Summer Travel Hacks to Make the Most of Your Trips

  • last month
With temperatures rising and summer making a welcome return, now is the perfect time to start planning your next trip. For travelers who love adventure, consider booking an “experience” off your bucket list, we have the perfect travel hacks to get you there.

Now through June 26, new Southwest Rapid Rewards® Credit Cardmembers can earn 85,000 Rapid Rewards® bonus points after spending $3,000 on purchases in the first three months from account opening.  Cardmembers can take advantage of perks like two EarlyBird Check-In®s per year on the Plus and Premier Cards while the Priority Card enjoys 4 Upgraded Boardings per year, when available. And if you’re traveling with your own sports equipment, Southwest® also allows you to swap a checked bag for things like skis, snowboards and scuba gear.

And the benefits continue to the points earned on your card. Priority Cardmembers earn 3X points on all Southwest purchases while Plus Cardmembers earn 2X points. Once you arrive at your destination, all three cards can earn 2X points per dollar spent on Rapid Rewards® hotel and car rental partners – so you can go from one adventure to the next while earning points towards your future trips.

On top of all of these great benefits, Southwest Airlines® flies to a variety of bucket-list worthy destinations across the country, so you can explore the Rocky Mountains in Denver, surf the waves in Honolulu, catch a game at Wrigley Field in Chicago, and so much more. And Rapid Rewards points don’t expire, so you can put those hard-earned points towards your next adventure.
