From now through July 31, 2014, Southwest Rapids Rewards is offering a 40% bonus on purchased or gifted points.
How To Get 40% Bonus Points
The points price through this promotion comes out to ~$1.96 cents per point. Given that points can be redeemed for ~$1.42 cents, the only reason this promotion makes sense is to top off an account for an award, or pay for miles when a specific flight option costs a lot more with a revenue ticket.
- Valid through July 31, 2014
- Get 40% bonus points
Now is a great time to buy Rapid Rewards® Points or give them as a gift to family or friends with this 40% bonus points offer available through July 31, 2014!
That gives you only one week to take advantage of this great opportunity. Whether you’re traveling within the country or jetting off to one of our new international destinations, buying Rapid Rewards Points can help you or your recipient get there sooner. Plus, when you use your Rapid Rewards Premier or Plus Credit Card to purchase these points, you’ll earn an additional 2 points for every $1 spent.
Hurry! This limited-time offer ends next Thursday, July 31, 2014.

For gifted points, recipients will receive a 40 percent bonus of Rapid Rewards Points. Transfer transactions are not eligible for this offer. Transactions are nonrefundable and nonreversible. Purchased/gifted points and bonus points do not count toward A-List, A-List Preferred, or Companion Pass qualification.

The 40% bonus is a large bonus, but the cost is higher than the redemption value. I suspect this promotion will be used by very few, but still may come in handy for those looking to top off accounts for a specific award.
