Southwest portal deals: Staples 6X, Neiman Marcus 12X, more…

The Southwest Rapid Rewards Shopping Portal is offering improved bonuses on a number of stores today.  Staples 6X will be particularly interesting to some since you can pay with a Chase Ink card to get an additional 5 points per dollar, for a total of 11 points per dollar at Staples

Here are some of the bonus offers I found today via the Southwest portal:

  • Back Country 15X
  • Global Wine Cellars 18X
  • JC Penney 9X
  • Neiman Marcus 12X
  • SnapFish 21X
  • Staples 6X

Notes:

  • You do not need to pay with a Southwest credit card to get bonus points from the portal
  • Points earned do count towards the Southwest Companion Pass
  • Don’t forget that both Discover and Freedom cards are offering 5X this quarter for online merchants (Discover) and department stores (Freedom).
  • Staples no longer pays out portal points for gift card purchases.
  • I launched an experiment last month to see if Back Country would pay out portal rewards for gift card purchases.  So far, no points are pending so it’s looking very unlikely.
