*Points conditions: Transactions are nonrefundable and nonreversible. Please allow 72 hours for points to post to the applicable Rapid Rewards® account. Purchased, gifted, transferred, and donated points do not count toward A-List, A-List Preferred, or Companion Pass qualification. A valid credit card is required to complete point purchase, gift, and transfer transactions. Points can be bought for personal use, as a gift, or transferred in blocks of 1,000 during promotional periods and 500 when off promotion with an initial minimum purchase of 2,000 points and a daily combined maximum of 60,000 points. All Rapid Rewards rules and regulations apply and can be found at Southwest.com/rrterms. Southwest® reserves the right to amend, suspend, or change the Rapid Rewards program and/or Rapid Rewards program rules at any time without notice. Rapid Rewards Members do not acquire property rights in accrued points. The number of Rapid Rewards points needed for a particular Southwest flight is set by Southwest and will vary depending on destination, time, day of travel, demand, fare type, point redemption rate, and other factors, and is subject to change at any time until the booking is confirmed.

**Points can be donated in blocks of 500 with a minimum donation of 500 points and a daily maximum of 60,000 points. Unless Southwest Airlines and a charity jointly announce otherwise, no portion of the purchase price that a Passenger pays for a ticket is paid to any charity or may automatically generate Rapid Rewards points for any charity, even those Southwest Airlines preselects as eligible recipients of the Rapid Rewards donation program. Southwest Airlines reserves the right to change the charities that are eligible to participate in the Rapid Rewards donation program at any time without notice.
