A few days ago both United Airlines and American Airlines offered bonus miles for back to school shopping through its shopping portal. Today I received an email from SouthWest Airlines that the “SouthWest Rapid Rewards” shopping portal is offering bonus miles for shopping through the rapid rewards shopping portal.
Earn up to 2k Bonus Rapid Rewards Mile for Back to School Shopping
The back to School bonus offer of up to 2k Rapid Rewards miles are earned on top of any miles you will earn for shopping through the shopping portal. The maximum of 2k bonus offer is available if you spend $550 or more through the online shopping portal.
The bonus offer is available to all the purchases made between July 24, 2017, through August 18, 2017, mid night Eastern Daylight Time.
The 2k Southwest Rapid Rewards bonus mile offer is less than the maximum bonus of 3k offered by United Airlines, which requires a higher spend to unlock the 3k bonus.
Bonus Point Earning for Your Shopping Portal Spend
|Portal Spend||Bonus Miles|
|$0 – $124||0|
|$550 and above||2000|
Please note the taxes and shipping charges are not included as part of the shopping portal spend. If you spend $570 at the Rapid Rewards shopping portal and out of the spend, $21 is taxes and shipping, your portal spend is $549 and you will receive 900 Rapid Rewards bonus miles only and not 2000 miles which require a spend of $550 or more before taxes and shipping charges.
In addition to shopping portal and bonus miles, if you use Chase Southwest Airlines co-branded card you will earn one additional Rapid Rewards mile per dollar spent.
You can also earn one extra mile or point if you use any miles are points earning credit card.
