Transferring Reward Points to Southwest

Postby Stros05 » Thu Jul 20, 2017 10:50 am

I am trying to accumulate as many Southwest Airlines points as possible. I just realized I could transfer points from Choice Privileges and La Quinta to my Southwest RR account. The process was quite simple.

Other than flying and getting the Southwest credit card, do you have any suggestions on how to get more Southwest RR points?

I'm not familiar with the details of the Choice-to-SW or LQ-to-SW transfer programs. Generally, hotel-to-airline transfers give a poor value.

Of course, if you won't actually be redeeming the Choice or LQ points for hotel stays, SW transfers may be your best option.

As to your actual question, SW has an online shopping portal that may be useful: https://rapidrewardsshopping.southwest.com/
Warranties and sketchy merchants: Schwab Platinum
Price rewind: Costco
Travel insurance: Prestige, CSP
Perks: IHG, Hyatt
Rewards/Offers: Discover, Freedom, ED, BCE
Taxes/Misc: SPG

Limited value, might close: Arrival

Might add: First Tech, proper business card
