Been an avid fan and follower of your site for a number of years now and have planned many awesome expensive adventures with just points.

I have a return flight planned in a few days from Vietnam to NY, which will get me to United Premium for the year 80k pqm and 14k pqd. I thought that was good enough, however, with United’s new PointsPlus program, I’m thinking that 1k will have a lot of additional upside with the 320 PointsPlus which translate to 4-8 international business upgrades. Now in order to qualify for 1k in the next month and a half, I have to get 20k pqm and 1k pqd. Unfortunately, I am pretty booked until the end of the year, so I can only do 1 points run.

An easy way for me to get the required points is to purchase an Award Accelerator for my flight back to NY for $2,400 ($400 for 20k award points, and $2000 for 20k pqm) and then purchase a flight for $1000 to get the 1k pqd.

So my question is spending $3,400 to go up to 1k worth it? I plan on taking 12-15 united flights next year, at least 6 of which are international that I can upgrade to Business class on with pointsPlus.

Thank you and appreciate it,

I own 2 different businesses. Can I open 2 different SwA business cards ? If yes should I open the same day ? Please advice and send to my email. ( Thank you !

I’ve had many friends use your links to sign up for credit cards. I know you get compensated and we try to support you. Whenever we attempt to sign up via your link we get zero response from the issuing bank. Normally if rejected we should get notification but Nada.

When my friends apply directly with the issuing bank we get either immediate acceptance or a rejection letter within 2 weeks.

We cannot use your links any more.

I us to enjoy your website but you have become a advertisement for those who will pay you. SO SAD

Can southwest points be transferred from one person to another? if so how? I would like to transfer my points to my son. thank you

Hi Diane!

According to Southwest’s website, yes, you can transfer points to another account. You’ll have to login to your account, click “Rapid Rewards” at the top of your screen, then go to “Manage” and then “Buy or Transfer points”. Enter the information for the person receiving your points and make sure they’re a Rapid Rewards member.
