Yay, I woke up to some great news! Thanks to Brian, The Points Guy, for letting us know that Southwest Airlines will soon be a partner in the Chase Ultimate Rewards program. Chase Ultimate Rewards points will transfer 1:1 to Southwest beginning January 5, 2012. I have yet to fly Southwest, but nevertheless this is exciting news because Southwest has excellent award redemption options for domestic flights, and they also fly directly out of Newark, NJ- my home airport.
Now as we celebrate the integration of Southwest into the Chase Ultimate Rewards program, why not pregame with some free points?
Here’s how to earn an easy 500 Southwest Rapid Rewards points:
