    Hi, in regards to your promotion for two free airline tickets with your credit card, how soon can they be used and please explain the “wanna get away” Can you use these points at certain times?

    Hi Jean,

    Please note that the two free airline ticket promo is currently expired. The current offer is for 25,000 points, which is enough for one round trip ticket.

    You’ll qualify to earn your bonus points after you make your first purchase. The terms state that you should allow 6-8 weeks afterwards for your points to post to your Rapid Rewards account. Once the points post, you’ll be able to redeem for free flight(s).

    Southwest has a few different types of fares which you can read about here. Basically, “Wanna Get Away” fares are non-refundable tickets. If you need to change your flight, however, they still do offer you the opportunity to apply the amount as a credit towards future travel.

    If my wife gets a second card does that get another 25000 credit or if she gets a separate card, does she qualify for the 25000 point free flight?

    Walter, although the terms suggest otherwise, many people have been successful in getting a second card so long as it isn’t a duplicate of what you currently have. (Note that there are 2 versions of the personal card: Premier and Plus.) If your wife already has a Premier card, she should be able to get a Plus card (with the bonus) and vice versa.
