Deal Details

In the Rapid Rewards shopping portal, you can subscribe to New York Times digital subscription for 4 weeks for just 99 cents and net 1300 points for doing so.

https://rapidrewardsshopping.sout...?mids=3260

The good thing here is that SWA deposits the 1300 points at the 2 week mark at which point you can call 877-698-5635 to cancel the subscription so you don't pay the $15 after expiration.

This works out to 13.13 points per cent!

BONUS to make it even SLICKER:
Using the same rapid rewards shopping sign-in, you can sign up for two subscriptions to the NYT with a different name and credit card (your significant other?) and it will still deposit to the same RR account!

Cheers and happy flying!


Edit:
The disclaimer of "Not eligible on subscriptions cancelled prior to 120 days.", just means that accounts cancelled in the past 120 days are not eligible for this offer again.

Worked successfully for United points per Flyertalk with the same disclaimer:

Seems to be with most airlines too:

Rapid rewards shopping mall purchases do count toward your Companion Pass earning so this should count as well. See attachment.

Is 1,400 UA miles > 1,300 SW pts?

Thanks! giving this a try. I'm just 800 points away from being able to redeem for a gift card.

So I'm assuming that you can only choose one of the airline programs to take advantage of this offer? I've got each of the airline credit cards that are listed.

Also, anyone know if I could try this with a Chase personal card AND business card to double dip?

It seems we can cancel without calling. I see the option in "My Account".

Good question. I would like to know as well. Would be nice to 5x dip. Wink

I did AA 1500 miles. I checked UA and I only saw 900 miles.

Does this count towards the companion pass? I've found deals like telefloral and turbo tax promotions with southwest don't count towards the companion pass.
Can't speak to this offer, but Teleflora counts for the companion pass. At least it did during their Valentines day promo, although it was only a base amount of 1250 per order over $39.99. Mine have posted already and verified as counting.

This cancellation button only directs you to the customer service number to cancel. You still have to call. Sorry Smilie

At this point I believe it's just smartest to apply under whatever airline you deem most valuable. I personally needed both AA and SWA and chose SWA since I fly domestic more (and i have CP).

Ah well. I have a UA account with a secondary card so I'll try that later at home as well for more UA miles. Cool

If you're paying with Paypal can't you go into Paypal in a couple of weeks and cancel NY Times as one of your preapproved payments? That may be the easiest IF you're using Paypal.

You know that's a good point. Can't speak to it because I haven't tried. Want to try it out and report back? hehe

I have credit cards under 2 names (maiden and married name) so can I use those 2 credit cards to sign up twice? Or does it matter that the billing address is the same? If so, if your "significant other" is a spouse, then using their credit card won't work either.
