘no-fee’ flight change policy, our ability to ‘bank’ money for a year on funds spent for flights that had to be changed, and we have re-deposited points back into our Rapid Rewards account without penalty. The ‘fee-free’ first two suitcases have helped us transport sentimental family items that we were unable to fit into our parents extremely down-sized accommodations when we had to move them into assisted living. My father very recently passed away and my sister used all of her remaining points towards the flight south – so yes, those 7,000 points would have been a great gift to her.

Southwest, like any business, needs to pay it’s expenses and also make a profit to ensure survival, but HOW they make it explains WHY they make it, and continue to – and it is due, in no small part, to their thoughtful consideration in policy-making. I believe it has most certainly helped them establish a loyal customer base. So, be it for pleasure or necessity, my sister and I will join countless others and continue to fly Southwest.

Visit family in California

Short haul domestic flights!

The SW points are the best value in flying today – their flexibility in booking (and cancelling) flights make them a must have!
