Southwest has partnered with Best Western to offer a promotion where you can earn one Rapid Rewards bonus credit for every $100 you purchase/load onto a Best Western Travel Card (max 5 Rapid Rewards Points). A Best Western Travel Card is a gift card you can use at Best Western hotels, of which there are 4,000 worldwide. This bonus credit is in addition to the half Rapid Rewards credit you earn per qualified stay.
You will have to join the Best Western Rewards program, Best Western’s loyalty program, and pick Southwest Airlines as your earning preference.
You can buy the Best Western Cards here (be sure to have your Rapid Rewards membership number handy).
Fly away this summer with up to five bonus Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® credits when you purchase the Best Western Travel Card. To take advantage of this offer, just join Best Western Rewards®, Best Western’s free frequent guest program, and select Southwest Airlines as your earning preference. As a member that has selected to earn Rapid Rewards credits, you can earn a bonus credit for every $100 Travel Card purchased through August 31, 2010 – up to a maximum of five bonus credits.
The Travel Card works just like cash and can be redeemed for hotel charges at 4,000* Best Western hotels worldwide, so you can use the Travel Card for future stays and continue to earn the standard half (0.5) credit per qualified stay.
If you stay at Best Western hotels, this is a great way to double dip. If you have a Southwest credit card, this will get you even closer to free flights.
