Southwest Airlines Reward Points

Hi,

It seems like Buffalo will remain a cheaper option when flying to Orlando. Is there anyway that Canadians are able to collect points with southwest?

Can we obtain the credit card?

I can confirm that Canadians can sign up for SW rapid rewards and redeem for flights.
As a matter of fact, I have 2 upcoming flights booked using my rapid rewards points. (One to MCO of course)
Not certain about the credit card however. Never looked into it. Sorry.

Sorry should have been clearer. Are there any ways to accumulate points other than flying with SW?

When I look at my email confirmation it has an option to add or Join for the rapid rewards points so yes, I believe you can sign up after purchasing but before the flight.

Just call them. We have booked before and then added our Rewards later. We have had several free flights through their program.

I just added RR numbers to a friends May flights today. It's not easy to find. I ended up searching for 'add reward points' and that took me to the right place.

Hi folks, so I'm trying to add my points to our ressie, we are a family of 6, naturally I am trying to add my reward # to all passengers, but it will only let me add to my name, saying the rest are duplicate? Can I only collect for my flight, not my hubby and kids'?

No as the card is in your name. each person has to have their own card. I know as I just booked flights for DH and me for August and DH doesn't have a card either but thinking of getting him one too so he can start collecting.
