Today Only (offer ends at 11:59 PM EST):
The Southwest Rapid Rewards Portal is currently offering 6 bonus points per dollar at Staples. They also have JC Penney at 9X, but that (to me) is less exciting)…
Of course, since this is an office supply store, you can pay with a Chase Ink card and earn an additional 5 points per dollar for a total of 11X! To earn even more than 11X, buy e-gift cards to other merchants, then go through a portal to that merchant and buy stuff using those gift cards!
- You do not have to pay with a Southwest Airlines credit card
- Points earned from the portal count towards the Southwest Companion Pass.
- Points earned from your Chase Ink card do not count towards the Southwest Companion Pass even if you transfer points to Southwest
- If you purchase Visa gift cards or Staples gift cards you most likely will not earn portal points. In my recent experience, though, gift cards to other merchants (Sears, Whole Foods, etc.) do earn points.
- It can take anywhere from days to weeks for points to show up from portal purchases.
