Southwest has announced their fall Double Points Promotion today. From now through November 15, 2012 you can earn double points on all Southwest flights weather you are flying from east to west, west to east, north to south or from the south “UP” north.

How To Get Double Points

  • Step 2:  Book a Southwest flight for yourself between September 13, 2012 and November 15, 2012.
  • Step 3:  Complete your travel between September 13, 2012 and November 15, 2012.

Double Points Promotion Details

Let’s use an example to illustrate the value of this promotion. If you have top status with Southwest, you’ll earn 12x points for a business select fare. This is 12x double points promo, 12x for A-List preferred (100% of base), so 36x SW points per dollar spent on a Business Select Fare.
For a $100 business select fare, the rebate will be $60 dollars worth in Southwest points.
  • So for spending $100, you”ll get $60 back
  • 1 SW point = 1.6 cents in Wanna Get Away Fares
  • $100 Fare X 36 points per dollar / 60 = $60
