are the bonus points ones that count towards Comp. Pass? I had 110,256, then 3 weeks later Southwest says I only have 108,672.

Just concerned about not having enough come year end…

Yes points earned from the portal have always counted in the past including from bonuses.




Is it likely or unlikely that gift cards will work even though they are listed in the terms as not counting? I know you can’t give guarantees, but from similar offers in the past, have you happened to have heard of this working or failing?

P.S. Thanks for the post!
