Registration & Terms
This promotion is targeted to Southwest credit card holders and may not work for everyone. The terms say, “Only the Rapid Rewards® Member who received this e-mail/offer from Southwest Airlines® is eligible for this promotion. Offer is nontransferrable. Member must register for this promotion between December 1, 2014 and January 15, 2015.”
With that said, you can find the full details and register for the promotion here. If you have not been targeted for the promotion it really is YMMV whether or not they will honor the bonus or not.
Even if you only go for the first 1,000 bonus points this seems to be a good deal. 1,000 bonus points are worth about $14, meaning you would be getting over a 50% rebate on your first dine. If you do a lot of dining/shopping, being able to earn the additional 500 points in each category may be a good thing.
Personally I will probably just do the $25 dine and review and forget about the other offers unless a great portal bonus comes out. Who knows with the way things have been going lately.
This is a great deal for Rapid Rewards members who were targeted. There are a lot of eligible restaurants in my area that I frequent, so completing the first task is a no-brainer for me. If you weren’t targeted but have the co-branded card, you may want to register, but know that they may not honor the deal. Good luck!
