Most Likely Today Only: As found on today’s Frequent Miler’s Portal Alerts, Sears is offering 10 points per dollar through the Southwest Rapid Rewards Shopping Portal.  It has been a long time since we’ve seen Sears at 10X through any shopping portal (but 8X and 9X offers are not too rare).  Points earned through the Southwest portal do count towards the Southwest Companion Pass.   Double dip for 20X Sears allows earning points for buying…

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…

How to feed the hungry and fly for free

UPDATE 12/1/2014: The offer that this deal was based on has expired earlier than advertised.

Southwest Airlines has, in my opinion, the single best deal in the travel industry: earn 110,000 points in one calendar year and they’ll give you a Companion…
