Southwest is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a promotion to earn 50 points per dollar spent on Southwest purchases with Southwest credit cards this Friday!

Cardmembers will earn a whopping 50 Southwest points per dollar on up to $100 of Southwest flights, gift cards, in-flight purchases, points, and vacation packages.

That means if you buy a $100 eGift card you’ll earn 5,000 Southwest points! At a value of 1.55 cents per point, those points are worth some $77.50, making the effective cost of the gift card just $22.50!

You can make purchases on 6/11 between 12am-11:59pm ET.

As with all credit card points, the points earned from this promotion will count towards earning Companion Pass status.

The bonus points will take up to 8 weeks to post to your account.

You can read all about the Southwest cards and benefits in this post.

Will you take advantage of this offer?

Is it per SW card or per SW account?


For promotions, PGFHGS.
For mistake fares, don’t call.

Looks like it is 50x on the first $100 only… first $100 spent on each card is my understanding.


Nice deal. And 5,000 points could also be the difference getting a companion pass or not at the end of the year, so if you’re borderline each year it’s worth a shot on this one.

I have sw priority with $75 back on sw purchases. Does this mean I have to spend $175 for the max 50x?


Please post a reminder on Friday if possible.


Thanks for letting us know. If I buy a $100 gift card, can I use the gift card to pay for the taxes on an award flight? And if so, what happens to the gift card funds if I cancel the award flight? Will the $5.60 from the gift card now have an expiration date? If I pay for the taxes with a credit card and cancel, I can have the $5.60 refunded to my credit card, but I don’t know what happens to the taxes if I pay them with a gift card. Thank you.


as verified with WN, refund from a gc purch will be a TF that will expire 1 yr after booking


Can I buy points and still get 50 points per dollar spent?


So buying GC from southwest website works? It won’t get coded as a non southwest transaction?


do we know if this is per card or per account?


Do we need to register for the promotion before buying the gift card?


I did it at 7:00 am EST it wasn’t live until 9:00??


Thanks for the follow-up and confirmation! That’s great news!!!!


Thanks as always Dan!!! It worked last night @12:04 am was able to swipe 3 cc on 2 different accounts


nah, all SWA CCs were closed last yr


Can a GC be added(redeemed) to an account right after purchase to be used later? Heard so many stories of people ending up with $0 on their GCs when they go to redeem because the funds had been stolen/used.

Hopefully once this is over the change fare difference waiver will come back. It’s overdue by about a week already.


So, it is already October – has anyone received the bonus SWA points yet? If yes, where do you see this, on the Chase SWA Visa statement or directly in your SWA.com account?


Not yet – hmmm
