Sears is once again offering 9 points per dollar through the Southwest Rapid Rewards Shopping Portal.
Interestingly, the terms and conditions now explicitly allow earning points for the purchase of gift cards! (hat tip to Big Habitat for discovering that Cartera run portals now allow this). This means that you can go through the portal to buy Sears e-gift cards to get 9X points and then go through the portal again to buy merchandise with those gift cards for another 9X! Plus, you’ll earn points from your credit card for the initial gift card purchase.
Points earned through the shopping portal do count towards the Southwest Companion Pass (which requires earning 110,000 points per calendar year). So, if you are close to earning enough points for the companion pass, deals like this can be a great way to bridge the gap. Keep in mind, though, that the points can take a couple of months to fully post and won’t count towards the Companion Pass until then.
